Pet owners have grabbed their pet’s favorite leash and are ready because the first week in October is National Walk Your Dog Week. With the weather cooling off there is no limit to the distance puppy parents will travel. They’ll be in full force to make sure their four-legged friend has the best day possible —whether walking through a community, beach, shopping mall or the park, it’s important that local businesses know how to accommodate these dogs and their owners.
There are several steps that you can take to ensure a positive animal-friendly environment, while potentially driving new business in the process. Here’s how:
PET STATION PIT STOP
Does your business get a lot of foot traffic? Are you looking to become pet-friendly and expand your loyalty base? If so, talk with your building or property managers to promote zoned locations where loyal customers can pull over and avoid a pet related accident. The most efficient way to ensure paw traffic flows smoothly would be to install DOGIPOT® Pet Stations.
Pet Stations are a proven solution to help keep dog-friendly areas free from dog waste. Puppy parent’s love catering to the needs of their fur baby, and will leave no sidewalk unexplored to find a pet-friendly business. Whether it’s a retail shop or restaurant DOGIPOT® Pet Stations will keep the customers walking in!
CLEAN UP ON AISLE TWO
What’s National Walk Your Dog Week without a little shopping? Pups will be beaming with excitement in search of a new toy amongst their fellow paw steering friends, that an accident is bound to happen. Make sure your business is prepared to deal with waste using DOGIPOT® Single Roll Dispenser.
The dispenser can be wall mounted—allowing for maximum play space (mounting hardware is included) and includes one DOGIPOT® SMART Litter Pick Up Bags™. The DOGIPOT® Single Roll Dispenser is a great alternative to the DOGIPOT® Pet Stations. Take your business by the leash and become pet-friendly.
REFILL THE TANK
There is no better shopping companion than man’s best friend, but going the distance sure can be exhausting! These pups and their parents are going to need a place to relax with food and a cool glass of water. Be a part of the fun! Host these parents and their pooches with a DOGIPOT® Dog Bowl, these 10″ wide and 2.5″ deep durable recycled plastic bowls hold up to 32 ounces of food and water!
Keeping these pups happy with a full tank will keep the good times rolling, keeping them around longer making for a successful rest stop that any pup parent can’t resist. With these great tips, you’ll make sure that puppies and their parents know that they’re welcome into your business and they’ll be sure to walk into your store during National Walk Your Dog Week.
