Open dog grooming

Open dog grooming as doon as next week as dogs are suffering and its easy to not have person to person contact and maintain social distancing

Why the contribution is important

Because dogs cant see and are matting

    This could be done safely if appointments staggered . One person only brings pet and on arrival phones to say he/she is outside , remains in car until groomer opens door then takes dog . Owner and groomer wear mask during this handover . Sanitise hands before and after handover . Pay by card in advance if possible .

    Good idea and no human contact easily done

    Would agree with comment made by Frances. Also my older dog ( 13 years) overheats if her coat is not kept short and the overheating causes her distress. For her safety I would welcome this .

    Absolutely agree. Dog groomers should be opened. It is unfair on the dogs to have their hair grow over their eyes etc. The groomer I go to is appointment only anyway. Drop the dogs off, collect them pay by bank transfer if they don't want to handle money.

    Dog grooming can easily be run as a click and collect service. Phone in your appointment, pay by card/bacs, drop the pet off at a designated place, collect when notified from the same place. Dog groomer to allow say 15 minutes between appointments. No human contact required.

    Opening something like pet/dog groomers is an easy one. Any and all of the prior suggestions would work. Specifically one customer in/one out with online or phone prepayment is a snap. Fully agree with keeping the lockdown strong.....but let's also think pragmatically on what can be loosened up without upping the risk. Lastly, grooming salons can be equally safe (or more so) as butchers, green grocers etc and those shops ARE allowed to deal in cash.
