If you're a pet owner, chances are you've considered hiring a professional pooper scooper at some point.
Or you didn't know they existed until recently!
But with so many options available, how do you choose the best one for your needs?
Here are some factors to consider when selecting a pooper scooper service:
Cost is probably the most important factor to consider when choosing any service.
Make sure to shop around and compare prices from different pooper scooper companies to find the best deal (or use our custom quote calculator for reference).
Just keep in mind that the lowest price may not always be the best value – you may get what you pay for.
Frequency of Visits
Some pooper scooper services offer weekly visits, while others visit every other week or once a month.
Consider your needs and budget when deciding on the frequency of visits. If you have a large yard or multiple pets, you may want to opt for more frequent visits.
Depending on the service, you can even schedule a one-time clean just to help you catch up if it's been a particularly tough season for you.
Type of Service
Different companies offer different types of services.
Some simply scoop and remove the waste, some haul the waste away, while others can deodorize and sanitize the area as well.
Decide what level of service you need and choose a company that offers it.
Don't be afraid to ask for references or check online reviews when choosing a pooper scooper service.
A good reputation is usually a good indication of quality.
While Yelp may be the norm for some, they're known to (allegedly) extort business owners and hide positive reviews, so be sure to snoop around on multiple sites to get the full picture.
Consider how easy it is to schedule and pay for the service.
Some pooper scooper companies (like ours) offer online booking and payment options, which can be convenient for busy pet owners.
While other companies offer the timeless tradition of paper and pen and snail mail. All depends on your personal preference!
By considering these factors, you can find the best pooper scooper service for your needs and budget. Remember – a clean yard is a happy yard!
