Here are some of our most common frequently asked questions.
How often does your company come out?
Most Customers prefer once a week but twice-weekly service can be arranged as well.
How much does it cost?
This depends on which service, how many dogs, size and condition of your yard.
Is there an extra charge for the first time visit?
It depends. If the yard has been free of poop within the last few weeks, we can start with weekly service with no additional charge.
However, if it has been a while since the yard was free of poop, first-time cleanups will be billed at $45 an hour.
For yards that take longer than one hour, we bill in 10-minute increments ($7.50) for anything over one hour.
Can I get a one-time only service?
Sure! Those are billed at $50 for up to an hour and $8.33 for every additional 10 minutes should it take over one hour.
Do I have to be at home when you arrive?
No, we are happy to work while you are away.
Can my dog(s) be outside while you work?
Yes, as long as the dog is comfortable with us, and we are comfortable with the dog.
Do you work all year?
Yes, we work through most weather all year. Dogs keep making their messes all year long, and our company continues to clean up and remove dog waste from January 1st through December 31st.
How do I change a booked appointment?
We know that life happens and sometimes things need to get changed. Just give us as much notice as possible so this doesn’t affect our other scheduled clients.
Many dog owners try to justify not needing to clean up their dog’s waste. “If I leave it there it will just go away,” or “It’s all-natural, and helps with the yard” are some of the most common misconceptions we hear. Here are the facts:
1. Hookworms, Tapeworms, Ringworms, and Salmonella all spread through a dog’s waste. If not cleaned up properly, the eggs from these parasites can and will live in the yard’s soil for multiple years, as confirmed by the CDC.
2. Lawnmowers don’t “chop up” the mess and make it disappear. Read our point above about parasites and imagine those being flung all over your yard with the blades of a lawnmower. It simply makes it less visible and harder to see by you and your children.
3. When your dog does their business outside, it is never considered fertilizer. Dogs have a high-protein diet that causes their waste to be highly acidic. This will kill your grass, shrubs, and other greenery.
4. Dogs in America produce 20 TRILLION pounds of waste each year. When this waste isn’t picked up, it is often liquefied in the rain and pollutes groundwater and storm drainage systems, which finds its way into local lakes and streams.
5. Speaking of groundwater and drainage contamination, decades ago the EPA classified dog waste as a dangerous pollutant and categorized it the same way they do toxic chemicals. You wouldn’t leave toxic chemicals to sit out in your yard, would you?
