No Use of Electric, Pinch, or Choke Collars:

Inclement Weather:

To ensure that the safety of our caregivers is not compromised, we reserve the right to cancel services, or adjust our service schedule if, due to inclement weather, operating conditions are unsafe or pose significant challenges to our ability to come to your home.

If poor weather conditions persist, you will be notified by email of service cancellations or schedule adjustments.

We ask that you provide us with emergency contact information for a neighbor with access to your home, and who can give your pet a potty break in the event that we cannot provide service during inclement weather. We will attempt to make arrangements for your pet with your emergency contact. You will not be charged if Doggy’s Delight, LLC cancels service due to inclement weather.

If we are able to come to your home, your dog will receive a potty break. However, in poor weather conditions, our playtime and exercise with your pet may be in your home instead of outside.
