Making a Dog Walking Contract
Dogs need fresh air and exercise several times a day. A Dog Walking Contract helps establish the arrangement between a pet owner and a dog walker for services during working hours, vacations, or whenever help is needed. This document clarifies details like fees, optimal walking times, and getting in and out of the pet owner's home. When it is drafted properly, this legal contract can limit the number of disputes in the future. Different from many other websites you may come across, there's more that Rocket Lawyer offers besides dog walking contract templates. In the event of missed payments or any other issue, your Rocket Lawyer membership provides optional access to Document Defense® protection.
Even if your dog walking business is brand new, it's always valuable to get the details of your work in writing. You might decide to sign a Dog Walking Contract due to the fact that it grants the helpful benefits listed here:
Any dog walker who decides against signing a Dog Walking Agreement can expect some issues, including unrealistic requests and confusion about due dates.
Specific details to cover are:
As you may expect for an agreement like this one, any Dog Walker Contract that you make with Rocket Lawyer will also contain the standard legalese with regard to the non-employment relationship between the dog walker and dog owner, dispute resolution methods, and restitution for losses. When you make your agreement, you'll also be able to designate which state's jurisdiction it is subject to. Using the document tool, you are able to add further personalization, as necessary.
The great news is you will not have to start from scratch when getting your contract in writing. With Rocket Lawyer, anyone should feel empowered to produce Dog Walking Contracts online very easily. Your contract will be built step by step, so you can be sure that it has the proper details within. Normally, given the level of personalization, you might end up paying a traditional lawyer fees in the hundreds of dollars, if not more.
Each Dog Walking Contract will come with a checklist of directions for what you should do next. You also may take any of these actions with your document: making edits, adding electronic signatures with RocketSign®, printing it, and saving it in PDF format or as a Word document. Most importantly, you will need to send a final copy of your fully signed contract to the dog owner.
If you opt to do it by yourself, getting a lawyer to proofread contracts can be costly. Sometimes a lawyer will not even accept requests to review contracts that they did not write. In the event that an attorney does offer to help you, they would still make you pay their standard fees to do so. An easier and more cost-effective alternative would be through attorney services at Rocket Lawyer. If you become a Premium member, you can get your contracts reviewed or ask specific legal questions. Whether you end up making Dog Walking Agreements or other agreements for your business, Rocket Lawyer is here for you.
