Agility Waiver


    Please read and understand this document before signing. This is a release of liability waiver of certain legal rights. If you have any questions please ask us or consult an attorney.

    In consideration for my being permitted to participate in the activities of dog training and dog sports at Thin Blue Line K9, I agree to the following Waiver and Release:

    I acknowledge that these activities have inherent risks, hazards and dangers that cannot be eliminated. I understand that these risks, hazards and dangers include without limitation:

    That all classes, events and activities held at Thin Blue Line K9, are held on private property (that doesn’t belong to Thin Blue Line K9), on Thin Blue Line K9 owned agility equipment in the presence of other dogs (whose temperaments are not known and may be aggressive) and in the presence of other people (whose temperaments are unknown and may be aggressive).

    That these activities are potentially hazardous to both dogs and people. Dog training and dog sports may involve the physical act of walking and running over uneven, rough and hard terrain for both dogs and people. Running near and around agility equipment that may have rough edges, protruding parts and some of the equipment is off of the ground (as high as four and five feet) with no mats underneath.

    It is not uncommon in agility for people to fall, run into equipment, or fall due to slippage or tripping over a dog.

    It is not uncommon for dogs to run into the equipment, fall and slip (both on the ground and off of the equipment), strike jump bars and stanchions and to collide with their handlers.

    Dog training and dog sports may involve strenuous running for the people and running, climbing and jumping for the dogs. Dogs are animals and may exhibit aggression towards other dogs and people. Aggressive dogs may bite and may cause injury to people and/or other dogs.

    That it is not reasonable, feasible nor realistic for Thin Blue Line K9 and its representatives to have knowledge of and compensate for any medical conditions that the people or dogs may have that may be triggered or exacerbated by physical exertion and/or temperature extremes. Therefore, it is the participant’s responsibility to obtain medical or veterinarian approval for their (people and dogs) participation in the activity.

    I understand the risks, hazards and dangers as described above and have had the opportunity to discuss them with Thin Blue Line K9. I believe I have the physical conditioning and the degree of skill and coordination for me to engage in these activities safely. I understand that I have responsibilities to control my dog around other people and dogs.

  • is in good physical condition and is able to undertake this activity. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary. No one is forcing me to participate and I elect to participate in spite of the risks. I have adequate health, disability, and life insurance for myself. I am voluntarily using the services of Thin Blue Line K9 with full knowledge of the inherent risks, hazards and dangers involved and I accept any and all risk, hazards and dangers.

    I, for myself, my heirs, successors and executors, hereby knowingly and intentionally waive and release, indemnify and hold harmless Thin Blue Line K9, their directors, officers, employees, and volunteers from and against any and all claims, actions causes of action, liabilities, suits, expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) which are related to, arise out of, or are in any way connected with my participation in this activity including, but not limited to, negligence of any kind or nature, whether foreseen or unforeseen, arising directly or indirectly out of any damage, loss or injury to me or my property as a result of my engaging in these activities or the use of these services or equipment.

    I hereby give permission for transportation to any medical facility or hospital and I authorize for any qualified guide or medical personnel to render necessary emergency medical care for me or my dog.

    What our customers say

    “I’ve known Tom Radford for over 16 years. He is extremely professional, and knowledgeable about canine behavior. He has personally helped me and many others with with training our own service dogs. The effort he puts in to his true passion is second to none and the patience he has with dogs and their owners is a truly welcoming feeling when learning how to train your own dog. I highly recommend Tom Radford and Thin Blue Line K-9.”

    Trent Martin

    “I have had the opportunity to work with Tom for 18 years as a K9 handler, trainer, board member, and friend. He is well respected in all of these categories. In K9 training, we often speak of “your toolbox” of ideas, plans, tools, methods, and even tricks, all to use while training dogs. Tom’s toolbox is overflowing with ideas, and he is able to combine these in a manner that will get teams what they desire. I would recommend Tom’s training to anybody wanting to get the best out of their canine companion.”

    Dave Dewey

    “I cannot say enough about Tom as a trainer and person, his knowledge, understanding of dogs and people coupled with his years of training police dogs shone through when working with us our rescue pup. Zach came to us at 9 months with basic training after only a few sessions with Tom, Zach had better recall, listening and leash skills.  Zach’s biggest issue was being getting overly excited on the leash and although it is still a work in progress the tools that were provided by Tom continues to help us guide Zach towards the success he will need to overcome this issue.  Although we completed Zach’s training Tom continues to support and offer advice to us whenever we need it. Tom cares greatly about the dogs and people he works with I would recommend ThinbluelineK9 to anyone who is looking for a great trainer!”
