How Pause4PittyPawz helps limit the spread of COVID-19?

At this time, physical distancing (also called social distancing) is one of the most effective methods of reducing the spread of COVID-19. Physical distancing is the act of intentionally creating distance between people, in order to slow the spread of disease.

Some of the Principles of physical distancing P4PP practices:

  • Staying at least 6 feet (2 meters) away from others when in public

  • Avoiding crowds

  • We limit errands we go on

  • We postpone social gatherings. We started meeting "virtually"

  • Staying home as much as possible

In addition to physical distancing, wearing are wearing face masks to stop the spread of COVID-19. 


What are the risks to dog walkers & trainers during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Many clients still want you to provide daily exercise for their dogs. Clients that become ill will need us now, even more than ever. It is important to understand how we provide care for your pets in a way that is safe for both you and your clients.

As described, we make it important to limit direct contact with our clients. If we interact with clients while picking up or dropping off their pets, we wear a face mask and we stand at least 6 feet apart during conversation. People frequently shed the virus without showing any symptoms of disease, so it is important we practice physical distancing even with clients who appear healthy.
