If an initial cleaning is needed, a fee of $80 per man-hour will be applied upon the completion of your initial service and before any weekly services can be started.

1 hour minimum of $80. Once the initial hour is completed, additional time is billed in 15-minute increments.

It is our policy to remain open during most periods of inclement weather. In most cases, if the roads are clear, we will continue with our routes to find as much waste as possible.
However, where extraordinary circumstances warrant, due to heavy snow and/or ice, high winds, heavy rain, and/ thunderstorms, or other unforeseen business interruption, Yogi's Doody Scoopers reserves the right to postpone or cancel our routed dog waste removal service. We do not offer refunds for postponed/canceled weekly services due to the additional time required for cleanups, following cancelations.

LEAVES, DEBRIS, TALL GRASS, & NOT MAINTAINED YARDS
We will always do our best to clean your yard the best that we can.
We understand that maintaining your yard is a lot of work and it may not always be in the best shape. Please understand that it can be very difficult to find dog poop in tall grass or in a yard full of leaves or other debris. If your grass is tall when we come, do not be surprised when you uncover some dog waste that we may have missed. We will be back on our next scheduled visit and will likely get anything we missed when yard maintenance is complete.
DOG POOP REMOVAL
Although we make every effort to complete our dog waste removal services with the highest of standards, Yogi's Doody Scoopers does not guarantee that all pet waste will be completely removed due to conditions out of our control.
Yogi's Doody Scoopers only recognizes Thanksgiving day, Christmas Day, and New Year's day as holidays that we do not provide service to. If your pick up day falls on one of these 3 days, we will skip that week and pick up the following week.
There are no refunds for a missed pick up on a designated Holiday. We still have to do the work and pick up all of the poop from the week before.
Yogi's Doody Scoopers is a pre-paid service. All routed dog waste removal services are pre-billed for that month of services and sent out on the first of every month with payment due upon receipt of the invoice. Automatic payment is available and recommended to avoid any delay in your services.

If more than 30 days have passed since your last clean up, a first time clean up fee will apply. We will only pause service for periods up to 30 days. A 25% late fee will be applied to any past due account over 30 days from the date the invoice was issued.
