‘You can keep the house – I’ll have the dog’; HCR launches ‘Pup-Nup®’

When a couple splits up, their dog can become a bone of contention – for some, it’s as important as sorting out the money or the house. Because dog ownership is a real commitment, Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ family law team has launched a canine version of the pre-nuptial agreement, to set out who will look after the dog if a relationship ends; with so many buying puppies in lockdown, this kind of care is vital.

The Pup-Nup® agreement will not only safeguard one dog’s life but also help other dogs – each agreement will be accompanied by a donation from HCR to Dogs Trust, safeguarding dogs who still need help and care.

The Pup-Nup® specifies where your dog will live, its diet, insurance and health care provisions, holiday arrangements and what would happen if one owner does not carry out their duties of ownership.
