  • The correct disposal in the bins provided of any dog waste produced
  • Informing the host if the dog urinates, defecates or causes any damage or incident while inside the premises
  • The behaviour of my dog whilst on the premises
  • Complying with all applicable legislation relating to the care and welfare of the dog, including the Countryside Code
  • Removing excess mud / water from the dog before entering the premises
  • Providing my own towels for use when cleaning the dog, some are provided but you may need more
