Dog Lovers Spend Whatever it Takes. Fortunately, Scooper Service Doesn’t Take Much!

Life is better with dogs, and people are increasingly spending big bucks on pets.  How much is too much?  For some dog-lovers, it seems that no amount is too great.

Steve Burgess explores the issue in this article at the Calgary Herald:

“We get people who want to euthanize their animals because of fleas. On the other hand I know a woman who took her cat down to UC Davis in California for a kidney transplant—it probably cost about $100,000.” –Dr. Adrian Walton of Dewdney Animal Hospital

The Privileging of Pets

People are spending more and more money on pets, increasingly regarding them as members of the family, substitutes for children, or even as companions superior to human beings.   As professionals in the pet care industry, pooper-scoopers must be aware not only of the depth of feeling that people have toward their animals for a number of positive reasons, but also that one of the things they love about their dogs compared to people is the trustworthiness and reliability they find in their furry companions.

This is why it is so important for those who own and manage dog waste removal services to be sensitive to the needs of their clients, provide “no questions asked” satisfaction guarantees with free re-cleaning of yards, ease of setting up service, and above all – reliability and dependability.

This article examines the issue of why “pet humanisation trends continue to accelerate” and why some people would rather trust their animals than other people.  As  writes at The Guardian,  “Who can blame us for anthropomorphising animals when it’s becoming harder to have faith in actual human beings?”

People Want to Spend More Money on Pets

Always give the customer the option to spend more money, because lots of them want to.

“The trend to treat dogs like children is becoming increasingly popular,” added Jancy Ulch of K. Sutherland PR. Ulch represents both Bella & Beau and Planet Dog, both of which cater to humans who seek to give their pets special treats.

“This may be due to the growing population of young, working professionals who aren’t quite ready for children, but still want something to spoil and love,” Ulch continued.
