Purpose of the Agreement
At The Indoor Dog Park, we believe in fun, safety, cleanliness, and sophisticated autonomy for all Guests. The Park is a direct reflection of the quality of our Guests and the following agreement is put in place to ensure a great experience for all. Remember, as a Guest of The Indoor Dog Park, you are part of a tight-knit community of responsible dog owners. Treat other Guests as your family and the Park as you would your own home.
This Agreement includes a release of liability and waiver of legal rights and deprives you the right to sue the owner(s) of any The Indoor Dog Park location or related parties. Do not accept these Terms and Conditions and do not use The Indoor Dog Park property or services unless you have read and understand this Agreement in its entirety. Seek the advice of legal counsel if you are unsure of its effect.
In consideration for your dog(s) being permitted to come to the Park or use any Park services, you agree to all of the policies, procedures, release, terms and conditions set forth below. You also warrant that all information provided by you shall be true and correct. This Agreement applies at all Park locations.
Guest agrees to hold sole responsibility for all activity under their account and agrees to uphold all current and future policies, procedures, standards, and rules of The Indoor Dog Park. The primary Member or Guest on the account is responsible for all activity, whether present or not.
Authorized use covers only the dogs specified in your Membership Registration or Booking form submission and accepted by The Indoor Dog Park's verification process. A Guest may never bring an unauthorized dog to the Park or on Park property.
As the primary contact on your account, you are responsible for all activity associated to your account, including any activity by your party or people that accompany you to the Park.
MEMBER ORIENTATION/TEMPERAMENT EVALUATION
A passing Temperament Evaluation is required for every dog prior to Membership. In the event that the dog described in the booking form does not pass the Temperament Test, the dog may not use the Park. You may schedule additional temperament evaluations after further training has been completed. Temperament Evaluations are performed by Park staff and the passing determination is made at the Park's sole discretion. Temperament Evaluations are done as part of the Orientation session.
SINGLE PLAY PASS
Single Play Pass Guests are under direct supervision of Park Staff at all times. If a Single Play Pass guest wishes to join the Park as a Member, Park staff may elect to waive the Member Orientation and Temperament Evaluation in lieu of satisfactory behavior exhibited by the registered dogs during the play session. The Indoor Dog Park reserves the right to deny this waiver for any reason or no reason at all.
Single Play Pass Guests are not automatically enrolled Members of the Park. By purchasing a Single Play Pass and scheduling your appointment, you agree to all Terms and Conditions set forth in this Agreement. You understand that nonconformity to any portion of the policies herewith may result in immediate termination of service and removal from the Park. This includes, but is not limited to unforeseen adverse behavior of your party or your dog(s), at the sole discretion of Park staff.

MEMBERSHIP CANCELLATION POLICY
Any Party may cancel Membership at any time. Written notice of cancelation must be provided to firstname.lastname@example.org with at least 5 days notice.
To reactivate a canceled Membership, send your request to email@example.com. Your request will be evaluated by Park Staff and may be rejected or accepted for any reason, at the Park Staff's sole discretion. If accepted, a Reactivation Fee may apply. Membership reactivations are evaluated on a case-by-case basis and may require attending a Membership Orientation/Temperament Evaluation. A previously passing evaluation may not suffice as a dog's temperament may change over time.
MEMBERSHIP HOLD POLICY
In the event you or your dog are unable to utilize the Park for a defined and temporary timeframe (medical reasons, holiday, or other life events), you may request your membership to be but on hold by emailing your request to firstname.lastname@example.org with at least 5 days notice. Holds will be evaluated by Park staff and approved or denied on a case-by-case basis, at their sole discretion. After a membership has been placed on hold, the next scheduled payment is moved forward and all future scheduled payments will also be moved forward accordingly. All future payment dates are moved forward the same number of days that the membership is on hold. Upon 3 months of continuous hold, your membership will be cancelled.
All booking fees for any service, monthly Membership dues, professional services fees, and sales of goods are final and nonrefundable. If a booked session is canceled, you may be refunded the session fee minus any processing fees incurred upon written request to email@example.com at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled session. Refunds are not permitted for cancellations within 24 hours of your appointment. There are no refunds for gift certificates.
LATE ARRIVAL AND NO-SHOW POLICY
You are asked to arrive on time to any bookings/appointments. A grace period of 15 minutes will be permitted. If you are less than 15 minutes late, it is based on the Staff's sole discretion to determine if the remainder of your allotted time may be used for the originally scheduled purpose. If the Staff member deems the remaining time insufficient, you will be asked to reschedule and you will incur a $15 rebooking fee. If you choose to not reschedule, it is considered a cancellation and no refund will be given. A Guest is a "no show" if they fail to appear for their scheduled appointment after 15 minutes from the start of the appointment. In this event, the appointment is considered canceled and no refund will be given.
You may not leave your dog(s) at the Park unattended at any time for any reason. You may not leave the building without your dog(s). If your dog is left unattended for any amount of time, the dog will be deemed "Abandoned". If your dog is Abandoned at the Park, the Park will become its legal owner and guardian. The Park will, in its sole discretion, determine whether to re-home the dog or relinquish it to a shelter or rescue of the Park's choice. You fully understand and agree that if you abandon your dog at the Park, you may be unable to retrieve possession of your dog and will have no recourse against the Park.
