During this difficult time that a "Stay at home" order has been implemented, dogs also need some time to exercise and drain mental and physical energy. Their "normal" has also been affected with all of the changes around them. They are currently experiencing high anxiety from their owners and a stressful environment at home because of "homeschooling" and their owners getting used to working from home, etc.

This is a great time to do Dog Daycare (CAC) and/or Board and Train because this will free-up owners from the responsibility of fulfilling their dogs needs and, at the same time, will benefit your dog and family for having a more relaxed and structured dog.

Covid-19 is an emerging, rapidly changing situation. Mr. Pit Dog Services wants to keep our customers informed with the newest findings about the Coronavirus.

The best way to prevent the spread of this virus continues to be having good hygiene and keeping all frequently touched surfaces disinfected. It is advised to clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces (Ex. tables, hard-back chairs, doorknobs, light switches, remotes, handles, desks, toilets, sinks) daily.

A new study found that temperature and humidity play a big role in how long the virus can survive. For more information about this topic, visit the link below.

COVID-19

At Mr. Pit Dog Services, we want to keep our customers informed about the latest information regarding the Coronavirus and our dogs.

The transmission of this virus primarily occurs when there is contact with an infected person's bodily secretions, such as saliva or mucus droplets in a cough or sneeze.

Transmission via touching a contaminated surface or object (i.e., furniture, clothing) and then touching the mouth, nose, or possibly eyes is also possible, but appears to be a secondary route.

Smooth (non-porous) surfaces (e.g., countertops, door knobs) transmit viruses better than porous materials (e.g., paper money, pet fur) because porous, especially fibrous, materials absorb and trap the pathogen (virus), making it harder to contract through simple touch.

Although there is no current evidence that suggests the transmission of the virus from petting your dog, you should continue to practice good hygiene during those interactions (e.g., wash hands before and after interacting with your pet; ensure your pet is kept well-groomed; regularly clean your pet’s food and water bowls, bedding material, and toys).

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

At Mr. Pit Dog Services, we believe that it is important to have the correct information. Because of this, we have included the link to the CDC webpage to keep all of our customers informed about "Animals and Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)".

At this time, there is no evidence that companion animals, including pets, can spread COVID-19 or that they might be a source of infection in the United States.

We've always conducted sanitizing procedures to prevent the spread of any disease. We will continue to conduct business unless otherwise instructed by local public officials.

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/animals.html

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a virus (more specifically, a coronavirus) identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China.

Dog Trainers and Coronavirus: How to prepare:

Coronavirus — This respiratory illness originated in China and quickly spread internationally. Coronavirus was officially categorized as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on March 11, 2020.
As Coronavirus spreads, health and government authorities are recommending social distancing. Unfortunately, though this is better for the sake of the general public, it means dog trainers are facing waves of rescheduling and cancellations.

Coronavirus: — formally known as “SARS-CoV-2” (the virus) and “COVID-19” (the illness the virus causes) — is alarming for a number of reasons, but misinformation due to fear has caused confusion.

COVID-19 in Dogs
Dogs (and cats!) are not at risk for contracting Coronavirus.
A Pomeranian in Hong Kong “weakly tested positive” for COVID-19 in early March. This worried pet owners with the idea that they may be able to infect their animals or vice-versa. However, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) says there’s no need to worry about your pets getting sick yet. There is a canine Coronavirus, but it’s an intestinal disease — and there’s a vaccination for it.
There’s no definitive evidence that dogs who have been in contact with someone with Coronavirus can spread it to other people. However, “out of an abundance of caution,” the AVMA recommends that “those ill with COVID-19 limit contact with animals until more information is known about the virus.”

COVID-19 in People
At this time Coronavirus is spreading from person-to-person. The virus spreads via respiratory droplets — like saliva or mucus, which fly out when you cough and sneeze — within about a six-foot radius. In order to prevent illness, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are recommending that people:
Wash hands frequently
Avoid touching eyes/mouth/face with unwashed hands
Use hand sanitizer when soap and water are not readily available
Clean and disinfect touched surfaces daily
Avoid close proximity with other people, especially in large groups
Stay home if you’re sick

Preliminary Research Results on the Coronavirus
The SARS-CoV-2 virus is a new mutation of Coronavirus; a virus genetically related to the virus that caused SARS in 2002.
One study, looking at how long the virus can be transmitted through the air or on surfaces, found that virus particles could be measured in the air up to three hours after being sprayed, up to four hours on copper surfaces, 24 hours on cardboard surfaces, and up to three days on plastic and stainless steel surfaces.
This gives an idea of why social distancing and proper cleaning and disinfecting are important, and starts to explain how the virus spreads.

Precautionary Measures for Coronavirus
Extra Cleaning
The CDC is recommending frequent cleaning of touched surfaces. This includes doorknobs, handles, light switches, countertops, desks, chairs, tables, appliances, phones, computers, keyboards, faucets, toilets, etc.
In a dog training facility, trainers should make sure they also clean play and training equipment, clickers, registers/payment technology, treat jars/tupperware, rubber mats, and so on.
The basic guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting from the CDC are:

During cleaning, wear single-use gloves OR reusable gloves dedicated only to cleaning
Always clean surfaces first, using detergent/soap and water
After cleaning, disinfect using one of the following
Bleach solution: 1/3rd cup bleach per one (1) gallon water
Alcohol solution: must be at least 70% isopropyl alcohol
EPA-registered disinfectants

Encourage Active Communication
Communication is an important part of any dog training service. But during this time, it’s especially important to encourage your clients and staff to communicate openly with you if they’re showing signs of illness.
Make sure everyone knows how to reach you for cancellations, and remind them that you’d rather they stay home and get better than risk their own and everyone else’s health.

Keep immunocompromised people safe, and keep yourself safe.

Revisit Cancellation Policies
Have a rigid cancellation policy? It might be time to temporarily suspend it.
Last-minute reschedules and cancellations can be frustrating to deal with, and it’s completely understandable to have a policy to handle them. However, during this time of heightened stress and illness, people may need to cancel more suddenly than usual.

Consider Virtual Dog Training Lessons

This Saturday, March 14th, Ines McNeil, CPDT-KA, will be hosting a LIVE Virtual Dog Training Lessons Workshop designed to help prevent loss of income, even grow your income, and increase your reach as a dog trainer. Learn everything you need to know about pricing your virtual lessons, necessary communication, structure, dos and don’ts, technology, and much more.

In short, though the Coronavirus pandemic is rapidly changing and a little scary, it shouldn’t affect your business and livelihood. Keep calm, wash your hands, and carry on.

About Mr. Pit:

I am a dog behaviorist, which means that I rehabilitate dogs and train people. It’s an important distinction, and one that can be hard for people to understand. Most of my time will be spent on a one on one with you and your pooch.

What dog training does not do is solve behavioral issues. I’m sure many of you reading this have had the experience of calling your dog to come to you — something you’ve trained them to do — but they ignore you because they see a squirrel, rabbit, another animal or something else that steals their attention. In these cases, the “training” goes right out the window.

In order to rehabilitate a dog, you need to figure out what it is in the dog’s environment that is causing the misbehavior. Are they bored? Frustrated? Overexcited? Fearful? If you don’t deal with those issues, you can have a well-trained dog that will sit on command and still be completely bored or frustrated.

The biggest factor in a dog’s environment that affects its behavior is the energy of the people around it. Our dogs are our mirrors. They reflect back the energy we give them, and if we are not calm and assertive they cannot be calm and submissive. This is where the “behaviorist” part of what I do comes into play. If you want a well-behaved dog, you need to have a happy and fulfilled dog through exercise, discipline, and affection.

Mr. Pit is a US ARMY Veteran and a retired Police Officer from Puerto Rico. His love for dogs and experience in Law Enforcement drove him to pursue studies as a Texas Animal Control Officer. Later on, he went to California to train with the Dog Whisperer himself, Cesar Millan. He is also certified as a Canine Good Citizen Evaluator.

His biggest motivation is to help dogs and their “parents” have a successful and happy life together.
