In most cases, yes. If your dog is a vicious man eater then please let us know so that we can send one of our female scoopers instead. We get along well with dogs; however, there are some cases when a dog will not let our worker into the yard to perform pooper scooper services. If you know that your dog is not good with strangers, or it becomes apparent that your dog will not allow us to clean the yard, then we ask that you restrain or confine the dog. We don’t want to take any unnecessary risks with your dog or our employees.  Now, if your dog is friendly then please let them out.  We love dogs and we realize we are coming into their yard and their world.  They want to see us and there is no sense in them being inside barking and getting stressed out.
