Basic Behavior Cues

Novelty Items (walkers, canes. distractions)

Waiting at the Door

Handling by Humans

Preparing for a Visit

In submitting this registration form, I, as the legal owner of the dog being registered for this class, (a) assume all risks associated with our participation in dog training and behavior class/consultation (collectively, “Class”), (b) take complete responsibility for our actions before, after and during Class, and (c) release and agree to indemnify and hold harmless Elmbrook Humane Society (“EBHS”) from and against any and all claims, liabilities, losses, injuries, damages, suits, demands, actions or rights of action, of whatever nature, arising from, related to or in any way connected with our participation in Class.

I (a) give EBHS permission to use my likeness (including photos, images, recordings or videos of me) for promotional materials such as newsletters, social media postings, publications and other materials used to promote EBHS, recognize volunteer achievement and assist in fundraising, and (b) release EBHS and all persons acting with its permission and authority from any liability in connection with the taking, recording, publication or use of any such photos, images, recordings, or videos. I understand if I do not give permission to EBHS to use photos, images, recordings, or videos of me, that it is my responsibility to make sure I excuse myself from any photos, images, recordings, or videos of me. Check this box if you give permission.

I understand this class fee is not refundable and not transferable.

I understand my dog MUST be comfortable with other dogs and people while on a leash in a classroom setting as this class is not designed for “reactive”, overly aroused or fearful dogs that might bark or lunge at other dogs or people. As a force free training facility, no prongs, choke, shock or other correction collars are permitted.

I assume all responsibility for my dog’s vaccination status. Rabies vaccines are required by law in the state of Wisconsin and other vaccines and their schedule and timing should be discussed with a licensed veterinarian. EBHS does not require you to bring these records to class however we reserve the right to contact your veterinarian to confirm the Rabies vaccine at any time. Your dog must also be free from infections, parasites, fleas and contagious or transmissible diseases.
