Masks are warn at all times while with your dog, in your home or anywhere in your building. In addition our team is wearing their face masks while commuting between walks. They may take their mask off if taking a break and they are in a place where they have plenty of distance between them and others.

Pack Leaders (aka your walker) and our staff are all washing and/or sanitizing their hands before and after each visit as well as lots of times in-between!
Brooklyn Bark provides all members of our team with Purell hand sanitizer and refills as needed.
Our team has been advised to following all social distance guidelines while with your pup as well as in between their visits and on their personal time. This includes maintaining as much distance as possible while out on their walk and in your home. If you live in an elevator building, they may return back from their walk a bit sooner to allow time to wait for the elevator in order to allow for that distance.
We have purchased new Biothane that our team will be using with your pup. Using our own leashes, of course, more safe for all. In addition, this material allows us to more throughly sanitize our gear at the end of each day.
