Particularly, I understand that even if my dog is vaccinated for Bordetella (commonly known as kennel cough or an upper respiratory infection) there is a chance that my dog can still contract it. I agree that Dog Ranch, Nicole Curran, Inc. and/or any of its clients will not be responsible if my dog becomes ill, including if my dog contracts kennel cough. In the case a dog shows symptoms of any illness Dog Ranch will do its best to immediately contact dog owners with upcoming bookings and/or stays to address any concerns.

Terms and Conditions
For the purpose of this agreement the dog sitting service and/or their representatives (Independent Contractor, or employees) will be referred to as PET SITTER and the pet owner will be referred to as OWNER. The parties herein agree to the following terms and conditions below. 1. 100% of the total charge of the PET SIT, daycare, or assessment is due at the time of arrival from the OWNER. Earlier departure times scheduled, affecting daily fee, will result in a credit for future pet-sits. There are no refunds issued. This includes unused time on a daycare pass. 2. Refund/Cancellation Policy – If OWNER plans to shorten/lengthen their trip while away PET SITTER requests an immediate notice. Arrival/departure times must be communicated accurately. Changes in departure times resulting in additional daily fees must be paid immediately at pick-up. Credit will be given for future PET SIT for OWNERS who shorten their trip. If trip is cancelled entirely PET SITTER requests an immediate notice of the cancellation. If trip requires a deposit (holidays), and trip is cancelled, deposit is forfeited. 3. If OWNER plans to lengthen their trip they must contact PET SITTER immediately to be fit into PET SITTER schedule. There is no guarantee that trips can be lengthened at a moments notice due to the strict intake volume of PET SITTER. OWNER agrees to pay all additional fees incurred promptly upon return for PET SITS that can be lengthened. 4. PET SIT rates are on a per day basis. Cash or check are the only accepted methods of payment at this time. 5. OWNER understands that while dog is with PET SITTER he or she will come in contact with other dogs. Every effort will be made to ensure safety and good social behavior. Each dog has successfully completed an assessment and is in good health. Dogs may be separated based upon neutral and social temperaments. PET SITTER will take into account extreme size differences and social manners. OWNERS understand that dogs requiring specific grooming maintenance are recommended to make arrangements with their groomer as PET SITTER can provide ‘maintenance’ brushing for an additional fee but is not responsible for excessive de-matting or grooming due to regularly scheduled outdoor play with other dogs or weather affecting dog(s) fur. Increased activity levels in an outdoor environment may cause an increase in matting. 6. OWNER understands that if dogs exhibit signs of stress it may alter dog(s) eating habits, bowel movement, and behavior. In such a case OWNER may need to adjust food intake after dog departs from PET SITTER. In the case of extreme anxiety or stress OWNER will be contacted to discuss alternative arrangements. 7.

If possible OWNER will make arrangements to have any service necessary during their absence by leaving their credit card number on file. 9.

In the unlikely event of illness, or personal emergency to PET SITTER, OWNER will authorize PET SITTER to arrange for another qualified person to fulfill responsibilities as set forth in this agreement.

If OWNER cannot be reached or immediate action is necessary for health, safety, and welfare of the dog(s), OWNER authorizes PET SITTER to make any repairs deemed necessary. The OWNER agrees to reimburse PET SITTER for all expenses incurred for repair of the property cause by the OWNERS dog(s). 15.
