Acceptance and Contract: Our acceptance of your booking happens when we send you a booking confirmation by email, post or call you to confirm your booking, at which point a contract will come into existence between us (Bramblewood Kennels) and you (the Pet Owner).  If we are unable to accept your booking, we will inform you and you will not be-charged.  Any payments you have made to us for services not received, will be-refunded.

Deposits: We reserve the right to charge a deposit when you request a booking.  Booking deposits will be-refunded where cancellations have been-made over 14 days before the day of arrival.

Fees are-charged at a daily rate: Should an animal be collected before the booked departure date, the remaining occupancy fee will still be chargeable.  While payments can be-made in advance, otherwise on arrival, at the very latest, payment must be-provided upon collection or the last day of the booking.

Shared accommodation: Should we feel the need to separate your pets in the interest of the animal’s own safety, for each additional accommodation used for each night the animals are-separated, an extra day’s accommodation charge equal to the agreed daily rate at the start of the contract, will be-chargeable (Point 4, Terms and Conditions).
