As a dog owner, even when it feels like you’re staying on top of cleaning up the yard, the messes pile up fast if you miss a day. After a busy week, you can’t set foot in your yard. Luckily, you don’t have to deal with a messy yard alone. Dog poop removal companies can help you clean your yard, whether you need help once or an extra hand every week. Here’s what to look for when hiring a pooper scooper for your property.

How long they’ve been in business

Many entrepreneurs get into the dog poop removal industry because of its low startup costs and overhead. But there’s no replacement for experience. Dog poop scooping may feel like a low-skill job. But when you’re trusting a company to get your yard pristine, you don’t want inexperience or a rushed team.

Dog Butler has over a decade of experience scooping dog poop and cleaning yards. We teach our team members our expert technique for ensuring that yards are pristine.

What their services include

Find out the extent of a dog poop removal company’s services before hiring them. They may only work with yards up to a specific size or exclusively residential properties. Many commercial and multi-family properties benefit from pooper scooper services to keep their grounds pristine, even when dog owners don’t clean up after themselves.

Make sure when you hire a dog poop removal company that they can meet your needs now and in the future if you move or get a second or third dog.

How they communicate with customers

While it might seem like a pooper scooper service is something you can simply hire and forget about, open communication is still critical. It may be gross, but your dog’s poop can be an important sign that your pet isn’t feeling well.

Find out if a dog poop removal company communicates via call, text, or email to let you know something is amiss in your dog’s waste or if services will be delayed due to inclement weather.

How they charge for their services

During an initial call with a dog poop removal company, ask how they charge for their services. Some businesses have a flat, per-yard rate, while others base their rates on the size of the property and the number of dogs.

Depending on how many pets you have and the size of your backyard, it might make more sense to go with one company over another. At Dog Butler, we scale our pricing based on the number of the dogs, the frequency of visits, and the property size, so you get a fair price.

If they require a contract

Some companies don’t start working until they’ve signed a contract with a new client. It can be hard to know what kind of help you’ll need with your yard in the future. At Dog Butler, we prioritize flexibility for our clients, so we don’t require contracts. You can schedule services when you need them and cancel with notice.
