Due to the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus, Pack Pals will be putting in place new measures and guidelines to stop the spread of this virus from one household to another. I will outline these below for you: 1. Individual Towels to be used per pet. Towels will be washed at high temperature after each use, and each dog will have its own towel. 2. Surgical Gloves or hand sanitiser will be used entering and vacating your home 3. All dog leads to be cleaned after their walks with a Pet safe anti-bacterial wipes/spray. 4. If owners are showing signs of a cold or virus, we ask that dogs are exchanged outside of the property (e.g. doorstep) as we would not enter the property, so minimising physical contact. We will ask the owners to wash their hands before they hand over their dogs to us. - Unfortunately for those with confirmed cases of the virus we will not be able to offer a service 5. We have issued all our walkers with Formula H disinfectant/antibacterial spray, which is a pet safe product. This will be used in vehicles carrying your pets where we feel this action could reduce the risk of spreading the virus. 6. We will offer advice to all our clients, if they need more information on keeping their dogs exercised and stimulated in the home. 7. We will keep all our clients updated if the business is affected in any way and if closure of business becomes necessary. 8. We will follow Vets and Governments guidelines throughout this period This virus can be contained, it is in Pack Pals best interest to do as much as we possible can to reduce the spread of Coronavirus.
