Beware Dog Owner

Pet Pickup has been observing over the years many companies / individuals that have come and gone in the dog waste removal service industry. Many of them are "fly by nights" that pop up during the Spring cleanup season. They either over charge or under charge for the dog waste removal service. They also tend to demand "cash" for their services. The fact of the matter is that they are not properly insured (general liability, workers compensation and commercial auto). Some actually stay in business offering what seems to be "to good to be true" service fees for service on a regular basis (i.e. weekly services). As a result these individuals / companies are exposing you as a homeowner to liability / risk and their practices are unethical if not illegal! If your property, your family / pet(s), or the general public are damaged / injured, then there is nothing to offer for protection / compensation. If the individual(s) performing the service sustains injury on your property, then you and your homeowners insurance is exposed to liability.

You as a pet and home owner can have peace of mind as a customer of Pet Pickup, Inc. Pet Pickup, Inc. is fully insured with general liability, workers compensation and auto policies. If one of our individuals is injured on your property, then the staff member is protected under our workers compensation policy. Once again you can have peace of mind by employing our services as well as knowing that you have also legitimately contributed to many American individuals working status.

Why you should have a dog waste removal service:

There are numerous types of bacteria, diseases, viruses and parasites that are carried in canine feces.  The devastating effect of Roundworm is usually blindness to children and can be transmitted to adults also.  Roundworms can develop within a couple of weeks and can live from months to years on your property.  This is why a weekly service visit would be very beneficial to ensure protection against contamination and transmission to humans.  Maybe this is why many doctors have referred pregnant women and also employ our services themselves.

Dogs smell it, roll in it, walk in it, even ingest it. And, oftentimes, pick up serious diseases from it. Animal feces are one of the most common sources of the following diseases: Parvo Virus, Whipworms, Hookworms, Roundworms (ascarids), Giardia and Coccidia.

The best way to prevent these, and the many other bacterial and parasitic infections dogs can acquire from stools, is to remove feces on a weekly basis and keep current on your vaccinations, fecal examinations and deworming.

Dog waste carries and transmits numerous types of diseases, viruses and parasites.  Because of this, dog waste has been posing a serious health threat to the environment and mankind.  Many cities distribute newsletters to their citizens regarding safe drinking water and the importance of their dogs feces being picked up on a weekly basis.

Pet Pickup has created solid work opportunities as a result of the demand for our services.  These work opportunities created are good paying and provide a good living to those who have chosen an occupation in the dog waste removal service industry.  Pet Pickup has employed people from High School Graduates/ College Students to Senior Citizens (from all walks of life).  Pet Pickup is committed to delivering a positive impact on the economy from the creation of the aforementioned work opportunities.  

Dog waste can have a negative effect on your property/homes appearance by ruining your lawn.  Dog waste is also unsightly whether it is on your lawn, your deck, your driveway or walkways of your home.  Prospective home buyers are sometimes turned away from a home because of lack of attention to this matter from the current/previous homeowner.  Many times Pet Pickup is called for "courtesy visits" before a home owner moves out or after the new home owner moves in.
