As we get further into the effects of Covid-19 on our employees and clients, I wanted to reach out and implement a few more safety measures.
As of this time Doodlebug Dog Walker is staying OPEN. If you know you do not need walks for an extended period of time, please let us know. Cancelling on a day by day basis is fine as well. We appreciate your understanding and patience as the fluidity of this pandemic has the potential to change our course of action day to day.
Some of our clients have asked if they can still have their dog walker come out of support. While we deeply appreciate this opportunity, we can not let our dog walkers enter into situations where they will be exposed to other persons. So if you are having your dog walker come, you MUST be out of the house during their visit, or at the very least, sequestered in an area of the home the dog walker would not enter.
Additionally, please disinfect the surfaces you know your dog walker will touch. Door knobs, counter tops, leashes, etc. This is for the safety and well being of our clients and our dog walkers.
If you wish to support your dog walker financially but can’t have them in your home because you or family will be there, we are open to hearing ‘out of the box’ ideas! Maybe you need someone to pick up your curbside groceries or medications? Perhaps you need a yard pick up, or someone to run to the post office for you? Contact us and we will be happy to see what we can do, as long as there is no person to person exposure for the employee. So many of our wonderful clients have asked how they can continue to help Doodlebug and our walkers during this time, and I am truly humbled and grateful by the concern. We have the best clients!!!
Our #1 concern is employee/client safety and this is the best way to ensure all precautions are taken. Please feel free to contact the office if you have any questions. Thank you, stay safe and stay healthy!

Doodlebug Real Time Check In Notifications
Your dog walker / pet sitter will use an app to checkin at the start and completion of your visit. The app collects the GPS location of the walker at checkin and checkout and sends a visit summary via email. So you can relax knowing that your dog walker / pet sitter has visited your home, as well as the times of your visit!
