    Terms and Conditions

    UKDT, RMSDP and Valhalla Training Grounds and its employees, volunteers, officers, directors, partners, agents, insurers, affiliates, and assigns, will exercise the utmost of due care to protect the health and safety of my dog while using the Services and/or Training associated with the UKDT, RMSDP and Valhalla Training Grounds Services and/or Training.

    I agree that my dog does not have any condition that could potentially jeopardize the health of other dogs and/or people.

    I understand that even with vaccinations, illnesses in dogs may occur. Particularly, I understand that even if my dog is vaccinated for Bordetella (commonly known as Kennel Cough) there is a chance that my dog can still contract Kennel Cough.

I understand that service at my dog’s veterinarian may not be feasible in the event of illness or injury and further consent to any professional veterinarian being retained to render care for my dog.

    I understand that, in the event of an emergency, UKDT, RMSDP and Valhalla Training Grounds will make reasonable efforts to ensure the safety of my dog which may include removing them from the Training Facilities and contact me and/or my designated emergency contact regarding any treatment, illness, injury or potential problems as soon as the condition is deemed non-life threatening and/or contact is possible.

    I furthermore understand that any fees or costs associated with injury or illness are my responsibility.
