Our payment arrangements

For Dog Walking Customers

All clients who use CDPOM’s regular Dog Walking services are invoiced in the middle of each month one month in arrears.

Payments on these invoices are due on receipt, unless other arrangements have been made – e.g. we have a customer’s credit or debit card details on file. 

For Customers with Cats & Small Animals who use our Home Visiting Pet Care service  

All CDPOM customers  are required to pay on receipt of invoice, which, when possible will be presented prior to or at the start of the booking, unless other payment methods have been arranged in advance – e.g. you have provided your credit or debit card details.

For Grooming Customers  

All Grooming & Microchipping  jobs for dogs & cats provided by the Otto & Alice Mobile Grooming Studio will be invoiced unless bills are settled on completion of the work or we already have your card details.

Payment methods

There are a number of payment options open to you.

You can:

  • Transfer your payment electronically by BACs to our Barclays account: sort code 20-29-63, account number 90485209, using your name or account reference so we can tie up the payment with our records
  • Pay securely and safely via PayPal on the website by clicking on Pay Online and following the instructions. You don’t need a PayPal account to do this.
  • Give the details of any of the major credit/debit cards (including Amex) over the phone by ringing the Louise on 07973 692509 or Roger on 07973 815197.
  • Pay in cash on first visit

Cancellation Fees

To ensure quality of service we have had to introduce cancellation fees. For home visiting customers, for example, if a period of care is booked but cancelled with less than 48 hours notice a 1-visit fee will be charged. If a dog walk is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice a £10 fee will be charged.

When customers give us their card details they will still have the choice how they pay – by cash, electronic bank transfer, payment via PayPal, or by card. But if payment is not received within the maximum of 7 days of the invoice date the card details will be used to take payment for any outstanding bill. Paying in advance or providing card details will guarantee the service you request.
