I understand that the success of the program relies on a combination of skills acquired by both the dog and the owner. It is important to note that behavior is not a fixed trait, and even trained behaviors require ongoing practice to be maintained. I understand behavior can be modified, but it should be understood that the dog is never considered completely "cured" of such tendencies. Ultimately, the responsibility for the dog's behavior lies with the owner. While Sammye's Dogs LLC will exert reasonable efforts to help us achieve our goals, they cannot guarantee specific performance outcomes for either the client or the dog as a direct result of their professional animal behavior consultation and training. I acknowledge that obedience training and behavior modification activities involve inherent risks of damage or injury to both dogs and individuals. I accept full financial and moral responsibility for the actions of my dog(s) during these activities. Furthermore, I acknowledge that my dog(s) may be exposed to various environmental conditions, including but not limited to interactions with people and other animals, adverse weather conditions, and crowded areas with different types of traffic. I will make every effort to obey training advice and safety precautions as listed in writing and as explained to me verbally. I will ask for clarification when needed. I allow Sammye's Dogs LLC and Her Agents to photograph or video record my dog and/or me to be shared for education and/or advertisement. I, as the client, agree that neither I, nor my heirs, assignees, or legal representatives, will make any claims, file lawsuits, or take any actions to attack the property of Sammye's Dogs LLC, her family, acquaintances, or any other person acting on her behalf (referred to as "Her Agents"), for any injury or damage caused to or by my dog(s), regardless of how it was caused, whether through action or negligence by Sammye's Dogs LLC or Her Agents. I forever release Sammye's Dogs LLC and Her Agents from any and all liability and demands that I, as the client, my heirs, assignees, and legal representatives may have or may come to have in the future for any injury or damage caused to or by my dog(s), assuming all associated risks. I forfeit all rights to bring a suit against Sammye's Dogs LLC her Her Agents for any reason. In return, I will receive training, and upon reasonable request, Sammye’s Dogs LLC shall provide me with guidance and ongoing support throughout this contract term. Additionally, Sammye's Dogs and I, as the client, agree not to engage in any negative or untrue disparagement or discredit of each other in any form of communication or on any social media platform, including but not limited to Facebook, Yelp, Twitter, Google, and similar websites.  Sammye's Dogs LLC and I hereby agree to mediate and/or arbitrate any misunderstanding that may arise pursuant to the terms contained herein. In any action or proceeding arising out of this agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to reimbursement of costs and legal fees.
