The terms and conditions set out an agreement between ‘you’ the owner and the handy pet services.
We home board up to two dog's at one time depending on size. Unfortunately we cant take dog's bigger than a Labrador due to having children. Large dogs must not jump up and be of a calm nature.

paid on the start date of your dog’s booking.

All dogs must be up to date and vaccinated against Parvovirus, Hepatitis, leptospirosis, Kennel Cough and Distemper.

our home and other dogs.

If your dog causes damage to our home, you agree to reimburse the cost incurred in the event.
All owners must be completely honest when telling us about their dog’s behaviour, failure to do so can result in early termination to your dog’s stay with us. You will be responsible for collecting your dog or finding alternative care. No refund will be provided.
You should supply enough food for the duration of your dog’s stay. If they do run out you agree to reimburse the cost of purchasing more food.
If you decide to collect your dog before the confirmed end date of their stay you will not receive a refund for the remainder of the days.
We use all our care and attention to ensure the happiness, safety and welfare of your dog. If however your dog becomes unwell or has an accident we will take them to their own veterinary surgery (details must be provided on booking form). If this is not possible we will take them to an alternative veterinary surgery. You agree to be responsible for the payment incurred, either by payment direct to the veterinary surgery over the phone or to handy pet services upon your return.
We love for your dogs to be able to run freely in a secure area on a walk so they can explore all the different smells and get plenty of exercise. If you would like your dog to be exercised off the lead when it is safe to do so, you must give consent on your records form.
