Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Terms and Conditions

Daily dog walking consists of a 30/60 minute visit. Most days a 30/60 minute walk will take place. In the case of extreme weather conditions, e.g. blinding rain or snow, or pet injury/ illness, or on client request, the dog will be given time outside to relieve him/herself and then the rest of the visit will be spent inside with client-approved activities.
