Terms and Conditions

Usage

 By booking a time slot all clients using the Puppy Paddocks agree to the following terms and conditions:


No more than 4 dogs are to be exercised within the allotted time without agreement from the proprietor*.  The correct option MUST be chosen on the booking form.


Family/friends are welcome to share the timeslot but each user must have

 provided vaccination cards for all visiting dogs.   Users must NOT invite friends/family to join them if vaccination records have not been provided.


The hirer/user* agrees to not enter the paddocks before their timeslot begins and to leave the premises within their timeslot^.


All dogs visiting the paddocks must be vaccinated/wormed to ensure the protection of others using the paddock. We do require a copy of each dog(s) vaccination card before your first visit.


It is the hirer/user responsibility to check they have received a confirmation email and that they have booked the correct day and times.


Hirer/User Own Risk

Whether using the paddocks exclusively or whilst attending a group event:


It is the responsibility of the hirer/user to ensure that the paddocks are suitable before letting their dog off-lead. The  proprietors  accept no liability for escaped dogs.  All dogs should be insured under their owner's public liability insurance.


The use of the paddock areas, parking or whilst on the premises adjacent to Puppy Paddocks is entirely at the hirer/user's own risk (whether the hirer or any other persons connected with the booking).  Dogs must be kept on a lead whist moving between the vehicle and the paddocks.


The  proprietors of these premises accept NO liability for any damage to property or injury to, or the death of, any person or dog using the paddocks.


The  proprietors  accept no liability for any damages, losses, claims, actions, costs/expenses or other liability incurred by the hirer/user when using the paddocks whether using the paddocks exclusively or whilst attending a group event.

We specifically ask that you are aware of holes dug by the dogs when in the paddocks. 

Possession

The hirer agrees that the proprietors maintain control and possession of the Puppy Paddocks and equipment at all times. The hire of the paddock does not constitute any rights over any of the land.


All and any equipment belongs to the proprietors  and must not be removed from the paddock by the hirer/user.


The hire is for the field only. Enrichment equipment may be added or removed without notice.


The gate code will be changed regularly. The code will be sent in the two reminder emails, one 2 hours and one 15 minutes before the booking starts.


The proprietors reserve the right to ask any user to leave the paddocks at anytime for any reason.


The user agrees they will NOT leave ANY dog unattended in the main paddocks. If bringing multiple dogs or needing to return to your vehicle during the visit, your dog(s) must be supervised by another adult or shut in the holding pen.

Payment

No booking will be valid without payment unless agreed by the proprietors.


The correct payment must be selected on the booking form. 


Payment of the full fee is required when booking and is non-refundable unless the hire is cancelled within 24 hours of the hire time.  


Payment to be made by Stripe, please reference Puppy Paddock/time/day. 

Payment by BACS or cash on the day only by agreement of the proprietors.

Safety for you and others

The hirer/user agrees to ensure the paddock and surrounding areas are left in a clean and tidy condition by agreeing to clear up after their dog/s and themselves by placing deposits and litter in a bin provided or taking by it home. 


BBQ's and fires are NOT permitted on the paddock, please ensure cigarettes are completely extinguished and put in the bin.


Please do not alter any aspect of the paddock.

Do not climb the fences or gates, remove or cause damage to any fence, gate, seating or equipment (or allow others to). Inform the proprietors immediately if any accidental damage occurs.


The hirer/user agrees not to enter the field with or without their dog/s whilst the field is occupied by any other persons unless permission is given by that person. If  the paddock is occupied during your timeslot, please check your booking time and call at the bungalow for assistance. DO NOT open the gate and enter the paddock-there may be a reactive dog present.

 

^WE ASK YOU RESPECT YOUR TIMESLOT AND DO NOT ENTER THE PADDOCK BEFORE YOUR TIME AS WE MAY HAVE OUR GATE INTO THE PADDOCK OPEN TO RUN OUR DOG OR DO MAINTENANCE.   

The Sheep Field and The Runway

If you are unable or unwilling to walk to the bottom or far sides of these areas to clear up after your dog(s), either toys or poo, please DO NOT let your dog(s) through the gate into the Sheep Field.  


Users must stay with their dog(s) at all  times they are in the Sheep Field or Runway. Please do not sit in the small paddock and leave them alone (even if you can see them from the bench).  


Do not damage, or allow your dogs or other people with you to damage, any of the trees, shrubs, seating, tyres or shelter in either the Sheep Field or Runway.


Users agree to keep these areas clean and tidy by picking up all poo and litter and placing it in the bins provided.

FINALLY:

Children MUST be supervised whilst in the paddock. Please do not let them climb on any fence, gate or seating. Responsibility for any child remains entirely with the hirer/user. Please remember this is a dog exercise paddock NOT a children's playground.


Please ensure the gate is securely closed when you leave. 


If you do encounter a problem, please call 01603757968 or call at the bungalow.
