The Client acknowledges and agrees that there is no guarantee that their dog will achieve the desired level of training despite the best efforts of Body and Mind K9, LLC. The Client further understands that the recommendation of any other product or service by Body and Mind K9, LLC does not guarantee satisfaction with that product or service.
