The Good Dog Spot Educates the Community on Pets & COVID-19

Chicopee, MA, March 16, 2020: The Good Dog Spot, with locations in both Chicopee, MA and Northampton, MA is taking a proactive approach in educating the local community on pet care in relation to COVID-19. Current information from the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization indicate that pet animals, such as cats and dogs, cannot be infected by the coronavirus. As such, The Good Dog Spot will continue to operate as normal while implementing extra precautions to keep staff and clients safe.

Their normal cleaning protocols for all animal areas include cleaning and disinfecting with Top Performance 256 Disinfectant. This is a broad-spectrum disinfectant for bacteria, viruses, and fungi, and will ensure all animal areas and equipment within our facility will be safe from spreading COVID-19. In additional to the normal cleaning protocols, they have implemented frequent disinfecting of all human areas, including the lobby and staff break areas (doorknobs, countertops, computer equipment, phones, credit card terminal, etc.). There are many other steps they are taking which are listed on their website, as well as a Facebook Live video on their Facebook page posted on March 16. They want the community to know they are available to help during this trying time.

“We are here to help pet parents get through this difficult and scary time as best we can, while ensuring we are doing everything in our power to prevent spreading the virus. We know it can be difficult to continue to care for your dog under these circumstances, especially trying to tire them out while maintaining social distancing from other humans. We will continue to provide safe pet services while adhering to all guidelines from health officials. We feel so blessed that in this particular time of need, we can be helpers to the pet owners in the Pioneer Valley and support in any way we can,” said Elizabeth Staples, owner of The Good Dog Spot.
