Description of the Pet Services
by Dog Walking we mean the advertiser will come and pick your
dog up from your home and take him/her for a walk. The length
and cost of the walk will vary between walkers.
Important Info! It has been suggested to me that one of the dog walkers who advertise on this site has given out the keys to her clients house to acquaintances, in order for them to walk the dog instead, without clearing this with the dog owner first. This is NOT common practice with dog walkers, but since this can occur, please make sure that you discuss these details with your dog walker before booking them - WHO will walk your dog, WHAT will happen if the dog walker is unable to make it one day (will he/she send someone else in his/her place and if so, is this acceptable to you?), HOW will they walk you dog (with other dogs or on their own, on lead or off lead) and WHERE will your dog be walked.
by Dog Sitting (also called dog boarding
or home boarding by some advertisers) we mean the

him as part of their family, while you are away. The cost of
the dog sitting, the amount of dogs that are accepted, the
size/age/sex of dogs that are accepted, will vary between dog
