Dreamland Pet Puppy Social Skill Support Policy and Service Agreement
Dog Health Agreement: The Client ensures that their dog has been seen by a qualified veterinarian on the recommended schedule and that their dog is healthy and up to date on all vaccinations and preventative care deemed required by their veterinarian. During participation in programs with Dreamland Pet, The Client agrees to keep their dog up-to-date on vaccinations as recommended by their veterinarian.
Though it is not mandatory for participation, Dreamland Pet strongly encourages program participants to maintain adequate flea and tick control for their dog along with the Bordetella vaccination (kennel cough).
The Client agrees not to attend any Dreamland Pet programs with a dog who is ill, injured or who is suspected of being ill or injured in any way. Any illness, injuries or suspected conditions that their dog may be experiencing or have been exposed to must be immediately disclosed. This includes but is not limited to lethargy, diarrhea, vomiting, coughing, lack of appetite, fever or dehydration.
Dog Suitability for Participation: The Client will disclose any fearful, aggressive or potentially unsafe details about their dog in advance of registration. Dreamland Pet and its representatives reserve the right to remove any dog from the program in the event the dog shows signs of excessive stress, discomfort, reactivity or presents a safety risk to other dogs or people in the program.
Due to current legislation no Pit Bulls or Pit Bull type dogs (including American bulldogs and Staffordshire Terriers) are permitted in our programs at this time. Exceptions may be made for mix breed dogs that have an unknown heritage which may or may not include Pit Bull.
While great care is taken to match dogs well, some puppies find puppy programs emotionally intense and possibly traumatic. To prevent psychological harm an alternative program or setting for your puppy may be suggested.
Understanding of Risk: In spite of supervision, accidents and injuries towards people and dogs can occur in puppy socialization programs. Social play between dogs often includes extensive physical contact including play biting, body slamming, play fighting and chase games. While developmentally appropriate for many dogs, minor injuries can result. Sprains, strains and pulled ligaments can also occur as a result of physical play between pups or mishaps with playroom equipment.
While the benefits of training and socialization for puppies is extensive, a risk of disease transmission through contact with other dogs can occur, as not all illnesses are preventable through vaccination and not all puppies will have their series of vaccinations complete. Please feel encouraged to discuss any concerns regarding your dog’s health with your veterinarian.
Photo and Video Release: The Client consents to the use of pictures, video and/or basic information regarding their pet for the purposes of education or promotion of Dreamland Pet and related programs. Promotional media may include social media, website, video and posters.
