Terms and Conditions for services offered by Waggle Dogs – Effective from 1st January 2020

1.      The client is solely responsible for any and all harm or damage caused by their dog while it is under the care of Waggle Dogs services, and agrees to indemnify Waggle Dogs in full against any liability arising from such harm or damage to staff members, other animals, members of the public or any other third parties.

2.      The client agrees that, in using Waggle Dogs services, Waggle Dogs has relied on the client’s
representation that their dog is in good health and has not harmed or shown aggression or threatening behaviour towards any person or any other dog, apart from if they are partaking in a behavioural
consultation for these issues, where staff are aware and will take necessary precautions.

3.      Waggle Dogs reserves the right to refuse any dog deemed in their absolute discretion to be, or have the potential to be, dangerous or disruptive.

4.      The client agrees to notify Waggle Dogs immediately of any unwelcome, aggressive, procreative, or dangerous behaviour of their dog that has potential to cause harm to any other dog or individual.

5.      The client accepts that during the course of normal dog play their dog may sustain injuries. All dog play is carefully monitored to avoid injury, but scratches, punctures, torn ligaments, or other injuries may occur despite the best supervision.

6.      Waggle Dogs will not let dogs off the lead/long line when away from the client’s home address unless given permission to do so and the dogs recall has been deemed to be good enough.

7.      The client is responsible for the full cost of treatment of any injuries or illness that their dog receives while under the care of Waggle Dogs, together with any associated costs e.g. call-out charges.

8.      The client authorises Waggle Dogs to seek veterinary advice and/or treatment as they deem necessary; where possible this will be carried out by the client’s usual/preferred vet, but this cannot be guaranteed (e.g. in an emergency) and the client accepts that Waggle Dogs may, at their discretion, use any registered vet. The client agrees to pay all such costs immediately upon pick-up of their dog, or by agreement with Waggle Dogs.

9.      Waggle Dogs reserves the right to refuse a dog if the client fails to provide adequate proof of vaccinations  or the vaccinations are found to be expired or otherwise incomplete.

Such diseases and conditions include, but are not limited to: Distemper, Hepatitis, Kennel Cough (Bordetella), Parvovirus, Corona virus, worms, Lyme disease, Fleas, Pregnancy, Infectious Skin Diseases and Intestinal Parasites.
