Terms & Conditions
Welcome to Walkies With Una
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Every effort is made to arrive at our agreed time. There may be the odd occasion that the times may vary slightly. Animals have minds of their own and don't always appreciate the diary. If for some reason I am running late due to previous bookings or traffic. I will contact you ASAP to inform you should you have a regular time.
24 hours notice must be given for cancellations or changes of bookings or you will be charged for your appointment.
If for any reason I have had to cancel a walk at short notice ( less than 24 hours notice) I will offer the next walk free of charge. All dogs are given my full attention and if I am with a dog that is unwell or needs extra care this will be given and they wont be left alone until I am satisfied they are safe. I am sure that you want this for your pet and can appreciate the need for it with someone else's.
In cases of extreme weather dogs may have shorter walks should there be lack of shaded/cooler areas or streams/water to cool down in. In this situation I will return to their homes and dogs will be given extra attention, playing games or grooming during their time slot. Drinking water is available on all walks. Some dogs dislike rain and extreme wind. If your dog does not have a waterproof coat and is not hapy going out in the rain I will take them out to the toilet and make up the time ensuring your dog has had plenty of interaction.
Keys and Security
If you have given keys, alarm fobs or codes for your property to Walkies With Una
I will be the only person to hold keys, fobs and codes. These are kept in a locked box for which only I have access to when not in use.
Walkies With Una does not take responsibility for windows etc at properties. Windows and doors will not be opened and then left open when leaving a property.
Insurance and Liability
Walkies with Una is insured through protectivity insurance. Certificates of this can be seen at www.facebook.com/walkieswithuna . Walkies with Una are not liable for damage or injury caused by your animals to other people, animals or property. Full details regarding your dogs training, personality, likes and dislikes will be requested on the client information form. Failure to disclose any information that enables your pet and others to be kept safe may result in extra costs being brought against you.
It is advised that all owners have their pets insured. Not only is it great to have a fall back should your dog need medical assistance however it can also help in the event of your dog causing damage.
ID and Microchipping.
It is UK law that all dogs must have a valid up to date micro chip. It is also UK law that all dogs when out in public wear ID tags. These must include name and address inc post code of the owner. I would also recommend they include the dogs name and your phone number. This would make it easier to contact you in the event of a dog becoming lost or escaping.
Whilst your dogs health and safety is of paramount importance to me I can not be held responsible for fleas, ticks or any other illness that can be caught in a dogs day to day life. As the dogs owner it is your responsibility to ensure that your dog is in the best of health and to arrange its vaccines and treatments. If I notice anything that is of concern I will notify you. If a dog does show symptoms of a cough, fleas etc I will notify the owner and precautions taken so not to spread the illness in the case of coughs etc. If upon arrival or during a walk I am not happy with your dogs health the walk may well be cut short or I will spend time at home with them doing suitable activities. If your dog is not deemed fit to walk and notice was not given by you then you will be charged for the visit.
Behaviour & Aggression
As a dog trainer I am comfortable walking dogs that have extra needs or have not been taught or have trouble with basic commands or socialisation skills. It is essential that you are honest with me about your dogs level of obedience and their behaviour on and off of the lead. This is for their own safety, mine and other members of the public. If I feel that your dog does not have good recall and their behaviour is not safe around other dogs or people then they will be kept on a lead be it short or long and muzzled ( provided by yourself) if required. I am able to train dogs but this entails a separate cost and during a walking session I am under no obligation to train your dog.
If a dog has shown unwarranted aggression towards other dogs when out on walks with me I will inform you and they will be kept on a lead when ever necessary.
Accidents In The Home
If upon arrival your dog has messed in the home I will do my best to clean the area for hygiene reasons and this will be taken from their usual walking time or charged extra to the bill. I will not use chemicals such as bleach etc due to health and safety reasons but will do the best I can with resources available. You will be notified of this.
Your personal details will not be shared with anyone with out your prior consent. All information supplied to me in both verbal, text, email or social media message will be kept private and confidential.
The only time your animals details will be shared is with a vet or in case of emergency.
Please contact me if you do not wish for me to share photos and videos of your animals on social media or the website.
Please contact me if you do not wish for me to tag you in photos and videos on social media
Invoices are sent out mid month and due by the last day of the month. This gives you the client, the opportunity to part pay until the due date if need be. Payments can be made by bank transfer, cash or paypal. Bank transfer is always the preferred method. Invoices are sent out regardless of the method of payment via paypal but please inform me if you wish not to pay through paypal and I edit them my end to say you have paid. I do it this way as it makes life easier with record keeping.
Prices are able to view at www.facebook.com/walkieswithuna and are also discussed when I book a vist via facebook or via text or telephone.
Late payments may cause you to loose your regular slot. Late payment can incur charges and continual late payment will result in cancellation of services.
Pet Sitting, Cats and Other Small Animals
Details of feeding times, medication and requirements will be taken at the time of booking. No responsibility will be taken by Walkies With Una for injury to cats that have been let out if this is the cats normal routine and been authorised by you the owner. If your cat is allowed out and has not returned when expected you will be informed and the next course of action will be discussed. If I have not heard from you within 24 hours attempts will be made to find your pet through social media, lost pet services and local vets. You will be updated via text or facebook message if your on holiday for your peace of mind regarding your animals activity.
If your animal needs medical attention then they will be taken to their usual vets with you being responsible for the bill.
