  • We take great pride in the care of any animal in our charge, however, If your dog is old and reaching end of life, you must notify us so we can make a clear written and signed end of life plan incase they need to visit the vet and it is recommended by the Vet that the dog should be put to sleep.
  • If for any reason a dog dies whilst in our care I will contact your emergency contact first for direction on procedures, e.g., cremation or storage.  In the event I cannot reach the emergency contact I will call the owners. In the event no one can be reached and the situation is critical I will take vet advice.
  • Please ensure that any special instructions are given in writing with full detail.
  • If your dog bites anyone or attacks another dog or person or shows aggressive behaviour you will have to either collect your dog or arrange for him to be taken to kennels, if you do not, or are unable to, we will contact Oldham Council to seek advice where the dog warden may impound it.
  • As this is our home as well as our business we reserve the right to ask for your dog to be collected should it continually defecate in the house, obviously accidents will and do happen but on the rare occasion if your dog is NOT toilet trained you need to tell us in advance, so that we can make special arrangements or in some cases refuse the contract.
  • All dogs that stay with GGL Pet Services will wear a collar with our company name and phone number, this is part of the licensing terms and conditions.  Should your dog go missing, whilst in our care, we will immediately contact the Licensing/Dog Warden so they are aware. Please understand that if your dog is not microchipped, you will incur a fine from Oldham Council.
  • Should you be unable to collect your dog on the arranged day, please contact us immediately to re-arrange collection or to arrange delivery.


At GGL we work on a trust basis and therefore do not request a deposit.  We ask in return that if your circumstances change or even if you simply change your mind; please contact us either by email, text of phone to let us know.  This is so your booking can be cleared from the diary and other people will have a chance to re-book your slot.  No charges or prolonged questioning is ever done at GGL so please contact us without fear of reprisals. We are understanding and believe that the choice is entirely yours and if you have any doubts or reservations please let us know so that we can use this information to better improve our service.
