TERMS AND CONDITIONS of
K-9 POO GONE, LLC
Monthly Billing Schedule:
Instead of raising our prices to cover time costs, We are now taking your weekly prices over all 52 weeks and averaging them over the period of 12 months to give you one solid monthly price. This will make so that your prices will remain the same whether or not you're serviced four or five times per month. Example: Some months have five Mondays or Fridays. You will now be paying for all of those fifth Mondays or Fridays, averaged out over the period of all 12 months.

2. Does K-9 Poo Gone work year round?
Yes. Dogs keep making their Poo all year long, and our company continues to clean up and keep your yard Poo-free year-round.
3. Our company will usually work in the rain and snow. A very heavy rain or snowfall may stop us. We will most often be able to make up the work later that week or the following week.
Snowstorms: We will work when there has been snow on the ground for awhile, however if there is found to be Poo frozen in ice or to the ground we will leave those that cannot be picked up until it thaws enough to get it easily.
Leaves: When there are leaves covering your lawn/dog area we will do our best to get all that we can find. We will then get the rest after all of the leaves are cleaned up and taken care of. It is your responsibility as the customer to take care of leaf cleanup.

-New Year's Day
NOTE: When a holiday falls on your scheduled service day, we will usually do your cleanup the day before or the day after. Service returns to your regularly scheduled day(s) the following week.
5. Should I unlock my gate?
Yes. Employees are not to climb or jump over fences, so PLEASE, have your gate unlocked on your service day. See: #7
You may provide us with a key or the combination to the lock if that would be convenient for you.
It is your responsibility as the customer to see that you have a latch on your gate that we can easily unlatch and latch from either side of the fence.
6. Can you work with the dog in the yard?
In most cases, yes. We get along well with dogs; however, there are some cases when a dog will not let our worker into the yard. If you know that your dog is not good with strangers, or it becomes apparent that your dog will not allow us to clean the yard, then we ask* that you restrain or confine the dog on your service days. We don't want to take unnecessary risks with your dog or our employees.
*We may be subject to ask at any time.
If we have notified you to keep your dog(s) inside it is your responsibility as the customer, to keep your dog confined on the scheduled service day until you know we have already come and completed your service. When we arrive to service the yard and if, on occasion, we find your dog(s) to be in the yard it is not our responsibility to notify you of our arrival; we may leave immediately due to the fact that you are not fulfilling your responsibilities. You will not be discounted on this occasion and on second offense a $10 fee will be assessed.
7. What if I (the customer) want to skip a service day?
Even though you may want to take a day off one week, your dog doesn't take days off from pooping. Therefore you will still be charged normally. If the dog will be gone from the yard for a couple of weeks you will need to notify us at least 2 weeks prior to dogs' absence; otherwise you will be subject to regular charges.
8. How do I pay you?
We will send an invoice to you on the 1st of every month to charge for the previous month. Payment will be due by the 15th day of each month. If you don't have an e-mail address and need a paper invoice/statement (or just simply prefer a paper invoice), there will be an extra $3.00 charge to produce the paper invoice.
If you have chosen Automatic Payments Your credit/debit card will automatically be charged on the 15th of each month following the service completed.*
*If adequate funds are not available in your account (debit or checking) you will be charged a $25.00, insufficient funds fee, in addition to your bank's charges/fees. This includes if you have a debit card and there are not adequate funds in the account to cover the charge.
CASH AND/OR CHECK CUSTOMERS do NOT pay one month in advance. They pay for the month previous just the same as Automatic Payment Customers. However you (the customer) are responsible to send payment in time so that we RECEIVE payment in full by the 15th day of each month.
EFFECTIVE AUGUST 1ST, 2016: Anyone who pays by cash or check and/or who has not set up Automatic Payments with us via Credit/Debit card will receive a $15 surcharge each month on their invoice. This applies to everyone who has not filed their card number with us in our Auto Pay system, with no exceptions so that there will be no discrimination.
9. LATE PAYMENTS:
If we do not receive payment in full by the 15th day of the month service will be terminated immediately and we will go about due process to collect payment from you. Upon receiving a late payment you will be charged a reinstatement fee of $30.00 if the payment is received within 15 days of due date. If we receive your payment within the 15 day period after invoice due date, not only will there be the reinstatement fee but you will also still be charged for all unserviced weeks that were necessary due to your late payment.
If we receive payment later than 15 days past invoice due date, there will still be a $30.00 reinstatement fee assessed and we will need to reschedule a 1st Time Cleanup Service and you will be charged accordingly. There will also be a Overdue Invoice Fee of $1.00 per day charging back to the invoice due date and counting.
If we do not receive payment from you within 15 days of invoice due date we will go about due process to collect funds. This will likely include turning you in to our Collections Agency. You will also be back charged for all of the Overdue Invoice Fees to the due date of the unpaid invoice or invoices respectively.
10. Are there any contracts I have to sign?
NO! We can start and stop your service over the phone. We do not require contracts, there is no minimum service period, and there is no advance notice required to cancel service.

We strive to provide perfect service, but if there is ever a time when our service is not completely satisfactory, please let us know right away. We will make it right, either by coming back to re-clean the yard the same day or the next day (for FREE), or by crediting your account so you won't be charged. We must be notified within 4 hours of when the service worker serviced your yard for the satisfaction guarantee to be in effect.
Important: Make sure that the pile(s) you have found are not fresh and have not been deposited there since our service worker was in your yard. If our service worker returns when requested and finds the above to be true you will be subject to a fee of $10.00 to cover fuel and time costs.

If we notice any additional dog(s) on the property at any given time we will make note and may contact you questioning you in that regard. However, if we see any additional dog(s) there more than once you will be back charged to the date that we originally noticed the additional dog(s), and/or if you have not notified us of any additional dog(s) within two(2) weeks of acquiring them, -there will also be a $100 fine due to concealment of material information.
