Possible date for non-welfare grooms recommencing.
announcement of the revised roadmap for
easing of restrictions this week in the
Scottish Parliament by the First
Minister, we are hopeful to be able to
go back to offering normal grooming
services from the 26th April.
We are waiting on updated
guidance to confirm this, which we do
not expect to be published until nearer
to this date, or possibly even after it.
But fingers crossed that the easing of
restrictions that are scheduled before
then don't cause this to be delayed.
The updated guidance should appear first
Unless we hear to the
contrary before this, it is still
Welfare grooms only (see post of 15th
Until then, keep safe,
keep practicing all the precautions we
have got used to and get the jab when
Appointment text number change.
The virtual mobile number that is
used with our booking software for appointment text
messages is being changed from today the 26th
February to 07451 287670. Please update it in your
phone contacts if you have saved us with the old
number 07624 800500.
All texts from us in relation to appointments will
be from the new number. Please don't reply to any
sent before the 27th February or start a new text
after to us using the old number - we won't get it.
Just like the old number, the new number can't be
used for voice calls as it's actually an email to
text/text to email facility provided by a company
called TextMagic. Over the past few months we have
heard that a few of our customers could no longer
reply to our text messages as the old number was
changed by the downstream provider to originate from
the Isle of Man. We hadn't been made aware of this
change by TextMagic, but after enquiring about it
they have confirmed that some mobile operators treat
it as an international number, requiring you to have
international texting as a feature of your mobile
phone package to be able to reply. As we are
changing to a new UK origin number, that should no
longer be a problem.
Depending on when you make an appointment with us
you will receive an appointment confirmation text
and upto two reminders for your appointment. During
the current Level 4 plus lockdown, our appointment
confirmation and reminder messages changed and
require you to confirm, cancel or postpone your
appointment. If confirming you are attending, you
only need to do this once, but please let us know if
this changes prior to arriving for your appointment.
We are re-opening for Welfare Grooms only.
It has been established this week
that we are not legally required to close so will be
RE-OPENING from Tuesday 19th January. But, as we are
still in Level 4 plus lockdown and non-essential
journeys are illegal, ONLY WELFARE GROOMING IS
PERMITTED to relieve discomfort, distress or
suffering due to issues such as:
General coat matting, coat build up/mats around
eyes/ears/paws/pads/high friction areas/sanitary
areas, skin conditions/irritation, infestation,
excessive nail length.
Please be aware that where matting is concerned,
this will almost always involve close clipping to
remove and it is a very high possibility that your
dog's coat may be much shorter than you might
previously have requested or expected!
Grooming for purely cosmetic or aesthetic reasons is
NOT permitted during lockdown and the onus is on you
as your dog's owner to determine if it ESSENTIAL
under the current restrictions for you have your dog
groomed AND to travel.
If you have an existing appointment with us or would
like to make a WELFARE appointment it is imperative
you read and understand all that follows below, as
you will be required to confirm this before arrival
at your appointment. If you arrive for an
appointment and we have not received a "Confirming
appointment" message, or it is determined on arrival
your dog does NOT meet any of the WELFARE groom
criteria, we CANNOT accept your dog for grooming.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR EXISTING OR NEW
APPOINTMENTS TO BE CARRIED OUT DURING LOCKDOWN:
When you receive a text concerning your appointment,
you MUST reply using one of the following three
We take this to mean you will be attending your
appointment AND you have assessed and determined
that your dog definitely needs a WELFARE groom, or
it is highly likely that it will become a WELFARE
groom within two weeks of your appointment date and
cannot be postponed for four or more weeks.
We understand your circumstances may change, or you
do not want to/cannot travel during the current
lockdown restrictions for whatever reason. If you
cannot justify now that your dog would be a WELFARE
groom for an existing appointment booked before
lockdown, please cancel and rebook at a later date
when restrictions have eased again. There are no
late cancellation fees to pay during this period.
We will automatically rebook your appointment as
near to the same day/time, which will be around 4
weeks later. Please feel free to request a day/time
even further on if you wish and we will try to do
this as near as we can.
If the lockdown is extended beyond the end of
January, then the above appointment text replies
will be required for the duration. Hopefully, when
the lockdown has been lifted and travel restrictions
eased, we should be able to carry out normal
