We may request that you pay us a deposit of £30 for Services for dogs, or £50 for Services for cats, or any other amount we may request (Deposit), in order to confirm your booking. Once both Parties agree on the date and time for the Services, and the Deposit has been paid (if requested by us), a booking will be made (Booking), and we will send you confirmation of your Booking time.
Each subsequent Booking made by you is subject to, and will be governed by, these Terms and any other conditions agreed to by the Parties.

What you need to bring
When arriving to your Booking, please ensure that you bring your pet, and:
For cats – your pet’s cage; and
For dogs – your pet’s collar or harness, and leash.
Drop-off and Pick-up
For each Booking, you agree to the following:
Drop-off time: You agree that you will drop-off your pet at our salon for your Booking at the time communicated by us to you, otherwise at least 5 minutes before the scheduled start time of your Booking.
Pick-up time: We will endeavour to inform you of the estimated completion time for the Services at the time you drop-off your pet. You agree that you (or an authorised person noted on your Booking, or otherwise communicated to us) will pick-up your pet from our salon within 30 minutes of the end time communicated by us to you. Please note we are a pet grooming salon, and not a daycare service.
Late fees: You agree that if you are late to drop-off your pet, we may not be able to perform the Services, and you will not be entitled to a refund of the Deposit for the Booking. Where you are more than 30 minutes late to pick-up your pet, we will be entitled to charge you, and you agree to pay us, an additional fee for the late pick-up time at a rate of £20 per hour or part thereof (Late Fee). Such Late Fee is due and payable at the time of pick-up and should be paid directly to us.
In consideration of your payment of the Price, we will provide the services confirmed with you when you made the Booking (Services) in accordance with these Terms and all applicable laws, whether ourselves or through our personnel. We warrant to you that the Services will be provided using reasonable care and skill. We will not be responsible for any Services unless we have expressly agreed to provide it.
By making a Booking, you acknowledge and agree that:
• your pet is fit and well, with no known health issues that you have not communicated to us (including dental decay where we are performing teeth cleaning services);
• you are happy for us to take before and after photos of your pet, which will be available on our website, social media, and in-store. Please let us know if you would not like us to photograph your pet;
• we will stop providing the Services if your pet is unhappy or aggressive, and reserve the right to charge you for the full price of the Services;
• we are entitled to restrain your pet (including by using a muzzle) if your pet poses any risk to the health and safety of our staff, customers or other pets in our salon. Where your dog is aggressive, we are entitled to add an additional charge to the Price;
• we will endeavour to comply with any requests you may have regarding the appearance and style of your pet’s grooming, however it may not be possible to cater for this, and we are not liable to you if you are unhappy with the appearance of your pet following the Services;
• you will inform us before the Booking of any injuries, health conditions, allergies or dietary requirements of your pet; and
• we are not obliged to, but may, provide treats to your pet to reward their good behaviour! You agree to let us know if your pet has any dietary requirements or allergies before the Booking begins.
Treatment of Matted Coats
We are committed to the welfare of your pet. If we discover that your pet’s coat has matts which are too severe/ tight to brush out without causing stress or discomfort to your pet, you agree that we are entitled to clip your pet’s hair short in order to get underneath the knots and matts. You acknowledge and agree that when your pet has short hair, we may discover skin conditions or parasites that went previously undetected because of the dense matting (for example, dryness, red patches, fleas). Your pet’s behaviour after being clipped may also lead to irritation including scratching, licking or head shaking. We are not liable to you for the condition of your pet’s skin, any complications or health conditions discovered by clipping and removing your pet’s hair, or any clipper irritation caused to your pet from the removal of matted coats.
Due to the additional time and care involved with the removal of matting to your pet, you acknowledge and agree that where we are required to remove matting as part of the Services, there will be an additional fee added to the Price.
Please talk to us about how to avoid any complications with matted coats in the future.
By booking your pet in for a teeth cleaning service, you acknowledge and agree that:
• we will perform the Services using equipment including an ultrasonic tooth brush, tooth paste, and hand tools;
• we are performing a teeth cleaning service and not a dental treatment (which a vet would provide);
• the teeth cleaning service may uncover issues which require an appointment with a vet, however we are not able to diagnose any medical issues;
• some redness of the gums and minor bleeding is to be expected;
• we will stop the Booking if your pet is unhappy or aggressive;
• if your pet has a tooth loose, your pet’s tooth may fall out while performing the Services; and
• the teeth cleaning service may require more than one treatment to address all cleaning.
Your pet can eat and drink normally before and after the teeth cleaning services are performed.

• cease providing the Services, and recover, as a debt due and immediately payable from you, our additional costs of doing so (including reasonable legal fees, debt collector fees and mercantile agent fees); and/or
• charge interest at a rate equal to 4% above the Bank of England's base rate, from time to time, but at 4% a year for any period when that base rate is below 0%, per annum, calculated and compounding monthly, on any such amounts unpaid after the due date.
