This practice is a mobile service in metropolitan Christchurch – your dog is treated in-home.  Normal service area encompasses Belfast to the north, Hoon Hay/Cashmere to the south, Hornby to the west and Parklands/Bromley to the east.  This allows your dog to be treated in the comfort of its own home.

For locations on the fringes of my service area, or clearly outside the service area, I will always check mileage and quote beforehand.

If there are additional dogs at the premises who are booked for sessions at the same visit, there is a discount of $15 for the second, third, etc. dog.  Payment is by EFTPOS and is expected at the time of consultation.

In some cases, pet insurance may cover all/part of your dog’s massage session.  I do not charge my clients extra for filling out my portion of insurance claims; however payment is expected at time of consultation.  It is the owner’s responsibility to deal with their insurance company.

No cancellations or changes allowed within 24 hours of the appointment

I understand that sometimes things happen and you’re not able to make your appointment. If that happens, I’d really appreciate if you could email, text or call to let me know 24 hours before. That way I can offer your time slot to someone else. I respect your time, and ask that you respect mine so you may be charged up to the full value of your appointment if you don’t advise me beforehand. Thanks.

Any unpaid accounts will be referred to debt collection.
