  7. Fetch Pets London offers group walking in which 4 or more dogs will co-mingle. The client accepts that during the course of normal dog play their dog may sustain injuries. All dog play is carefully monitored to avoid injury but scratches, punctures, torn ligaments, or other injuries may occur despite the best supervision.

  11. The client must provide Fetch Pets London with a name and contact telephone number of a person capable of making a decision relating to their dog in an emergency if the client cannot be contacted. A nominated vet’s details will also be recorded and they will be contacted if we are unable to communicate with the owner or their representative.  With the nominated veterinary surgeons advice Fetch Pets London reserves the right to make a decision which is within the best interests of the animal if the situation is an emergency.
