Panda Pet Services Terms & Conditions

These are the terms & conditions of Panda Pet Services. Once the pet owner has employed our services, they will be deemed to have accepted these terms & conditions*

 

Dog Walking

  • Dogs are transported to the Enfield parks in your dog walker's secure vehicle

 

  • For safety, we usually walk dogs off lead in small groups of no more than 4 dogs at one time

  • On lead walks may be available on request

  • Dog walks are 40/60 minutes

  • We reserve the right to use leads & training resources if appropriate on the group walks.  Puppies will always be walked on long leads (owner will be notified as such) until it is considered that recall has been learned.

Bookings & Time Slots
Please message directly to Pandapetservices via Whatsapp all bookings, amendments or cancellations.  Advance regular time slot bookings are always preferred but no later than the Sunday prior to the week of your booking(s).

There are 3 morning time slots available for dog walks. 7.45am, 10am, 11.30am. We usually require a 30 minute window either side of collection times due to traffic & other variables.

 

Whilst we will do our best to collect your dog at your preferred time slot, pick up times can be subject to change & could vary from day to day.

Please note the following:

  • The owner must ensure the dog is up-to-date with their vaccinations, flea and tick treatments & de-wormer treatments.

  • And 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.

  • 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.

  • For safety reasons, we do not walk dogs at any time when it is dark outdoors. 

  • We do not offer a daycare service.

Additional

We make every effort to contact the owner in the event of an emergency & recommend owners provide us with a contact number of a trusted third party. However, 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. 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.

In the case of adverse weather conditions, e.g. extreme heat, very heavy rain, strong winds, ice, snow the dog will be given a shorter walk or walks may be cancelled. 

All dogs are accepted at their owners' risk.  While every possible care & attention is given to each pet, we cannot be held responsible for any injury, illness, loss or damage, howsoever arising.

Dog Walking Cancellation policy

As all our dog walks are scheduled, please endeavour to contact us no later than the day before the booked walk with any changes/cancellations otherwise charges may be incurred.

 

If your dog is a 'no show' on pick up, without prior notification to us, the full price of the walk will be charged.
