If You Are Boarding A Dog, Who Is Responsible For The Health And Safety Of The Dog?
We all know dogs are wonderful animals who bring a lot of joy and happiness to both our lives and the lives of those around us. But there's always a debate on who is responsible for the health and safety of the dog-the owner or the person boarding them.
The owner of the pet is the one who signs the contract when getting a dog. They are responsible for feeding, grooming, and training. The person boarding them has no responsibility for these things, they simply pick up the dog and drop it off - but not without paying for it of course.
So most people can agree that in the eyes of the law, the owner is responsible for their dog - but what about in real life?
It's best to think of it as a partnership between both people. The boarding person should be aware that if they do not take proper care of the animal, they will be held accountable by the Owner. And so too will the Owner be held accountable if they do not provide enough training and supervision to the pet before bringing them to a boarding facility.
