Health and Vaccination
All dogs and puppies must be suitably vaccinated against potential risk of disease, as well as being treated for internal and external parasites. There can be no guarantee that there is no risk of disease at any venue or when in contact with other dogs and equipment (such as toys). It is the owners/handler’s responsibility to ensure their dog is fully protected against the risk of disease. If the owner chooses not to routinely vaccinate their dog this is their choice and the decision is made at their own risk.
Please advise in advance of any session if your dog has been unwell or if they have been in contact with another dog infected with a contagious disease. Depending on the issue, it may be advisable for the session to be cancelled or re-arranged. It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure their dog is fit and healthy for the session.
If your dog has any know allergies or food intolerances, please make me aware before the session and provide your own appropriate food.
If your dog comes into season, please let me know ahead of the session so we can make adequate plans ahead of time.
