It’s Snowin’, and Your Dog Keeps Goin’

The winter season is upon us, and everyone is gearing up and preparing for snow – depending on where you live. While you may be planning to rush to the store for a stockpile of milk and bread to survive the next snowstorm, your dog doesn’t have the option of bundling up and staying inside until the storm is over. When your dog has to go, he’s going outside in the cold and snow. That means your pet’s poop will be sitting in the snow, getting covered and freezing up. Odds are, you don’t want to go out there and shovel it. So, how do you keep your yard clean during inclement weather? POOP 911 is here with answers to help you through this cold, snowy season with POOP 911’s inclement weather policy.

Do you pick up dog poop in the snow?

Absolutely. Our service to you is essential, so we will come out and clean up your dog’s poop regardless of snow on the ground. We work hard to make sure we find every pile, even if buried. We guarantee you’ll be satisfied with the results or your next dog poop pick up is free.

Is there a time when you won’t come out?

We do our best to come out at the scheduled date and time. However, because of inclement weather, we may fall behind. Naturally, road closings and storms like hurricanes, tornadoes, and blizzards will cause us to cancel a pickup. Getting swept up to the land of OZ won’t help us produce a clean yard for you, so we will come out as soon as it’s safe. You will receive an email or phone call letting you know about the cancellation. We will, of course, clean up all your dog’s poop that we can find when we come. Our service to you is our priority.

Why is it important to keep my dog poop cleaned up if there’s snow on the ground?

Dog poop will pile up over time if it isn’t cleaned up. With regular service during the snowy season, our goal is to keep the accumulated dog poop to a minimum. We don’t want your yard to be covered with dog poop piles when the snow thaws. It’s a mess for you and your dog, not to mention a health hazard. That’s why it’s important for us to come out and clean as much as we can, even when there’s snow on the ground. It means your yard will be more decent in the long run, which is safer for you and your family.

Keeping your yard free of dog poop during all seasons is POOP 911’s goal. If you need dog poop clean up for any reason, or if you have questions about POOP 911’s inclement weather policy then don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re ready to help you and your dog in any way we can. If you’re prepared to schedule a dog poop clean up, you can do so online right now!
