The Client must hold an insurance policy which will indemnify the Client and/or AWDW jointly and severally in respect of liability for the actions of the dog. AWDW’s Public Liability insurance does not cover the Clients liability. AWDW may refuse or terminate Services for a Client which is not so insured by either a specific pet or home insurance policy.
AWDW will not accept liability for any loss, injury or death of any animal either inside or away from the Clients household whilst in our care. Any such matter, howsoever occurring, will be referred to AWDW’s insurers.

Variations to this cancellation policy are at the discretion of AWDW and will not be based upon any precedent.
AWDW reserve the right to cancel the agreement at any time.
