Mutt Movers is authorised to seek emergency veterinary care with release from all liabilities related to transportation, treatment and expense. Should specified veterinarian be unavailable, we are authorised to engage the services of an alternative veterinarian. If you cannot be contacted in a timely manner, we are authorised to approve medical and/or emergency treatment (excluding euthanasia) as recommended by a veterinarian.
You agree to reimburse us for expenses incurred, plus any additional fees for attending to such emergency. We are not liable for any problems that occur from a known condition unless we have not treated the condition as required.
All dogs, by law, must wear a collar and tag with your information as well as being microchipped. All dogs must be fully up to date with their vaccinations and their flea and work treatment to come into our care. If dogs show signs of flea or worm infestation they will not be walked. These must be completed 2 weeks before care commences. Titre testing will be an acceptable form of vaccination along with certificate and letter from vet. Kennel cough is highly advised by us and the vets.
Male dogs over the age of 9 months must be neutered. Male un-neutered dogs under 9 months will be temperament tested and closely watched whilst in day care by trained staff members. They will not be allowed to mount/mock, mate or show any boisterous or aggressive behaviour. If they do, care will not be able to be continued and you will be informed immediately.
Dogs will all be mixed together in groups of up to 6. This will be a mix of different ages and genders. All dogs will be made comfortable and not put in groups that will upset them. You must inform us fully of any characteristics of your dog/s which needs to be known for handling and care of them, especially any aggression issues.
Dogs will be kept on a lead whenever off premises, unless consent is received from you.
We will care, so far as is practicable, that your dog/s are not a nuisance or danger to anyone, or any other animals, and that no harm comes to it/them.
Your dog/s will be left for no longer than 3 hours across the day.
If dogs are not collected within 7 days of the stated departure date, and no communication has been received from you, then we will contact the RSPCA to classify the dog/s as abandoned for them to attempt to re-home, sell or send to a charitable animal organisation.
We will put collars and tags on you dog/s stating that they are under the care of Mutt Movers for safety reasons.
Photos/videos of your dog can be taken and used on social media, advertisements, website etc.
We will visit your pet/s AM and PM unless otherwise organised with you.
Morning visits start from 8.00am-10.00am and evening visits start from 6.00pm-7.00pm for a minimum of 15 minutes. Food, medication, bedding, toys and other pet essentials will be left for us. If in the event that these run out, we will purchase and leave at your home with a receipt for reimbursement.
A key should be left with us or a code for your key safe. We will use the key to visit your pet/s and for no other purpose. We will keep you key safe, not let anyone not employed by us have it, not copy it and will return it to you on demand.
