    Hi I’ve come across a new issue with my pet care/ dog walking business and would love advice/ thoughts from other people experienced in the industry please? :)
    I have a new client- a puppy and I’ve been told he has been diagnosed with an infection- camphlybactor- he is not cleared to mix with other dogs for 4 weeks- I would just be giving him solo visits and walks at his home but I’m worried about the risk of transferring the bacteria (contagious to other dogs and people) to my other canine clients. Shall I cancel my services to this puppy owner for 4 weeks or is this excessive and should I just continue and just exercise good hygiene? Thanks

    You would need to be very very proactive if you are going to carry on seeing the pup. I would think that to be totally safe you would need to either change your clothes or put overalls on when you see the pup and have disinfectant at your car to clean your boots and hands before going on to another client. It is very infectious to people as well as animals so personally I would rather not go near it.
