  3. You will need to supply the necessary leads, harnesses and collars for the duration of the stay.  Please ensure there is a harness suitable for restraint in a vehicle.  If any additional leads, harnesses or collars are required during their stay, you agree, upon presentation of a receipt, to refund your home carer.

  4. You agree that if you instruct TLC Dog Walking to exercise your dog off the lead you accept full liability for any loss or damage caused because of your dog being off the lead. If your dog attacks a person or a dog or if they are involved in a fight with another dog/person causing any damage or injury you agree to be responsible for any losses incurred including payment of veterinary fees or any medical treatment required.

  6. Reasonable efforts will be made to contact you in the event of an emergency. However, TLC Dog Walking reserves the right to make decisions regarding your dog's health provided it is always acting in the best interests of the dog and on the advice of a veterinary surgeon. If your dog becomes unwell, has an accident, or injures himself/herself or seems to be in any type of pain, we might need to take him/her to a veterinary surgeon, and you agree to be responsible for payment of all the veterinary fees incurred.

  7. You undertake to make full disclosure of any quality or characteristic which might make your dog not suitable for home boarding, including, but not limited to behavioural or health problems, anti-social behaviour including aggression, incontinence/lack of house-training or excessive loud barking/whining. Failure on your part to disclose any matter which might render the dog unsuitable for home boarding will be deemed a material omission amounting to a fundamental breach of this agreement. You will also be liable for additional costs if TLC Dog Walking experiences difficulties due to failure to disclose in the booking form any matter that would be accepted as reasonably unsuitable for home boarding.
