  2. I / we agree to comply with all relevant regulations, legislation and laws concerning the welfare, control, responsible ownership and protection of animals including without limitation the Animal Welfare Act 2006 and ensure that anyone with the temporary care of the dog also complies. The welfare means providing for the animals health, happiness and taking measures to ensure that the dogs health is maintained, in that he/she is properly housed (dog must not be kept outside), fed, watered, socialised and exercised and receives appropriate veterinary care, including vaccination, regular worming and flea treatment.

  13. I / we agree and understand that whilst West Wales Poundies gives as much information as possible and carry out assessment they do not always have a complete history of the dog so cannot guarantee temperament, behaviour or health of the dog.
