  1. Drop-off Agreement:

Board and Train dogs will be picked up & dropped off by the client unless other arrangements have been made.

At the Pickup, we will work with you for 2 hours. We will go over all that your dog has learned and work with you on how to start implementing the training into your daily life.

Follow up lessons are included to help ease the transition of your dog back into your home and to help you maintain the high standard for behavior we have at our kennel.

When bringing your dog for a Board and Train, all we need is one month’s worth of the Dog's Food, the Dog’s collar, any training collars you are currently using and any Medication including flea/tick and/or heart worm (only if they need to be given to your Dog while your Dog is with us.) The Dog’s vaccination records must be sent to us well before arrival; when signing this contract and paying your deposit.

Do NOT bring any bedding, toys or water/food bowls, treats or bones! Make sure your dog is on a leash/collar that they cannot slip out of when going from your car to our property and during the hand off to Run By Dogs. Your dog may be nervous, scared or excited and any of those things can lead to your dog escaping the collar and running off or around the property which is a safety issue for the dog, the staff and other dogs on the property.

When you arrive you will hand off the dog, you are NOT to hug, kiss, bend down or use a high pitch voice at all, just hand off the leash to the staff member and that is it. Not following these instructions can jeopardize the safety of handler.

The handler will bring the dog back to the kennel and put him/her in the kennel. You can leave any further instructions at that time.

  1. Physical Activity Agreement:

Your dog will be staying at a working kennel and not living in a padded room, your dog spends a good amount of time in the outside world doing lots of things around lots of natural objects, dirt, grass, cement, trees, fencing, bushes, swimming, interacting with lots of other dogs, and humans and it is likely that your dog is going to get scratched, bumped, bruised. Your dog will most likely get some wear and tear on them. Imagine when you went to summer camp for a few weeks; you get a little banged up from all of the activities. Things are bound to happen even though we have taken special care in maintaining a high standard of safety and cleanliness. As Owner you acknowledge and understand that there are certain risks involved in pet training, boarding, and care. You release, indemnify, and agree to hold Run By Dogs harmless from any and all manner of damages, claims, loss, liabilities, costs or expenses, causes of actions or suits, whatsoever in law or equity, (including, without limitation, attorney’s fees and related costs) arising out of or related to the services provided by Run By Dogs.
