Pink Pucci Dog Grooming and Training Agreement

  1. Current Vaccinations/Veterinarian Information: By signing this agreement, owners verify their dog(s) is current on rabies, distemper, and Parvo-Virus vaccinations. Please provide proof of vaccination to Pink Pucci Dog Grooming and Training as well as current veterinarian information if applicable. 

  2. Aggressive or dangerous dogs: Owners must inform Pink Pucci Dog Grooming and Training if their dog(s) bites, has bitten, or is aggressive to people, other dogs, or specific grooming procedures. Muzzles may be used if necessary. Muzzling will not harm your dog and protects both the dog and the groomer. Pink Pucci Dog Grooming and Training reserves the right to refuse/stop service for such dogs at any time before or during the grooming process, and charge an aggressive dog fee, in addition to the regular grooming charge. Pink Pucci Dog Grooming and Training will notify the owner if the grooming needs to be canceled. Groomings that are performed to aggressive dogs may be imperfect due to the conditions the grooming is done in.

  3. Health or Medical Problems & Senior Dogs: Grooming procedures can sometimes be stressful, especially for a senior dog or a dog with health problems. These procedures can expose hidden or aggravate known medical problems, during or after the groom. Because senior dogs with health problems have a greater chance of injury these dogs will be groomed for cleanliness and comfort, and the style that will not add to their stress. In the interest of your dog, this agreement will give Pink Pucci Dog Grooming and Training permission to obtain immediate veterinary treatment for your dog should it be deemed necessary by Pink Pucci Dog Grooming and Training. We will do our best to contact you first, then take your dog to your authorized veterinarian or to the nearest available veterinarian. It is agreed that all expenses for veterinary care will be covered by the dog's owner upon signing this agreement.

  4. Mat Removal: Dogs with matted coats need extra attention during their grooming session. Mats left in a dog's coat will only grow tighter and can strangle the dog's skin or eventually tear it open. Pink Pucci Dog Grooming and Training does not wish to cause serious or undue stress to your dog, and will not continually de-mat your dog. We believe in comfort over vanity. Mats can be very difficult and uncomfortable to remove and may require the dog to be shaved. When necessary, removing a heavily matted coat includes risks of nicks, cuts or abrasions due to warts, moles or skin folds trapped in the mats. Heavy matting can also trap moisture and urine near the dog's skin allowing mold, fungus or bacteria to grow, causing skin irritations that existed prior to the grooming process. After-effects of mat removal procedures can include itchiness, skin redness, self-inflicted irritations or abrasions and failure of the hair to regrow. Shaved dogs are also prone to sunburn and should either have sunscreen applied daily or should be kept out of the sun until their hair grow sufficiently to protect the skin. In some cases, dogs can also exhibit brief behavioral changes. There is an extra charge for dematting. Prevention is the best defense against matting; therefore, be sure to schedule regular grooming appointments. We will do our best to remove mats but not at the expense of your dog experiencing pain or discomfort. Therefore a severely matted dog may not have a grooming outcome you would expect.

  5. Accidents: There is always the possibility an accident could occur. Grooming equipment is sharp. Even though we use extreme caution and care in all situations, possible problems could occur, including cuts, nicks, and scratches. In most cases, this can happen when a dog is wiggling or moving around. Every effort will be made to ensure your dog is groomed as safely as possible, but an excited dog can be dangerous to continue to work on. We reserve the right to end the grooming session, even if the groom is not completed.

  6. Parasites: If you suspect your dog has fleas or ticks, prompt and thorough action on your dog is needed. A flea infestation can lead to tapeworm and other health problems. If fleas or ticks are found during the grooming process, you will be charged an additional fee for flea removal. Ticks found will be removed for an additional charge. If ticks are found, we strongly suggest that you have your dog test for Lyme disease. Parasites are a health hazard to your dog, as well as to humans.

  7. Hold Harmless Agreement: By signing this agreement you agree to hold Pink Pucci Dog Grooming and Training, its owners, groomers, and staff of liabilities, financial, and otherwise, loss or claim including but not limited to veterinarian bills arising from any condition of the listed dog(s), either known or unknown, to Pink Pucci Dog Grooming and Training or any other property of the Customer, which arise in any way from services and/or products provided by or as a consequence of customers association with Pink Pucci Dog Grooming and Training. It is also further understood and agreed that the terms of this agreement can change at any time, without notice, and will override any and all prior signed contracts or releases. It is further understood that this clause appeals to any and all dogs groomed at Pink Pucci Dog Grooming and Training.

  8. Photography Consent: I hereby consent my pet(s) and/or me to be photographed and I AUTHORIZE Pink Pucci Dog Grooming and Training to use, reproduce, publish, transmit, and display the said photograph(s) in Pink Pucci Dog Grooming and Training display, advertisement, website, or other material for promotional purposes. Images are the property of Pink Pucci Dog Grooming and Training. The use of images remains loyalty free indefinitely on a voluntary basis and is not considered work for hire.

  9. Late Pick-Ups: If your dog is not picked up by closing for the day there will be a boarding fee of $70 per night. Full payment of all charges are due at the time of pickup. 

  10. Abandonment: California Law protects animals against abandonment. Any animal that is abandoned at Pink Pucci Dog Grooming and Training will be reported to Animal Protective Services and turned over to local animal control, humane society, or shelter in accordance with California Law (Section 1834.5 of the Civil Code). Such abandonment will constitute relinquishment of all rights and claim by the owner. Abandonment is a crime punishable as a misdemeanor.
