Solicitation of PAW PALS LLC Sitters:
Any pet sitter provided by PAW PALS LLC is employed through PAW PALS LLC and is contracted to work only through PAW
PALS LLC and not
directly through the individual Client. Client agrees that all reservations for present and future sitting and
dog walking must be made through PAW
PALS LLC and not the
individual sitter. Client is aware that
the PAW PALS LLC sitter may give out his/her personal number to the
Client. Client agrees to use this number
only in the event of an emergency during which the sitter/walker is already
employed directly through PAW PALS LLC for Client. Client agrees that this number shall not be
used for any solicitation of future pet sitting or dog walking. Client is aware that should this contract be
broken, legal fees and misuse-of-staff charges will apply.
