Dog walker leaves my 8 week old puppy stranded

Daniel is great with your dogs. He was a dog walker for our puppy from 10 weeks of age to today at 14 months and did wonderful things to help her grow up - extra training, treats when she was recovering from an injury and general obedience. We counted on him to do daily walks and even had him bring the dog to our recent wedding for photos. He recently contacted us to act as a reference for him, which we agreed to do. That is, up until today. Today we learned Daniel is an irrational business man. We recently brought a new puppy in to our home. As two working adults, we needed help to manage the early puppyhood days and asked for his assistance. While Daniel was more than willing to do so, he became extremely agitated when we questioned his pricing model ($34 per visit ; $17 for a 15 minute visit with the puppy and $17 for a 15 minute walk with our 1 year old). He explained the puppy visit might be longer, and we sent an email stating we agreed to his terms. Within hours, Daniel sent an abrupt informing us (direct quote) " Game over. Your keys will be at the post office and returned via certified mail in the morning" Unfortunately, I happened to be travelling and didn't see his note until later during the day so was completely unaware. As a result, my puppy unexpectedly spent many hours in the kennel alone without any service. Needless to say that after being a loyal customer for over a year, with 3+ walks per week and spending thousands on his service, we were floored. The conclusion is that yes, he might be good dog person, just don't ask questions or your service will be terminated.
