The Owner is responsible and will ensure that their dog is up-to-date with their vaccinations, flea, tic and de-wormer treatments.
The Owner accepts full liability for any loss or damage caused by their dog whilst been walked. Shaggy Dog Walkers are not held accountable for vet fees or third party claims whilst your dog is in our care.
The Owner is to make full disclosure of any quality or characteristic problems which might make your dog not suitable for walking including behavioural or health problems, antisocial behaviour including aggression, excessive loud barking or whining. Failure on the part of the owner to disclose any matter that might render the owner’s dog unsuitable for walking will be deemed a material omission amounting to a fundamental breach of our agreement.
We make every effort to contact the owner in the event of an emergency. We recommend owners provide us with a contact number of a trusted third party should we be unable to make contact. However, Shaggy Dog Walkers reserve the right to make decisions regarding your dog’s health provided it is at all times acting in the best interests of the dog and on the advice of a veterinary surgeon. The Owner is responsible for payment of any veterinary fees incurred by Shaggy Dog Walkers.
