Honest and reliable dog walkers

Terms & Conditions

After initial contact it would be advantageous if I could visit you at your home to introduce myself to you and more importantly to your dog, where we can discuss your specific requirements.

WALKING

Ideally I walk only 3 dogs plus my own at any one time, unless you have specifically requested that your dog be walked on his/her own.

All dogs will be walked on the lead unless the owner has agreed to allow off lead activities and a disclaimer has been signed. I will not let your dog off the lead until I am confident of recall.

I will turn up to walk your dog as agreed without exception however walks may be shortened if I feel the weather conditions are dangerous to your dog ie excessive heat, storms etc.

If your dog is not neutered/spayed I cannot be held responsible if your dog impregnates or is impregnated by other dogs.

HEALTH

As a responsible dog owner you must advise me of any health issues regarding your dog that may affect them/me during their walks.

INSURANCE   

Deputy Dawg has Public Liability Insurance which covers walking whilst in my care; however Deputy Dawg cannot be held liable for any loss, injury, illness or death of the dog. It is recommended that owners will have their own full insurance cover.

Should any legal or other claim be made against your dog whilst in the care of Deputy Dawg, all costs will be covered by the owner.

KEYS & PAPERWORK

No keys or personal information will be passed on to any third party. Arrangements for keys will be agreed upon during initial visit, i.e. left in a safe place or Deputy Dawg to hold a spare key.

VETERINARY CARE & FEES

Should your dog need urgent attention whilst in the care of Deputy Dawg will make contact with you first however if this is not possible I reserve the right to make the decision and proceed with a visit to the vet and emergency treatment carried out.  It is agreed that any veterinary fees incurred will be paid by the owner.

DOG TRANSPORTATION

Owners are not insured when in my vehicle and you will therefore be traveling at your own risk if you wish to accompany your dog.

My vehicle is fitted with Dog Boxes which provides a safe and comfortable environment.

PAYMENT

One off walks – payment is to be made on the day of the arranged walk.

Regular walks – payment can be made at the end of each week or month end (as agreed).

MY COMMITMENT

I agree to adhere to any specific instructions given by the owner.

I will look after your dog as if he/she were my own and protect them from any preventable danger.
