New On-line Booking System – Its here!

Whilst I have been in lockdown my website developer (the saint!) and I have been busy putting a new online booking system into place, and this is now live.

It is found on services/bookings page on this website and I welcome everyone to use it where you know how long your groom usually takes. eg 1hour, 1.5hours, 3 hours.  There are booking slots for all these.

So for current clients, please feel free to book your grooms for your next, or even the whole years worth of appointments. 

The system will send me an email which I can approve and confirm your booking, and an email will be sent to remind you about your booking the day before. Awesome.

If you do not know the time it will take for a groom, or if you need longer time than usual, please feel free to book something and put in the comments your notes, I can amend your booking and contact you if necessary.

If you are a new client, please fill in the booking enquiry form on the contact page, and I will contact you. 

You will be able to book grooms, teeth cleaning session (30 mins each), TTouch training/general dog training sessions.

If you wish to book nail clipping as a separate entity, please contact me via the enquiry form/call me/text me/FB me however you wish and I will book you in.

Do hope you enjoy the new system and it works for all of us.

Covid-19

Stylish Fido is currently only open to existing customers, with strict procedures during the Covid-19 lockdown.

At your appointment time, please enter the garden, and just inside the gate remove all collar and leads and let your dog off. I will be waiting. If you dog is small and likely to bolt as you leave, there is a crate by the door you can use.

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

Try and use gloves or disinfect hands after using the gate handles/crate latch. I can’t guarantee to clean these after each visitor, but I am trying.

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 a animal safe disinfectant), I will wait until you are safely inside the garden again and then release your dog to you.

Please try and pay via BACS whenever possible (contact me for details), or if you have to pay cash I can still take it, however, please leave on the crate.

Thank you for your continued custom at this time.

Stay safe everyone

Caroline and the gang

Feedback from TTouch workshop (July 2016)

“The thundershirt has arrived and he has had it on for a short time to get used to it.
Tried the ear touches before flyball and were a great help.
So pleased I signed up for your workshop.”

“Caroline was really clear with her explanations and very understanding with my dog… I enjoyed the lead walking and Body Wraps” – July 2016

“..(The workshop) helped with ideas for my dogs stress and problems… There were opportunity for clarification after each topic was introduced”

“Nice to have an excellent venue and the opportunity to work inside and outside… Really enjoyed the day”

” (The workshop covered) Harness work, line work, different touches, lead work.  I enjoyed the proprioception exercises and working on calm lead and harness…”

“Well presented and explained and demonstrated”

” (I particularly enjoyed)… Groundwork and interrupting my dog’s barking with Touches.

Microchipping – The Law – April 2016

Well we are here, 6 April 2016.  The new Law on Microchipping comes into effect today.  What does it mean to you?

From today (6 April 2016), all puppies and dogs have to be microchipped by the time they are 8 weeks old with the keeper’s details recorded on an appropriate database.

If you have a dog that is not microchipped OR your details are not up to date on the database (e.g. address/keeper/phone number) then you are liable for a fine of £500.

You will have 21 days to either microchip your dog or update your details before a fine is issued.

Microchipping your dog will not prevent your animal from going missing or being stolen, but it vastly improve your chances of having your animal reunited with you if it is picked up and passed to a dog warden/vet who can then look up your details and call you to give you the good news that your dog has been found.

Remember the law states that dog wardens/police are only obliged to give you 7 days notice before they can put your dog to sleep, so if your details are not up to date, this is a possibility, and the reason it is now law to keep your details correct on the database.

Please also remember it is also law for all dogs to have a name tag with the keeper’s name and address on it.  This has not changed with the new microchipping law.

If you live in Steyning and need to have your dog microchipped asap, then contact me, as I am a registered microchip implanter, and will register your dog (or cat) on the Petlog database.
