1. Release of Liability: I understand and hereby release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue Canine Cottage, Inc. and any of its owners, members, investors, officers, managers, employees and agents for any liabilities for injuries or illnesses to myself, my dog or any property of mine, which may arise out of services and/or products provided by Canine Cottage, Inc.. I understand that this is a full, complete and knowing release with no right of recourse.
