Terms of Service This agreement is between A Sound Beginning Program and the CLIENT/RELEASOR whereby, CLIENT/RELEASOR wishes to consult with A Sound Beginning Program about the behavior of his/her companion dog for the purpose of modifying the dog's behavior. CLIENT/RELEASOR understands and agrees that A Sound Beginning Program is in no way responsible for the behavior of the animal at any time, not now or in the future. Client further understands that every dog reacts in a different manner to training and behavior modification and that animals are, by nature, unpredictable.

I hereby release A Sound Beginning Program, as to attacks, bites, mauling, or all of them, by the aforementioned animal indicated above upon any person or animal. I hereby agree to exercise caution for the safety of myself, the animal, those around me and those animals around me while working with the animal. I agree to the terms of this agreement and understand that any injuries received by me or by my pet or other persons or animals while working with the animal are my own responsibility. This release may not be changed orally.

I authorize A Sound Beginning Program, its assigns and transferees to copyright, use and publish the same in print and/or electronically.
