Terms and Conditions
A. DogsB&B engages for dog Owners persons known as Minders to supply dog minding services.
B. In consideration of DogsB&B agreeing to obtain an approved Minder for the Owner, the Owner has agreed to enter into this agreement.

This payment must be received within 10 days of providing the name of the Minder to the Owner or within 24hours of meeting the Minder (whichever is sooner). Bookings are only confirmed by DogsB&B once we receive your full deposit.
b) The balance of the fees is payable to DogsB&B prior to delivering the dog/s to the Minder, according to the schedule as set out in the terms and conditions published on the DogsB&B website.
c) If monies are not received by the dates specified, then DogsB&B reserves the right to reallocate the minder to other bookings.

3. Owner Responsibilities
a) The Owner must make appropriate arrangements with the Minder for the supply of food, bedding, toys and any medication.

d) The Owner must ensure that their dog/s are fully vaccinated, wormed and covered for flea control.
4. Veterinary & Safety
a) The Owner must also pay any veterinary or other expenses incurred by the Minder incurred relating to the dog minding services. If the Owner nominated veterinarian specified (if any) is not available or if the time required to obtain such services would endanger the dog or is impractical, the Minder may use such other service as may be available and considered appropriate.
b) The Owner accepts the Minders or DogsB&B’s decision on the need for and selection of a veterinarian. The Owner must not make any claim or take action over any veterinary decision.

b) The Owner acknowledges that DogsB&B and the Minder have and will take every precaution possible, compatible with a home environment, to ensure the safety and health of their dog. However should some circumstance arise that results in the loss or injury of that dog, neither DogsB&B nor the Minder can be held responsible, no matter how caused.
c) DogsB&B will not be liable to the Owner for any loss or damage where DogsB&B has failed to provide service or has cancelled the Owners booking.
