SAFETY IS OUR #1 PRIORITY

COVID-19

We are excited to announce Pet Sitting 4 Comfort (PS4C) team is immunized against COVID-19 and look forward to caring for our client's lovable pets again. At the same time, continue to enact our enhanced safety protocol used during the pandemic.
We are primarily accepting new clients in the Arlington, VA, area.

We take the safety and well-being of humans and pets very seriously. We've been closely monitoring the developing situation in the D.M.V. area, staying current with recommended safety practices, and have pursued training to enhance its services. This includes achieving two COVID-19-specific certificates:

 

  • Pet Sitters International’s COVID-19 Certification for Pet Sitters and Dog Walkers 

  • FetchFind’s COVID-19 Reopening and Safety Guidelines Course is endorsed by the National Association for Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) and the International Boarding & Pet Services Association (IBPSA).

Clients who decide to engage the services of Pet Sitting 4 Comfort do so with full knowledge of the risks linked to in-home pet care, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic, which is currently improving with Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson vaccines available to the public for free. 

 

COVID-19 PROTOCOLS FOR PET SITTING 4 COMFORT AND ITS CLIENTS:

Pet Sitting 4 Comfort will wear a face mask while inside the Client’s home. When the Client is interfacing with us indoors, both parties will wear masks.

Physical distance of at least 6 feet between Pet Sitting 4 Comfort and other parties must be observed at all times.

We will put on new gloves, wash hands, or use hand sanitizer immediately before entering the Client’s home, immediately after entering the home, and as needed during the visit to follow reasonable hand hygiene recommendations. The Client is responsible for providing necessary hand hygiene supplies to be used at our discretion, which may include hand sanitizer, hand soap, running water, and paper towels.

For visits, the Client is responsible for providing necessary supplies to clean hard surfaces that PS4C comes into contact with, including dish soap, running water, cleansing or disinfecting sprays, paper towels, and disinfecting wipes.

Before agreeing to provide services, clients must notify Pet Sitting 4 Comfort when any housekeepers or other parties will be present and to schedule such services so that both parties can avoid being inside the home at the same time.
