When someone's precious pet is placed in a stranger's care ( that's me...until we get to know each other ) and it would be unethical not to have the correct legal cover to protect that pet and the members of the public with which it will come in contact. My policy is very comprehensive. A key feature (excuse the pun) is special cover clients' house keys. Keys are identified by dog name and no client address details appear on the key fob. I will most likely need a key to enter your property to either collect and/or drop off your dog or in the case of small pets, to provide them with care as instructed. The policy covers the loss of the key and replacement locks in the unlikely event that a problem occurs.
The convictions check which used to known as a CRB is now called a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check. It is used by employers to assist them in making recruitment decisions and to prevent unsuitable people from coming in contact with vulnerable clients. Ideally, a DBS is only required where someone will be working with children and vulnerable adults. In the Pet Care industry, it is used to give clients some peace of mind when they are allowing someone new into their home to look after their pets.
Be assured that I do not share any of my clients' details with any marketing, advertising or another outside source. Should the time come when we part company, any personal information will be destroyed.
