These breeds are listed on the Dangerous Dogs Act and as such are unable to be Home Boarded.
B. We cannot accept any dogs that are aggressive to either people (Adult or Children) or other animals. If any aggression towards us or any physical harm is caused to us by aggressive behaviour during the dogs stay alternative arrangement will be made for your dog(s) to be looked after elsewhere. We will contact yourselves firstly, if you are not contactable we will then contact the emergency number provided to us by yourself or, if none is given your dog(s) will be re-boarded/ Kennelled at our discretion. Any costs incurred are to be paid by yourself. Any money paid to Noah’s Ark Dog Sitters in this instance would not be refunded.

D. We are unable to accept any dogs that are not vaccinated or up to date with their vaccinations (Vaccination’s are needed to be up to date at least 3 weeks prior to your dogs stay). Original copies of vaccination certificate/booklet needs to be given before home boarding can commence and a copy will be taken. We also need proof of microchip number(s).
E. All dogs must be wormed and flead. If, during your dogs stay they are found to have worms, fleas or any other parasite we will take veterinary advice and treat the condition without delay. Any cost for this treatment is to be paid by the customer upon collection of their dog(s).
F. We do not accept any dogs under the age of 18 months old.
G. Due to conditions of our Licence with Barnsley Council, we cannot allow dogs to sleep in our bedrooms, all dogs must sleep downstairs in either our Kitchen or Living room. We therefore cannot accept any dogs that would normally sleep in the bed or bedroom with their owner.

If no appointment is made, your penciled in booking will be removed. Once a date has been agreed, your booking will remain until your visit where it can be confirmed or cancelled by either party.
B. Upon a successful visit to us (see 3.C.) a booking can be confirmed with a 25% none refundable deposit (see above) and the completion of our booking forms.
