For Emergency Medical Situations Involving a Customer’s Dog:
Customers should ensure that the Sitter is provided with contact information to reach the Customer in the event an emergency medical situation arises involving a Customer’s Dog. Customers and Walkers/Sitters acknowledge and agree that, to the extent any situation arises where the Customer’s Dog is required to receive emergency veterinary care while in the care or custody of the Sitter, the Sitter shall make reasonable efforts to contact the Customer and notify him or her of the situation. In the event the Sitter notifies SityWalks of the situation, the Sitter should contact SityWalks at our customer support number and SityWalks shall make reasonable efforts to contact the Customer to notify them of the situation. If Customer cannot be reached following reasonable efforts, Customer authorizes Sitter and SityWalks to authorize care on his/her behalf in order to promptly treat customer’s dog. Customers acknowledge and agree that the costs of any such treatment for emergency medical situations is the sole and exclusive responsibility of the Customer and that Customer’s credit card may be billed for any amount to reimburse costs incurred by the Sitter or SityWalks attendant thereto. In certain circumstances, Customer may seek reimbursements of these costs or a portion thereof through coverage included under SityWalks’s Insurance Coverage policies. The determination of what constitutes an emergency medical situation in relation to such coverage is at the sole and exclusive discretion of our insurance Underwriters. Any Excess will be covered by the customer.
In order to qualify for Insurance Coverage, Customers must comply strictly with any requirements set forth in the Terms, as well as the following: (1) booking their dog’s stay through the Site; (2) notifying SityWalks via email of the injury during the dog’s stay or within 48 hours of the injury; and (3) submitting written documentation from a veterinarian in good standing of the costs and demonstrating that they were incurred due to a new injury and not illness or pre-existing injury (4) pay £12 booking fee. SityWalks may also request additional veterinarian records for the Customer’s dog in order to validate any claims. This Insurance Protection is void in any jurisdiction where prohibited. SityWalks shall, in the exercise of its good faith discretion, determine whether the Customer has satisfied the requirements set forth in the Terms and are entitled to reimbursement of requested amounts. To the extent the Customer’s existing pet or other insurance covers the applicable injury to a dog, this Insurance Protection will only apply if the Customer seeks reimbursement under such policy and their reimbursement is denied or does not cover all of their out of pocket costs. SityWalks may request any documentation regarding insurance claims made by the Customer’s insurance provider. This Insurance Protection is offered automatically without additional consideration to qualifying transactions, and does not convey any additional rights or claims to Customers. This Insurance Protection does not absolve Walkers/Sitters of any liability or create any rights or claims of any nature for Walkers/Sitters against SityWalks. Walkers/Sitters agree they are not a third-party beneficiary of Insurance Protection and they have no right to assert any contribution, offset, or indemnification from SityWalks with respect to any liability of the Sitter for injury to a dog, other property or persons. Consecuential Damages (non direct) are not guaranteed.
For Flea Situations Involving a Customer’s Dog:
Customers acknowledge and agree that, to the extent any situation arises where the Customer’s Dog introduces fleas into a Sitter’s home, the Customer’s credit card may be billed for any amount to reimburse costs incurred attendant thereto. These costs may include, but are not limited to, costs associated with treating a Sitter’s resident animals and/or home for fleas or flea prevention. It is the responsibility of all Customers to disclose any knowledge of flea issues associated with their pets to all Walkers/Sitters before any Service is rendered.
Home dog boarding or sitting is not appropriate for all dogs, especially aggressive poorly socialized dogs.
You acknowledge that it is your sole responsibility, as a Site Customer, to determine if home dog boarding and walking is best for your dog. While certain Walkers/Sitters may receive positive assessments or comments by the Site or its users, SityWalks makes no representations or warranties regarding the quality, security or positive features of the Sitter or the Sitter’s residence. SityWalks is not party to any agreement or transaction between Customer and Walkers/Sitters and, as such, cannot verify or otherwise authenticate any claims made by the Sitter (including any medical certifications or insurance coverage held by the Sitter). Moreover, it is incumbent upon you to share any and all relevant information, including but not limited to medical issues, allergies or other conditions, about your dog prior to engaging the Sitter for dog boarding or other dog-care related services. As a Customer, you acknowledge and agree that the entire risk arising out of your use of the Site, including listing and booking Services, is entirely your own. You acknowledge and agree that SityWalks is not liable for any damages associate with the administration of dog boarding or other dog services, which may include but are not limited to, bodily injury or death to your dog (whether caused by the Sitter, any family customer, friend, dog or other affiliate of the Sitter or any other third party). It is the sole responsibility of Customers to make decisions that are in the best interests of themselves and their pets.

(b) No Refund given if cancelled less than 24 hours before booking is due to commence. No refund, except where determined by SityWalks in unusual circumstances. Customer agrees to be bound by the option selected by Sitter and agreed to as part of the booking process. After a first-time booking between Customer and Sitter, Customer and Sitter may, at their own discretion, arrange for a live meeting to introduce the Customer’s dog to the Walkers/Sitters place and pets. If the result of this meeting is the determination that a dog boarding stay would not be in the best interests of the pets, either party may cancel the booking and all money will be refunded to Booking Customer, less SityWalks’s Booking and Service Fee.
