Panda Pet Services Terms & Conditions
The following terms and conditions are in place to illustrate the way in which our business provides pet services to our customers. Once the pet owner has employed our services, they will be deemed to have accepted these terms & conditions.
Dogs are transported to the Enfield parks in our secure vehicle. Whilst we will endeavour to collect your dog at your preferred time, pick up times are subject to change & may vary from day to day. Dog walking consists of a 30/60 minute walk, but in the case of extreme weather conditions, e.g. very heavy rain or snow, or pet injury/ illness, or on owner request, the dog will be given a shorter walk or time in the garden/outside for a toilet break.
The owner must ensure that the dog is up-to-date with their vaccinations, flea and tick treatments & de-wormer treatments.
Panda Pet Services usually walks dogs off lead in small groups of no more than 4 dogs at one time. We reserve the right to use leads and training leads if appropriate on the group walks. Puppies will always be walked on long leads until such time as recall is learned.
We incorporate training into the dog walks for safety and general obedience and will use training aids if necessary.
The owner is to make full disclosure of any characteristic or issue which might make the dog unsuitable to the group; including behavioural or health problems, antisocial behaviour; including any form of aggression, excessive loud barking or whining.
We make every effort to contact the owner in the event of an emergency & we recommend owners provide us with a contact number of a trusted third party. However, in an emergency situation, we reserve the right to make decisions regarding the dog’s health provided it is at all times acting in the best interests of the dog and on the advice of a veterinary surgeon. If veterinary assistance is required, we will take your pet to your nominated vet & the owner is responsible for payment of any veterinary fees incurred.
Every consideration is given to the safety of each dog on the group walks; please note the following:
Male dogs over the age of 9 months must be neutered.
No female dogs who come into season for the duration (2–3 weeks) will be walked.
Please contact us and endeavour to provide 24 hours notice for any cancellations or changes.
121 Puppy & Dog Training & Behaviour Modification
Faith is an ethical dog trainer using positive reinforcement training techniques and no forms of punishment are ever used. Aftercare and continued support is always provided to our customers.
Puppy visits are 30 minutes. On arrival, we will take your puppy outdoors or to their pad for a toilet break. We will spend time, playing and training with your puppy for stimulation and put food down before leaving in their pen or crate.
Cat care visits are up to 20 minutes. They include feeding, setting timers, changing water, litter tray cleaning, cuddle your cat (if they like!), dispose of rubbish, pick up post & keeping a general eye on things while you are away.
