Pet sitting update for PAWSitive Strides and the Coronavirus 2019.
A pet sitting update for the Coronavirus 2019. As of today, March 20th, 2020, PAWSitive Strides is still open for business. To prevent the spread of the disease and to protect our clients and employees, we have been and continue to use good hygiene practices. These include washing hands often and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. In addition, our employees have been instructed to wash hads upon arrival and departure of each visit. They should also wash hands before and after touching the pets or any surface in the home. Finally, sitters have been directed not to report to work if they feel ill or suspect they have come in contact with the virus.
While most traveling has come to a halt, a few clients still have to travel. We have been able to accommodate those clients by taking care of their pets.
Working from Home?
For those working from home, you may need help draining your dog(s)’ energy. If that is the case, please do not hesitate to let us know
so that we can get you on the schedule. In order to minimize contact, we can pick your dog up in the backyard, garage, or other location in your home.
Getting through This Together
