Before lockdown, travellers didn’t really give a second thought to the health and safety of visiting dog friendly places. Now, what they touch and who they interact with is at the top of their list of concerns (including the dog).
It’s critically important for you to build confidence for dog owners and set expectations for visitors around health, safety and cleanliness.
If you make them feel confident that their visit or stay will be as safe, clean and comfortable then you’ll be one step ahead from securing another customer.
Our goal has always been to give dog owners the confidence to visit dog friendly places. That now includes sharing all of the measures you’re taking to respond to the pandemic.
To help you get the woof out to your potential visitors, we’ve created a simple and effective checklist. These safety features are now available to select on your listing so you can share what you’re doing to make every guest’s stay safe. Features include:
Important if you’re following Gov regulations around cleanliness. Offer any extras like hand sanitiser or wipes? Let them know you’re paying attention to small details.
Let dog owners know you have contactless options, cashless payments, or any other ways to support social distancing measures.
Changes supporting food safety measures. Takeaway options, alfresco dining, food hygiene regulations. They’ll be wagging their tails to come and have a bite.
Communication is important and you want dog owners to know you’re a place they can trust. Let your visitors know you’ve updated your listing with this suggested messaging. You can also download the graphic to post alongside it.
Messaging for you to tweak and use:
