WAIVER AND RELEASE AGREEMENT

 

Please read carefully before signing. This is a release of liability and waiver of certain legal

rights.

 

In consideration for my being permitted to participate in the activities of kennel visits, dog

sledding, dog sled rides, dog carting, dog cart rides, dog-pulled ATV rides, petting and handling of dogs, skijoring, bikejoring, canicross; and the use of property and animals, I agree to the following Waiver and Release:

 

I acknowledge that kennel visits, dog sledding, dog sled rides, dog carting, dog cart rides, petting

and handling of dogs, skijoring, bikejoring, canicross, dog-pulled ATV rides; and the use of property and animals have inherent risks, hazards, and dangers for anyone that cannot be eliminated.  I UNDERSTAND THAT THESE RISKS, HAZARDS, AND DANGERS INCLUDE WITHOUT LIMITATION:

1. The propensity of the dogs to behave in ways that may result in injury, harm or

death to persons on, near or around them;

2. The unpredictability of the dog’s reaction to such things as sounds, sudden

movement, unfamiliar objects, persons, or other animals;

3. Certain hazards such as surface and sub-surface conditions;

4. Collision with other animals or objects;

5. The potential of the participant to act in a negligent manner that may contribute to

injury to the participant or others, such as sticking legs or arms out of the sled or cart or

purposefully abusing an animal;

6. Dog sledding, dog carting, dog-pulled ATV riding, skijoring, canicrossing, and/or bikejoring in rugged country;

7. Encounters with wildlife, animals, insects, and farm animals;

8. Temperature extremes;

9. Inclement weather conditions and the unavailability of immediate medical attention in the wilderness in case of injury.

 

I understand the risks, hazards and dangers described above and have had the opportunity to

discuss them with Linda Herdering or C. Mike Herdering, the owners and operators of Mountain Maryland  Kennels, LLC, DBA Husky Power Dogsledding and/or their staff.

 

I understand that these activities may require reasonable physical conditioning and a degree of

mobility to enter and exit the sled, cart, ATV or bike, to ride on the sled, cart, ATV or bike, and/or to stand on the sled, cart, ATV or bike.  I believe that I have the physical conditioning and mobility necessary for me to engage in these activities safely.
