  5. Mucky Muzzles offer services where dogs are walked in groups and the client accepts that during the course of normal dog play their dog may sustain injuries.

The client is responsible for the full cost of treatment of any injuries or illness that their dog receives whilst under the care of Mucky Muzzles, together with any associated costs e.g. call-out charges. The client authorises the staff of Mucky Muzzles to seek such 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 the staff of Mucky Muzzles 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 the proprietor.
     

  7. Mucky Muzzles will only let dogs off the lead once a consent form has been signed, and henceforth will remain at the discretion of Mucky Muzzles

  11. The client agrees to provide keys/arrange access to the dog for the agreed appointment; failure to do so will result in a cancellation for that day’s service and Mucky Muzzles will be paid in full by the client.

  14. The Client may cancel their booked slot and, provided they give a minimum of 24-hours notice, they will not be charged. However, if cancellation is made within 24-hours of the walk commencing, the full rate will be charged.
