Good day everybody! GOOD NEWS!
I hope all my customers and their relatives and friends have managed to dodge Mr Covid so far. I have reopened as from today with new measures in place. All the doggys that are a few weeks overdue will be prioritised and I will try and accommodate all of you as fast and as safe as possible. I know some of you have already ‘had a go’ at trimming your beloved pet so thank you for that, it’s made a big difference to everybody, not just me but others who really can’t do their own dog and now have less time to wait. MORE GOOD NEWS! I now have a card machine that is contactless and you can pay through my window.
To keep you safe, may I ask you to place your dog into my porch area without their collar and lead, then I will fetch them in as soon as you close the door, but do it quickly or they’ll follow you out! All the door handles and gate will be wiped clean between each person.

Once I have finished your dog I will place them in the porch area sprayed with an antiseptic skin care spray which has been tested for Covid instead of the lovely smell of my grooming spray! My list has now gone down to around 25 dogs so I will be ringing you within the next few weeks, if I don’t ring you, please ring me, any time you like! Anyone who already has an appointment booked since before March 23rd, you may need to contact me about whether it will be moved or stay where it is, I am not booking 6-8 weeks in advance at present until I’ve caught up. I wish everybody well and hope to see you all in the very near future. You can’t beat a bit of good news!
