    Pet Care Agreement Form

    1. I understand that there are benefits and risks associated with dogs socializing in a cagefree setting and I agree that the benefits outweigh the risks. I accept those risks.

    2. I understand that Wag Awhile is relying on my representation of my pet’s behaviour and medical condition and that my pet is in good health.

    3. I understand and agree that I am fully responsible for any harm my pet causes to another pet while attending Wag Awhile.

    4. I fully understand that dogs naturally play and that my dog may sustain injuries. At Wag Awhile all pets are monitored by our staff however accidents and injuries, etc. may occur despite supervision.

    5. I have provided Wag Awhile with full disclosure in regards to my pet’s behaviour. My pet has not shown aggression towards any pet or person. I agree that if my pet shows any such behaviour that I will advise Wag Awhile immediately.

    6. My pet has had a routine physical examination in the past year and is up to date on the required vaccines for admittance to Wag Awhile, including, DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis,Parvo, Parainfluenza), Rabies and Bordetella (Kennel Cough). Although my pet is vaccinated for Bordetella I understand that my pet may still contract Kennel Cough. I will not hold Wag Awhile responsible if this occurs. I will show proof of my pet's current vaccine status as requested by Wag Awhile from time to time.

    7. My pet has had a negative fecal in the past year. If at any point in time my pet has a positive fecal (positive for intestinal parasites), I will notify Wag Awhile and I will be required to show proof of a negative fecal for my pet before my pet is admitted back to daycare or boarding. I will provide a copy of a current vaccine certificate for my pet which is to be kept on file at Wag Awhile. I acknowledge that these requirements are for the safety and well being of all pets.

I understand that my puppy (if applicable) must have had a negative fecal before attending Wag Awhile. I will provide proof of my pet’s Rabies vaccine and negative fecal as requested by Wag Awhile.

    10. I agree that by 8 months of age my puppy will be spayed/neutered or my pet will not be able to attend daycare until such time that this has occurred. I understand that if my female dog comes into heat earlier she will not be allowed at Wag Awhile until her heat is finished and then the 8 month rule applies.

    11. I agree that by allowing my dog to attend Wag Awhile that neither Wag Awhile nor any of its directors, officers, employees or volunteers will be liable financially or otherwise for injury, illness, death or escape of my pet providing that reasonable care and precautions were taken.

    12. I agree that if at any point in time my pet is not behaving appropriately with the other pets that it is understood my pet will have some “quiet time” away from the other pets and will be reintroduced once my pet is calmer and well behaved.

    13. I understand that Wag Awhile, in its sole discretion, may decide whether or not to readmit my pet if my pet is displaying unwanted behaviour. If my pet is displaying“unwanted” behaviour I understand that my pet may be allowed to return once my pet has received some socialization training.

    Medical Release Form

    At Wag Awhile Doggie Daycare our mission is to ensure that your pet is safe and happy while in our care. We take this very seriously! We do our best to ensure that all dogs are screened for pre-existing medical conditions that would prohibit them from participating in cage free daycare. All preadmission forms are reviewed carefully and a temperament assessment is conducted prior to allowing pets into our facility.

    However, some things are beyond our control. As such we want to ensure that your pet is assessed quickly by a veterinarian if necessary. We have two conveniently located veterinarians nearby in case this need arises.

    We will contact you (and/or your emergency contact) if any such situation arises, but if your pet needs immediate attention he or she will be taken to a local veterinarian without delay.

    I understand that in the event of a medical emergency as determined by Wag Awhile Doggie Daycare, in its sole discretion, my pet will be taken to a local veterinarian for medical care. I authorize Wag Awhile Doggie Daycare to transport my dog and admit my dog to the nearest veterinary facility that is open and able to take my dog.

    I understand that I am fully responsible for any and all costs and expenses associated with the transportation to and the visit to the veterinarian and I will pay the veterinarian or Wag Awhile Doggie Daycare (as the case may be) for those costs upon pick up of my dog.

    I understand that Wag Awhile Doggie Daycare nor any of its owners, officers, directors, agents, employees or volunteers will not be liable financially or otherwise regarding any incident or medical care of my dog and that Wag Awhile Doggie Daycare is not responsible for any injury or death of any animal on or off of its premises.
