Runner News – Important Announcements

November 2, 2022

Thanks for logging in, and Happy Wednesday! 

 

 

ARE YOU READY FOR MORE RUNS ON YOUR SCHEDULE?

Let me know how you’re doing!  If you are ready for another steady weekly run and nothing is coming up here that fits your schedule, just shoot me a text or call and I’ll get to work for you!

 

TICKS!

Ticks are everywhere right now.  I’m finding them on myself and my dogs after almost every run.  Keep your eyes open for the little buggers; they will wreak havoc on you if you get infected with Lyme.  They are literally everywhere there is grass, so the only way to avoid them altogether is to stay on paved surfaces. That is not practical for me, so I’ll just stay on guard and tell my customers to carefully go over their pups after they’re outside.  Some insect repellant on the legs is helpful.  There are safe, organic spray repellants available for the dogs

 

Customer Relations

Please take a second occasionally and text your customer a nice pic of their pup enjoying their time with you!  They always appreciate it, and I think it is a fun visual reminder of how much their dog is loving the activity.  You can also just share your Map My Run with them, picture included!  It’s just a small way to keep them engaged in the activity you’re providing, and hopefully keep retaining them as satisfied customers. Thank You!!

 

Apparel Order

I am going to place another apparel order soon.  If anyone wants anything, go shopping at jiffyshirts.com. We use “fulfilment group 2” to keep the order consolidated from one warehouse, and keep the shipping free.  Even if you do not want anything pressed on it, there’s a ton of really nice clothing, and it’s usually really inexpensive.  Send me your order by email please.  jefferyldaub@gmail.com

 

Here is the rundown of steady, and fill-in opportunities that we have right now:

 

AVAILABLE STEADY RUNS!

 

 

Max Veltri (Service Level 1, 2x/week )

65 Suncrest Dr, Delmont

 Available runs:  2 evenly spaced weekdays, Prefers late morning (10amish)

Max is a cool little American Cocker Spaniel. He’s no athlete but he enjoys a little 2.5 mi outing of mixed jogging and walking. He’s been going on Wednesday and Friday, and he doesn’t always get two per week.  His owner is ok with flexibility of scheduling week-to-week.  I usually check with her every Sunday for the week.  Alan and Lisa are covering him until he gets a steady runner.

 

Henry Wolfe (Service Level 1, 2x/week)

Jeannette, Lynch Field, Bushy Run, and other locations

 Available runs:  Thursdays, Evenings

Henry is a young 10-month-old Pitty/Cattle Dog mix.  He’s a youngster, so he likes a mix of jogging and exploring.  His home is at 128 Millersdale Rd, so we can’t run from his house, it’s a fast, busy road.  He can meet you wherever you want within about 15 min from his home at 5-6pm. So far we’ve met at McKee stadium in Jeannette, Bushy Run Battlefield, and Lynch Field.  Michelle is going to pick up Tuesdays beginning 11/15.

 

Hank Taylor  (Service Level 1, 3x/week )

30 Glenmeade Dr, Greensburg

 Available runs: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday 9:30am

Hank is one of our newest dogs.  He is a very young and beautiful Cane Corso.  He is also a big, scaredy puppy, and he needs lots of TLC.  This is not a “run”.  We are taking things nice and slow with Hank, we barely get any distance, and he requires a lot of patience.  We are desensitizing Hank to the world, and building a bond with him.  He goes 7X a week; Amanda has Mon and Wed, and Steph has Fri. Tuesday, Thursday are available now, Sat and Sun are available beginning 11/26.

 

 

AVAILABLE FILL-IN RUNS!

Please check the HDRC Vacation and Substitution Calendar!!

 

 FILL-IN RUNS ARE AVAILABLE!  If you would like to “test drive” any of the dogs needing steady runners, feel free!  Check the calendar, it is FULL of opportunities!

 

 

 

 

If you have time off planned and will need coverage, please add your needs to the HDRC Calendar.

 

 Sometimes the schedules of these runs can be tweaked to fit into your schedule, so if something looks like it’s worth investigating, please ask, or make an offer!!
