Listen NOW…

Picture 1_5.pngSusan D’Anello, Founder, Doody Calls joins hosts Lisa Gorman and Scott Sheppard to talk about their nationwide solutions for pet waste removal. Susan and her husband founded the business to make extra money in 2000 and after starting locally in Northern Virginia area soon realized that not many companies offered “pooper scooping” services. The business focused on the needs of homeowners, apartment complexes, public parks, and recreation areas and in 2005 they franchised their company and now have over 25 representative territories across the United States.

For homeowners the costs averages about $15 a week for yard clean-ups which is much less than one would expect as they also help to minimize the unsightly “brown spots” that end up on your lawn areas.

Lisa and Scott review current dog news and story highlights of the week. This week’s reports focuses on Leona Helmsley’s dog $12 million dollar inheritance, and a blind man who is evicted for keeping his service dog.

Lisa delivers the Doggie Chronicles Tip of the Week about hot spots on your dog. Summer heat can frequently cause minor “hot spot” irritations that are often treated as dog allergies. If you see your pet aggravating the area excessively, don’t wait to bring it to your veterinarian for proper treatment.

The dogs should be hand dried vs. placed in a cage under a fan dryer and this is an example of what would set a pet care professional apart from a regular dog groomer.
