Safety Protocols
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, DoggyWalker.com has been committed to the continued safety and care of our clients’ homes and pets by adopting new visit protocols.  Our caregiver team has been conducting dog walks and pet sits with the following new protocols in order to maintain everyone’s safety, home security, and peace of mind.  If you and your pet(s) have individual safety requests that are not listed below, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are proud to share that during the course of caring for our client’s pets, no one has developed symptoms or illness from the coronavirus.  And, more than 95% of our team is vaccinated!
DoggyWalker.com is proud to be certified by the Alexandria Health Department as a participant in the ALX Promise Gold program.  As a participant, DoggyWalker.com has committed to higher safety standards for our caregivers and clients than the minimum rules required by law for all businesses.
