I fully understand that the Activities could be dangerous and that there are risks relating to my participation in and/or observation of the Activities including the risk of serious bodily injuries and property damage to me or to my dog, which injuries and damage could arise out of my own or my dog’s actions or inactions, those of other individuals, or other dogs participating in the Activities, contact with other dogs orowners during the Activities, the conditions in which the Activities take place, my or my dog’s health conditions, or the negligence of the Released Parties named below or others. I also fully understand that all risks are not apparent, knowable, or foreseeable. I hereby knowingly and voluntarily assume all risks relating to the Activities and otherwise while my dog and I are in or around the Doggy Dip at the SFAC, including the risks of serious bodily injuries and illness to me and/or my dog such as permanent disability, paralysis, or death. I promise and agree that I will not file a suit, pursue any claim, or seek to hold the SFAC or its owners, affiliates, and advertising or promotional sponsors, or any of their employees, representatives, agents or any one of the Released Parties liable or responsible for any costs, damages, or losses of any kind in the event I am injured, my dog is injured, or my property is damaged in connection with the Activities, whether or not the damage or injury is due in whole or in part to the negligence of any of the Released Parties.
I also agree that if anyone makes a claim on my behalf against any of the Released Parties, I will indemnify, defend, and hold the Released Parties harmless from and against any and all such claims at my own cost. I agree to be responsible for any and all injuries, illness, death, damages, costs, expenses, and other losses that could arise at any time as a direct or indirect result of my or my dog’s participation in or observation of the Activities.

I acknowledge that the SFAC and DCP will not be responsible for supervising me, my dog, or any individuals or dogs participating in the Activities. It will be my responsibility to discontinue participation in the Activities if I believe that any circumstances relating to the Activities are unsafe or that my or my dog’s participation in or observation of the Activities will result in harm to me, my dog, or any other person or dog.
I certify that I am the owner of the dog identified below and my dog is at least six (6) months of age, is current on vaccinations for Rabies, DHPP or DHLP, Parvo, and Bordetella, is in good health and is able to tolerate the presence of crowds and other dogs, and does not normally demonstrate dangerous or aggressive behavior towards persons or other dogs.
