I (we) agree that the club holding these events has the right to refuse this entry
for cause which the club shall deem sufficient. In consideration of the acceptance
of this entry and of the holding of these events and of the opportunity to have the
dog judged and to win prizes, ribbons, or trophies, I (we) agree to hold the AKC,
the event-giving club, their members, directors, governors, officers, agents,
superintendents or event secretary and the owner and/or lessor of the premises and
any provider of services that are necessary to hold these events and any employees or
volunteers of the aforementioned parties, and any AKC approved judge, judging at
these events, harmless from any claim for loss or injury which may be alleged to have
been caused directly or indirectly to any person or thing by the act of this dog
while in or about the event premises or grounds or near any entrance thereto, and
I (we) personally assume all responsibility and liability for any such claim; and
I (we) further agree to hold the aforementioned parties harmless from any claim for
loss, injury or damage to this dog.
Additionally, I (we) hereby assume the sole responsibility for and agree to indemnify,
defend and save the aforementioned parties harmless from any and all loss and expense
(including legal fees) by reason of the liability imposed by law upon any of the
aforementioned parties for damage because of bodily injuries, including death at any
time resulting therefrom, sustained by any person or persons, including myself
(ourselves), or on account of damage to property, arising out of or in consequence of
my (our) participation in this event, however such, injuries, death or property damage
may be caused, and whether or not the same may have been caused or may be alleged to
have been caused by the negligence of the aforementioned parties or any of their
employees, agents, or any other persons. I (WE) AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION,
CONTROVERSY OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE ENTRY, EXHIBITION OR ATTENDANCE
AT THESE EVENTS BETWEEN THE AKC AND THE EVENT-GIVING CLUB (UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED IN ITS
PREMIUM LIST) AND MYSELF (OURSELVES) OR AS TO THE CONSTRUCTION, INTERPRETATION AND EFFECT
OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE SETTLED BY ARBITRATION PURSUANT TO THE APPLICABLE RULES OF
THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION. HOWEVER, PRIOR TO ARBITRATION ALL APPLICABLE AKC
BYLAWS, RULES, REGULATIONS AND PROCEDURES MUST FIRST BE FOLLOWED AS SET FORTH IN THE
AKC CHARTER AND BYLAWS, RULES, REGULATIONS, PUBLISHED POLICIES AND GUIDELINES.
By agreeing, I (we) certify that Junior Handlers do not now, and will not at any
time, act as an agent/handler for pay while continuing to compete in Junior Showmanship.
Entries for Junior Handlers should be sure to enter the Junior Handler number into the
entry form. Should you not have your Junior Handler number, it may be obtained from
the American Kennel Club (919) 816-3776. If the Junior Handler is not the owner of
the dog identified on the face of this form, the relationship of the Junior
Handler to the Owner should also be noted on the form.
TrialToaster.com Limitation of Liability
I (we) agree that the owners and operators of TrialToaster.com are not responsible in any
manner for direct, indirect, special or consequential damages, however caused, arising out of
my (our) use of this Website, any web browser or any Internet connection, apparatus or software
used in the connection or communication with this Website or its constituent elements
or persons, including any damages suffered when transmitting confidential or sensitive
information to this Website or if the Website communicates such information to others.
I (we) understand that an entry fee is like an airplane ticket or hotel reservation in that
the reservation is made and a fee is paid, but it is my (our) responsibility to show up. If someone does
not show up for their flight, the airplane leaves without them. If I (we) do not show up for the event
after entering the trial, the event will go on without me (us) and I (we) are not entitled to a refund.
Further, since this is a competition, if I (we) do not win or place in the competition or decide that
the trial is not exactly to my (our) liking, much like a bumpy ride in the airplane, I (we) will have
still participated in the competition and having done so, will have gotten that for which I (we)
have paid and will not be entitled to a refund.
I (we) agree to pay all charges incurred at this Website as a part of Fees and if a refund is
expected for any reason I (we) will first seek such refunds from the event secretary or club hosting the
event, even if such refund is created by my (our) use of browser "back" and "refresh" functions
which I (we) have been here warned not to use.
I (we) understand that if, for any reason, the Event Secretary does not comply with my (our) legitimate refund request
I (we) may ask TrialToaster.com directly for the refund. If the refund is due according to this agreement
and these agreed upon terms, then a refund will be issued within 30 days after the end of the trial.
I (we) understand that all unlawful charge-backs will be prosecuted to the full extent of law and unfair charge-backs will be billed
to me (us) in the exact same manner as a bounced check would be and will be treated as such. I (we) also
understand and agree that non-payment for entry fees and/or charge back fees, if deemed to be in violation
of this agreement, will be dutifully reported to the AKC and disciplinary action will be requested which may effect
my (our) ability to show dogs in the future.
I (we) understand that in addition to the entry fees charged by the event holding
club, a $3 per first entry and $2 per subsequent entry for the same dog in the same
credit card transaction in each event will be added as the administration fee for
TrialToaster.com and such fee is non-refundable.
Agility Club/Secretary Special Notices
Handlers may opt to enter in a higher height division for all Regular
titling classes, but not in a division lower than their proper height division. Dogs
entered in the Preferred classes must compete at the required jump
height and may not compete in a jump height division higher or
lower than their proper height division.
All dogs that have not been officially measured for an Agility Jump Height Card
may still compete; however, they must be measured by a Judge of record, an Agility Field
Representative, or a Volunteer Measuring Official, prior to running. If measured by the
Judge of record, that measurement will be valid for this trial or back-to-back trials
only. If a measurement is necessary, it is the exhibitor's responsibility to have their
dog(s) measured prior to running.
Mixed breed dogs may be eligible to enter all-breed AKC agility trials at the
club's option. Mixed breed dogs entered in these events must list the breed name as
"Mixed Breed" and not as a breed hybrid and must include their AKC Canine Partners
number on the entry form and select the appropriate registration type.
There may be further Notices and Instructions on the printed premium list for any
event for which TrialToaster.com accepts online entries. All Terms, Conditions, Notices
and Agreements printed upon the AKC Official Entry Form and Premium List for any trial
which uses TrialToaster.com services is hereby made a part of this agreement. It is
your responsibility to find and read those premiums before entering the event.
I (WE) CERTIFY that I am the actual owner of the dog, or that I am the duly
authorized agent of the actual owner whose name I have entered above. In consideration
of the acceptance of this entry, I (we) agree to abide by the rules and regulations of
The American Kennel Club in effect at the time of this event, and by any additional
rules and regulations appearing in the premium list for this event, and further agree
to be bound by the "Agreement" shown above and on any and all official printed entry
premiums and entry forms. I (we) certify and represent that the dog entered is not a
hazard to persons or other dogs. This entry is submitted for acceptance on the foregoing
representation and Agreement. I (we) agree to conduct myself (ourselves) in accordance
with all such Rules and Regulations (including all provisions applying to discipline)
and to abide by any decisions made in accord with them.
