I understand that this agreement creates binding legal obligations between myself and Gochenauer and I have read it carefully.
1. Boarding Charges
I agree to pay the daily boarding rate for my Pet in addition to any extra services or products requested by me. I have been fully informed and understand of the posted hours that I can drop off and pick up my Pet and I understand that I am charged for the full day that my Pet is dropped off, no matter the time of day. I understand that, from Monday to Saturday, if I pick up my Pet before 11 :00am, I will not be charged the daily boarding rate for that day. I understand that, if I pick up my Pet after 11 :00 am on such day, I will be charged for the full day. I am also aware that if my Pet is picked up on a Sunday, then I am charged for the full day regardless of the pick-up time.
2. Vaccinations and Conditions

I understand that Gochenauer, in its sole judgment and discretion, will take all necessary precautions and actions with respect to the health and well-being of my Pet. I understand that my Pet can become infected with Canine Influenza Virus (dog flu) or Tracheobronchitis ( canine cough), or such other airborne viruses, during his/her stay with Gochenauer. My Pet has been vaccinated by my Veterinarian for these viruses according to their protocol, and I will not hold Gochenauer responsible for the cost incurred for such treatment or if my Pet develops these viruses. I will seek advice from my veterinarian if either of these viruses develop. I further understand that, should my Pet have any physical or behavioral conditions that may cause him/her to be a hazard to itself, or another animal or person that I have a legal obligation to disclose this information to Gochenauer prior to my Pet's stay.

If my pet should require medical attention while in their care, I understand that Gochenauer will first attempt to contact me if time permits, to inform me of the condition, and also attempt to contact my Veterinarian to schedule an appointment. However, should the nature of my Pet's illness require an office visit, I understand that Gochenauer may take my Pet to whatever veterinarian it chooses in its sole discretion.
IF MYSELF, OR MY EMERGENCY CONTACT ARE UNREACHABLE, I GIVE MY CONSENT TO AND AUTHORIZE GOCHENAUER TO ACT AS MY AGENT AND TO SEEK CARE AND MAKE MEDICAL DECISIONS FOR MY PET ACCORDING TO GOCHENAUER'S SOLE JUDGMENT AND DISCRETION IN CONSULTATION WITH A LICENSED VETERINARIAN, AND I AGREE TO PAY FOR THOSE SERVICES FOR MY PET, OR REIMBURSE GOCHENAUER FOR SUCH COSTS, AT (PLEASE CHECK ONE): 4.
