Dog Sitting Company Problems
Has anyone ever run into issues with using a dog sitting company that has threatened to sue you for damage to their property?
Background Info: Dog company stated they were insured, owner of company comes and picks the dogs up in her vehicle and brings them to a host family for the week.
2nd time we've used them and this time she is stating that my Doberman Zildjian chewed through not one but both seat belts in her vehicle from the time she picked them up at the host family to bring them home to us (no more than a 20 min drive in our town).
History: Zildjian was obviously destructive as a puppy but being that he is almost 6 he hasn't been destructive in 4 years which I told her. At first I apologized because I was shocked, but upon more thinking I don't think there's any way it could've been him. My dog walkers have picked him up once a week for the last year and a half in their vehicle to take him for a group walk and they said he has never showed interest in the seatbelts. We've also taken him on road trips for a week, driving sometimes up to 4 hours at a time between rests and he again has never chewed a seatbelt. He doesn't even rip up stuffed toys much anymore!
I feel like she's just trying to get money out of us, she was late dropping them off by almost an hour as well so I wonder how long they were actually in the vehicle for.......
Feeling frustrated, luckily my husband is moving the conversation to him because I just can't deal with people like this.
