Because doves cannot safely find their way home in bad weather, we are unable to release them in conditions such as strong winds, heavy rain, snow or fog and in the hunting season. If a release is cancelled due to unforeseen bad weather, a refund will be given. This does not refer display only events where the birds remain in their display cages.


Birds will not be released indoors.


An experienced Doves Direct handler will attend your event, appropriately dressed for the occasion. It is essential that the birds arrive home before dark and so we reserve the right to decide an appropriate time window for release with you, the client, setting the exact time within that window.  This will be based on sunrise/sunset times and local conditions


Weddings, Parties, Christenings and Funerals

Animal Safety and Terms of Release.

The final decision to proceed with the release of birds is at the

sole discretion of the handler.


Due to a controlled diet, it is unlikely that the birds will leave droppings during a release. However, this is natural process which cannot be controlled or anticipated.
