Terms & Conditions


TERMS & CONDITIONS (“the contract”)


    • 1. By a) enrolling a dog with or b) permitting a dog to attend or c) accepting the Services of March of the K9’s and its staff, the Client is deemed to have accepted these Terms and Conditions.
    • 2. March of the K9’s may act in the Client’s absence as guardian of their dog and may perform or take any action which they deem necessary in order to protect and keep in good health the Client’s dog.
    • 3. March of the K9’s requires one month’s notice of cancellation. The Client agrees to provide such notice or pay the amount that would be due during this notice period. The Client may cancel with notice at any time; there is no minimum term of contract.
    • 4. For boarding bookings, where 30 days or more notice is provided there is no charge. Where than less that 30 days notice but more than 7 days notice is given, 50% of the fee is chargeable to cover administrative and management costs as well as to cover the loss of business. Where less than 7 days’ notice is provided 100% of the fee is chargeable on the same basis.
    • 5. March of the K9’s operates a fixed monthly fee system, whereby the Client pays a fixed monthly fee for a place at the day care centre on agreed regular day/s per week. March of the K9’s factors into the monthly fee 2 weeks of ‘holiday allowance’ over a 12 month period. Therefore, if the Client’s does not send their dog for any reason, for example due to holiday or sickness, the monthly fee for the agreed regular days is still payable in full. The Client may not swap or add days in lieu if their dog does not attend.
    • 6. The Client may not swap their agreed regular days on an ad hoc basis. It may be possible to add occasional extra days as required, provided there is space in the van. Requests to do so should be made by email. These additional days will be added to the Client’s monthly invoice at the “Additional Day” daily rate agreed between March of the K9’s and the Client.
    • 6.1
      • a. Full payment for services (agreed either at time of booking or subsequently) is to be made within 7 days of receipt of invoice or, by the date specified on the invoice. Time for payment shall be of the essence of the Contract. The preferred method of payment is collection by Direct Debit. Bank transfer, cheque or cash is also accepted, however March of the K9’s may add an administration fee of 2.5% to invoices not collected by Direct Debit. If the Client fails to make any payment due to March of the K9’s under the Contract by the due date for payment, then the Client shall pay interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 8% per cent per annum above Barclay Bank Plc’s base rate from time to time. Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgement. The Client shall pay the interest together with the overdue amount plus any and all additional administrative, debt collection costs and legal fees incurred.
      • b. The Client shall pay all amounts due under the Contract in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (except for any deduction or withholding required by law).
