Waiver and Release Acknowledgements
Acknowledgement and acceptance of risks associated with daycare
I agree that when my pet attends Scruffys that I have read, understood and accept the following risks involved. Whilst I understand that all care and effort will be taken to prevent injuries and whilst injuries rarely occur, injuries that may occur throughout the daycare day or grooming day could be, but are not limited to:
- Minor and Major dog scratches
- Minor and major dog bites
- Broken Bones
- Torn Ligaments
- Canine cough
- Foot infections and sore pads
- Worn down nails
- Muscle sprains
- Canine infectious diseases
- Breed specific injuries
Whilst it is understood that the daycare staff will exercise caution and their duty of care during the day, and that careful assessments are made on every dog that attends daycare, I am aware that due to the nature of the environment, my pet may be injured due to accidents and that no amount of supervision, sanitation or cleanliness could prevent an airborne illness such as canine cough from spreading
Permission to Seek Veterinary Treatment
I authorise Scruffys to attend a vet of their own choosing to seek veterinary attention for my dog should an undesirable incident occur or they suspect my dog of being ill and in need of immediate veterinary attention.
Breed specific Injuries and Injuries associated with age
I understand that should my dog fall into the following categories which are fence Jumping, high energy play / behaviour and/ or under 12mths of age that the risk of an accident occurring within Scruffys is higher. By bringing my dog to Scruffys I exclusively accept the fact that an accident may occur due to the below reasons no matter how much supervision and training is provided to my dog. I therefore will not hold Zinja Pty Ltd trading as Scruffys Doggy Daycare & Grooming responsible for any vet bills associated with the actions of my dog or for any of the reasons listed below.
- Injuries that could occur anywhere at any
- Injuries that could occur anywhere at any time due to general dog activity such as such as cruciate rupture and ligament damage.
Breed/Age specific prone injuries and illnesses that could occur anywhere at any time such as, but not limited to, tibial avulsions or Salter-Harris fractures
Risks Associated with Grooming
I am aware that should my pet be presented for grooming in a “matted” or otherwise anomalous condition and/or my pet is excitable or aggressive during the grooming process that I have read and understand the following:
- The groomer will exercise caution and their duty of care during the grooming process, however I am aware that due to the environment, its condition or temperament, my pet may be cut or grazed.
- The groomer will not de-matt my dog in line with its no-de-matting policy and will clip my pet as is necessary (in their opinion) to remove the matted coat.
- The Groomer may muzzle my dog or use grooming restraints in the interest of safety for my dog and the grooming staff should it be excitable or aggressive.
Late Collection Fees
I understand that Scruffy’s closes at 7:00pm sharp, and should I be late the following charges may apply: Up to 15 minutes = $15 / 15-30 minutes = $30 / 30-45 minutes = $75 Should I be later than 30 minutes, or I am unable to make arrangements for my dog to be picked up within the time, my dog may be boarded overnight at a fixed cost of $150 or taken to Collaroy Pound facility.
Flea's and Ticks
I agree that my dog is on a regular flea, worm and tick prevention treatment and therefore should not have fleas, ticks or worms, nor be able to pick up fleas, ticks or worms from other dogs at Scruffys.
Full Release Statement
I have read all of the statements above as proved by my signature or initials and understand all of the risks involved in my dog attending Scruffys. I do not and will not hold any of the staff or the business responsible for any incidents that occur or deem them liable for the veterinary costs that may be incurred due to accidents. I understand I will be responsible for all veterinary costs to do with my dog in the event of an accident, illness or injury or should my dog cause injury to any other dog within the facility. I understand that due to me not holding Zinja Pty Ltd trading as Scruffys Doggy Daycare and Grooming liable for any costs associated with the above that it is strongly recommended to me to have full cover Pet Insurance for my dog.
