Pet Sitting during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Updated: Aug 31, 2020
As I'm sure everyone is considering their safety during these unprecedented times, pet sitting during the COVID-19 Pandemic and going forward into the future now will be a bit different. While we will always offer an option for contact-less dog walking and pet sitting visits, this has become more of a need presently more than ever. As professional pet sitters, we have updated our staff protocols according to the updated COVID-19 New Jersey state and local regulations -
We will always wash our hands before and after a visit (and during a visit if needed)
We'll wear a face mask while completing services
Wipe down any surfaces we touch
Maintain a social distance of the minimum 6 feet if we must be around people
We have always prioritized health and safety first, but now more than ever it must be adhered to among all businesses that offer services, not just ours. Entering our client's homes has always required a level of precaution when it comes to sanitizing and cleaning up after pets, but there is now a heightened level of safety required to proceed in the local community.
Our staff dog walkers and pet sitters have been updated on our new safety protocols. If any of our staff present any COVID-19 symptoms, we will do a 14 day quarantine for them or until they're symptom-free.
If you have any other questions, whether it's in regards to our new protocols, cat sitting, dog walking, or pet sitting, please don't hesitate to reach out!
