Don’t Sign That Waiver at Doggy Daycare!

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (11-07-2022) #804B: Jeremy Cohen of Boston Dog Lawyers talks about how to protect yourself legally when using a boarding facility, doggy day care or even a dog walker. These establishments are not regulated! When you sign a waiver, you are absolving them of any responsibility for your dog getting attacked, sick or injured. Cohen mentions cases of dogs getting seriously harmed by other dogs or just plain negligence – preventable tragedies you might not want to think about but need to consider the legal ramifications.
