We aim to arrive at your home at the agreed time of your walk/visit but due to the nature of the business we cannot always guarantee this so please leave a 1 and a half hour window either side of your agreed time slot for us to complete your visit. If we cannot achieve this due to an emergency we will ensure your dog is provided with suitable arrangements (ie x2 smaller visits or provide a shorter visit and reimburse you for this time on another day). This is done to ensure that all the animals under our care receive the best quality care at the time they need this.
