Waiver & release of liability 

All puppies must have had their final puppy vaccinations before enrolling into day-care or any other pet care service at The Ruff Barn. All pups attending The Ruff Barn are required to be up to date with their C5 vaccinations. Owners must provide proof of C5 vaccinations from their vet. A temperamental trial is mandatory before enrolling a pup on any services. Owners must disclose any aggressive behaviour prior to enrolling their pups to The Ruff Bar​n.

In consideration of being accepted to have my dog(s) attend daycare at The Ruff Barn, I acknowledge that:    

I am the legal owner or guardian of the dog(s) that I wish to enrol at The Ruff Barn

In admitting my dog(s), The Ruff Barn is relying solely on my representations that my dog(s) are in good health and have not harmed or shown aggressive or threatening behaviour towards any person, animal, or thing.

The Ruff Barn is a cage-free environment and I accept that there are inherent risks associated with such an environment, including (but not limited to):

  • Transfer of communicable illness, such as Canine Cough (Kennel Cough)

  • Injuries, including broken nails, abrasions, cuts, and sore pads, and

  • Behavioural problems

Although The Ruff Barn carefully screens all applicants, occasionally it is discovered that this is not an appropriate environment for every dog. The Ruff Barn retains the discretion to temporarily or permanently remove my dog(s) from the day-care at any time.

The Ruff Barn will closely supervise the dogs, however, I agree that I am solely responsible for any loss, damage, or harm caused or contributed to by my dog(s) while using the facility. In case of an emergency and I cannot be contacted, I agree that The Ruff Barn may seek immediate veterinary care for my dog and I will be responsible for all costs that result from this. I understand that images of my dog may be recorded and used on your public website or social media.


I have read and understood The Ruff Barn Waiver & Release of Liability.

I release The Ruff Barn and its employees and agents, from all liability and indemnify The Ruff Barn from any or all claims of every kind and nature whatsoever, arising directly and indirectly, from my dog(s) participation in activities or use of service and including legal claims. I have read and understood this agreement and I understand I am waiving certain legal rights by signing and agreeing to this document.
