We encounter many pets on our visits to customers homes. They do love all the extra attention. We have found that some of our four legged friends do try and assist with the oven cleaning (must be the smell of all the burnt on roasts dinners). They sometimes try to eat what comes out of the oven. This is especially true of dogs.
Some drivers have reported back that the family dog is so interested in helping or hindering it adds more time to the job. As much as we love animals it is not safe to have them in the kitchen whilst we are there, as we do use some very sharp tools. Most of our customers respect this and put the animals in the garden. It’s for their safety and for the technician to not have to worry about being interrupted.
