Terms & Conditions

GymDog  is a company registered in Ireland.

By allowing or organising your dog to participate in the services we provide, and/or by submitting our admission form; you accept, understand and agree the following terms and conditions, which may be updated at any time:


We feel it’s important for you to know that although we do everything we can to ensure the safety and happiness of your dog, there are some risks involved with our activities that you should be aware of – risks most of which are present in every day life for your dog in situations they will be in whether they are in day care or just simply playing with other dogs 0r running free in your own garden.


Dogs mixing with other dogs (including other sized dogs and dogs of different ages and breeds) is a vital part of their life and education.


At GymDog , dogs are never left together without direct supervision, however during the time your dog is at day care, they will come into contact with other dogs in an off lead  environment. In the vast majority of cases this is a hugely positive experience; however, as with any group interaction, this presents the risk of dog-on-dog aggression, fights, bites etc.

By bringing your dog to us, you accept all of these risks and agree not to hold GymDog liable. We may keep you informed of any altercation involving your dog, whether damage or injury occurred or not. We also reserve the right to dismiss any dog that shows dangerous or inappropriate behaviour from all services at GymDog with immediate effect. By using our services, you are confirming that your dog has no record of aggressive or anti-social behaviour and you have made a full and frank disclosure of any characteristic or trait that might make the dog unsuitable for socialising with other dogs.

If we feel that your dog poses  any risk to any other dog, even if you do not agree, we reserve the right to  ask you to remove your dog from GymDog.


We will never take a dog into our services if we feel they pose any risk to people or other dogs and we reserve the right to muzzle any dog we think needs to be muzzled to prevent injury to our staff, the public or any other dog. Although these risks are always present within groups of dogs, we do everything possible to reduce the risks to as low as possible.


The vast majority of minor injuries, cuts and scrapes that do occur in day care are from friendly play or when play spills over slightly in excitement- and as such these have to be accepted and any treatment would be the responsibility of the owner of the dog who happened to get the minor injury as it was not caused in malice.


We do end of day checks on all of our day care dogs, however the occasional minor scratch or bump may go unnoticed. You agree to accept these decisions. Please note that we can not be held responsible for the actions of another dog while in the daycare. Dogs are animals and can react in a split second- despite all best intentions and entrance policies, a dog that has never shown signs of aggression before can cause minor or serious injury within the shortest amount of time. It is not possible for even the best trained and experienced team of staff to prevent these incidents when dogs are together in a social environment. It is extremely rare that incidents like this do happen, but the risk is ever present. You agree that you understand and accept this as part and parcel of the service.


 Judgment on which approximate size group your dog will put into is the decision of GymDog and within all of these groups there will be a complete mix of breeds and ages, personalities and temperaments- and some variation in sizes and strength. The group that each dog interacts with at GymDog will change as they grow and the group dynamics change.


Should your dog be involved in any incident, our staff will  bring your dog in to the clinic to be checked by one of our vets  for injuries.  If when you arrive home you notice a scratch or bump , please contact us the next day to discuss. Veterinary checks and first aid with us will be free of charge, however there may be costs for medication.


GymDog WILL NOT BE LIABLE for veterinary fees incurred in any other veterinary practice. You agree not to hold GymDog responsible for failing to spot that an injury has occurred, or that the nature of the injury is worse than realised.  By using our services  , you give permission for GymDog to authorise any treatment/ procedure etc that the vet deems necessary to carry out immediately or to prevent suffering,  This is to ensure your dog doesn’t suffer waiting if we can’t contact you before hand. This also applies when a dog shows signs of sickness or discomfort that we feel needs investigating by a vet- particularly if they are staying with us for a long period of time (more than 12 hours).


You agree to cover these costs in full directly with the vet. It is important to understand that despite all our best efforts, dogs can get sick or injured for a variety of reasons. We believe in letting dogs be dogs and run around and play with each other and on a variety of surfaces and equipment. This can include raised objects and structures, water pools, grass, woodchip, bare soil and rocky areas that they could, for example, chew/ swallow/ cut themselves on/ jump from. We also have a variety of play equipment and toys on site that dogs have access to at all times. Although we make these surfaces and equipment as safe as possible, through play and interaction with these items and surfaces, there is a greater risk of injury than without them- however it also makes the day care a more fun and interactive place for them to be.


By using GymDog, you accept this and will not hold us liable (financially or otherwise) for any injury, accident or sickness that occurs as a result of normal day to day participation in our day care.


Dogs who are showing signs of any potential contagious illness or disease are not able to mix with other dogs in day care and should  not come to day care  until we are satisfied there is no risk present to other dogs. You must inform us if you think your dog may be ill so we can advise on the options available to you. During this period, usual charges apply . This also applies when a dog is recovering from any injury or operation such as neutering or spaying, injured foot etc. and may need to be out of the  day care environment. We also reserve the important right to quarantine or ‘time out’ dogs from the main day care environment for behavioural reasons.


If you believe your dog has any risk of jumping over or climbing up fences of this height- please inform us so we can take appropriate steps. Staff are with dogs at all times so the risk of any escape is extremely low.


Under Irish law it is a requirement that all dogs are microchipped.

You must ensure that your dog is up to date with their vaccinations at all times while using GymDog to look after them in any of our activities. Kennel cough vaccines should be given to all dogs even though they are not 100% successful in preventing the infection.
