‼*CUSTOMER NOTICE* ‼
I am pleased to announce that I will be reopening on Tuesday 10th November!
The Governments website has been updated to include a reference to pet grooming during the second lockdown in England. It states: Animal grooming facilities may also stay open but must only be used for the purposes of the animal’s welfare (and not for aesthetic purposes). I consider aesthetic purposes to be services such as creative grooming, facials, nail painting, and fur-dyeing. These activities will not be undertaken during lockdown.
I have had written confirmation from both APHA (Animal and Plant Health Agency) and a Trading Standards Practitioner for North Tyneside Council, which confirm under the new Regulations I am allowed to remain open, provided I can do so safely to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Whilst I anticipate the demand for dog grooming will be severely affected (for numerous reasons) I would like to reassure my customers that Trading Standards also wrote the following ‘The Regulations provides no person may be outside the place where they live without reasonable excuse. One such reason is for a person to attend to the care of or exercise of a pet.’
With COVID19 there are no guarantees, however, I have sought guidance from all the relevant authorities and I am 100% confident I can meet all of the governments regulations and more. Customers health and safety is paramount to the work that i carry out.
On arrival you will be required to remove your collar and lead and take it with you. Using one of my leads which will be connected to the exterior wall, attach it to your dog, ring the bell then step back behind the marker provided. Your dog will then be sprayed with a non toxic anti-viral spray prior to entering the salon. Same process for collection.
The groom will be carried out in full PPE. Once the groom is complete and the handover has taken place, the salon must be totally cleaned and disinfected top to bottom before the next dog to minimise the risk of spread from household to household.
Contactless card payments will be accepted. If you wish to pay by cash no change will be given. Monies must be placed into tub provided.
I will have strict measures in place, one being appointment and collection times, it is really important that you adhere to the times given as I do not want any customers coming into contact with each other.
Thank you all for your loyalty and I can’t wait to see you all again 😊
