How to Keep your Pets Safe & Secure in their Home when you are Away

Guest Blogger: Many of our customers have pets so we thought we would ask an expert for some tips for keeping pets safe when you are not at home. Dan Lipschultz is the Top Dog and President of Out-U-Go! Pet Care in Denver & Boulder. Out-U-Go! has 8 locations in 3 states and has provided more than 1,000,000 dog walking and cat sitting visits over 16 years. 

These are great tips, thanks Dan!

Heading out for work in the morning?  Getting ready to leave town?  That would all be simple enough if your pup or kitty didn’t have his or her own plans for what to do the moment you walk out the door.  As any pet lover knows, often times these plans include, but are not limited to, making a gigantic mess of your house.

Out-U-Go! has been providing dog walking and pet sitting since 1996.  As such, we have walked in on plenty of messes that took place after our pet parents stepped out.  As fun as it is to discover an easily preventable mess, clean it all up and then call the pet parent to break the news, following these simple Do’s and Do Not’s can help keep your pets safe, secure and out of mischief while you’re away.

–        DO NOT leave your pantry door open.  If you do, your pet might decide to eat all your food, or at least open a big bag of chips and spread them all over your floor.

–        DO keep your toilet seat down, unless you want your pup to drink all the water.

–        DO NOT leave your trash can out and open.  Pups love trash cans about as much as they like pantries.

–        DO put away dishrags, strings, small rawhide chews or other choking hazards when you aren’t there to supervise your pets.

–        DO NOT leave windows open if your cat can reach them.  Your kitty might decide to go for a mid day stroll right through the screen.

–        DO give your pets lots of love, scratches, treats and belly rubs before walking out the door!

–        DO NOT leave home for too long at a time without having an awesome, local dog walker or pet sitter from Out-U-Go! stop by to check in on your favorite furballs.

Stepping Up a “Mile High” for Canine Cancer in Denver’s City Park

Clean Conscience had a great time with over  600 Colorado dog lovers that rallied to fight canine cancer on Sunday, August 21, at the Morris Animal Foundation K9 Cancer Walk at Denver’s beautiful City Park. The walk is part of a national effort to help our best friends live longer, healthier, cancer-free lives. This year, Denver raised nearly $40,000!

Glad we could participate and support the Morris Animal Foundation with this great event.  Please follow the link if  you are interested in learning more or making a donation

Clean Conscience is proud to use Portion Pac Sustainable Solutions!

PortionPac recently announced an unprecedented step to balance 100% of its energy use from all sources by funding green house gas reduction and clean energy projects. The company is investing in Climate Action Reserve and VerifiedCarbon Standard-certified projects through TerraPass and is purchasing Green-E®-certified Renewable Energy Credits through Renewable Choice. For its commitment to using green power, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized the company as a Green Power Partner.

“This is a huge honor and we are proud to be recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. In our decisions personally and as a company we are aware of our responsibility to help create the future for our families and our world.  Business has great power to affect change and we choose to leverage that power to send a message to others across the U.S. that supporting clean sources of electricity is a sound business decision and an important choice in reducing climate risk,” said Burt Klein, President of PortionPac.

According to the U.S. EPA, PortionPac’s green power purchase of  656,000 kWh is equivalent to avoiding the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of more than 90 passenger vehicles per year, or the CO2 emissions from the electricity use of nearly 60 average American homes annually.
