Covid-19 – Lockdown procedure

Stylish Fido is currently only open to existing customers, and we are following the strict procedures set out by the Government during the Covid-19 lockdown.

I can continue to groom dogs for their own welfare; however, I must bathe all dogs and so can only offer full grooming services.

No teeth cleaning without a full groom

No puppy introductions (where there is no bath).  

No nail trims without a full groom.

Vulnerable? Shielding? Self-Isolating?

If you are vulnerable or shielding, I would suggest making an appointment for when the lockdown has eased. Similarly, if you are showing any symptoms or are self-isolating, I would be grateful if you re-arrange your booking. Please call me to discuss.

Appointment Procedures

At your appointment time, please enter the garden, and just inside the gate remove all collar and leads and let your dog off, (don’t forget to close the gate behind you first!).  I will be waiting. If your dog is small and likely to bolt as you leave, please put your dog on the table and I will collect from there, however please wear a mask whenever possible.

Please remember, I can see you at the gate on the CCTV so will know you are there. We can still talk across the garden. Please don’t try and enter the salon.

Try and use gloves or disinfect hands after using the gate handles.  I have left hand anti-bac on the outside of the gate for your use. 

I will pick up your dog from the garden and put straight in the bath. At the end of the groom, (and after I have sprayed your dog with an animal safe disinfectant), I will wait until you are safely inside the garden again before releasing your dog to you.

I would prefer direct payment via BACS whenever possible (contact me for details). If you have to pay cash, I can still take it, however, please let me know and leave it on the table.

Thank you for your continued custom at this time.

Stay safe everyone
