I have a nice piece of training grounds to use and would like to invite a small group over to join in. The landowner would be more at ease if we had everyone sign off on a waiver first. I am more of a handshake, and less of a legal guy. Does anyone have a standard form they use or have used in the past? Thanks for your help.

probably something here that you can use

Conditions for a Waiver Forms to be legal and binding:

The waiver form should be explicit and unambiguous to a reasonable person.
A waiver form must be made voluntarily and with precise knowledge of the right or privilege to be waived.
A waiver form must possess 3 basic components to make it legal and binding: offer, acceptance, and consideration.
One may not relinquish liability for a few or all intentional activities.

I hope Ted will chime in on this thread because, I don't think legally you can forfit your rights prior to an event occurring. I see wavers as a feel good contract only. When money changes hands, the games changes though.

Interesting you mentioned this, I know a land owner I offered to give a waiver to for permission to train on his property. He told me since I was not paying him that he did not need or want one. The waiver I showed above was for property you pay 10 bucks per dog per day, which may make a difference possibly?

Possibly but I have always been told waivers are worthless even when money is involved. By charging to train, the owner accepts any liability and changes his insurance requirement from personal to commercial. From the insurance companies perspective, they would still have to pay if negligence were established by third party with or without wavier. I have a hand shake agreement with all my landowners, I need them more than they need me.

When we went to NorCal, we had to sign a waiver before we were allowed on the grounds.
