Video release agreements and pets

    I'm a dog trainer and I'm wondering if I record instructional videos using dogs belonging to client's do I need their agreement to use that footage with people other than the owner?

    The videos would be of just me and the dog

    It would seem to be good practice, if not a legal obligation. If people are sending their dog to you for training, they won't expect their dog to be appearing in videos unless you've asked for permission.

    Absolutely, I wanted to be sure verbal agreement would suffice

    Our vet/cattery often takes photos/video of the animals for their facebook page. On the check in form there is a tick box to say if you do or do not consent.

    It strikes me that having a paper trail rather than a verbal agreement is much better in case there were issues in the future. If they fill in a form of some sort before sending the dogs to you, could you just include a tick box there?
