Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. I strongly recommend that any person considering hiring a service provider, investigate anyone that sets foot on their property. Your family's safety is of the utmost concern! I would also recommend that proof of insurance be provided to you by that service provider. You can't be too safe when it comes to your home and family.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Did you know your dog produces an average of three piles of poop a day? Puppies will go 6 to 8 times in a single 24 hour period. If you're feeding a dry dog food, make sure that the first ingredient starts with meat!
Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?
A. In order to provide a realistic quote, we would need to know how many dogs you have, if there are rock beds and obstacles in your yard, and if your lot is over-sized. We would also need to know how often you would like the service. We offer weekly, every other week, monthly and "as you need us" services.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. We are the best in Denver, voted #1 in #2 in Denver by KMGH Channel 7 A-List voters for 2009 and 2010. We are an Angie's List Page of Happiness Nominee as well as a Service Magic verified contractor. We pick up where your pooch left off and take your dog's crap, seriously!
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I love being able to be outside working and get a chance to play with the client's dogs in between cleanings. I love the freedom that this job allows me.
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. What do we do with the doo? We recycle it with the help of Envirowagg, who turns it into "Doggone Good" compost, keeping it out of our landfills.
Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?
A. One day while my brother and I were cleaning a commercial property, he found a Garnet bracelet in a pile of dog poop! Four and a half carats worth!
Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
A. If you are planning on renting your home to tenants with pets, don't forget to include a pet cleaning service to their rent! This way you can be assured that someone's keeping an eye on your property when you're not there.
