Corona Virus COVID-19.
Important Notice Update- Your health and safety is important to us.
Scruffy 2 Fluffy Dog Grooming School is committed in helping to contain and delay the spread of Coronavirus in the U.K.
We are taking the Governments advice seriously and will remain closed till further notice!
As you may or may not be aware, the Coronavirus can live on a dogs coat for up to 72 hours, and still be passed onto humans.
(PLEASE DO NOT - stroke other dogs, however tempting it may be).
With the rate of infection and high numbers of death, from this horrible disease, increasing daily, I and my team feel its our responsibility to take the step to protect the welfare of you and your beloved pets, as well as our own welfare, our families and the general public, unfortunately with the ever increasing risks at the moment, the idea of life, far outweighs the need to put anyone in the workplace in danger.
We want to thank all our wonderful clients for their continued support and kind messages, BUT there are still those trying to get us to groom, Please can you refrain from doing this, its not in our hands anymore. Hopefully it wont be too long before we will be allowed to re-open. So.......... in our first ever lock-down, in the UK, and the world, we will try and get as much information to our friends, family and clients on our Facebook page, we are posting videos, and written content, for information on how to take care of your dog at home, as soon as we are able to we will welcome all our lovely dogs and clients back.
Obviously, the welfare of your dogs is a paramount concern for me and my fabulous, hardworking team, its extremely important for the pets health and well-being, that YOU, do everything you can to try and prevent matting at home.
if you are concerned about this and need some help, advice and guidance, please do not hesitate to contact me, by email.
I or one of my team will be happy to give you advice on caring for your dogs coat. so in the mean time, please try to brush thoroughly and regularly to avoid matting.
*Something very important to Consider*
Please DO NOT TRY, using clippers and scissors at home, if you are not confident in doing so. This is a skilled job, and you may run the risk of injuring your dog, and them requiring veterinary attention.
IMPORTANT!! Most Veterinary Surgeons, are only offering emergency operations during this Lock-down, and may not be able to attend to a injured dog, bearing in mind a MINOR INJURY may require antibiotics and stitches.
RIGHT with all that out the way - for those of you who have missed/or have grooming appointments booked with us, over the coming weeks and months, we will be in contact with everyone, individually to re-schedule your dogs grooming appointments.
This will only happen closer to the time we have clearance from the Government, to go back to work, so please bear with us until then and keep safe.
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this has caused and hope this will soon pass.
We hope you and your families are keeping safe and well, take care and I look forward to seeing you all soon!
STAY, HOME, SAVE LIVES, SAVE THE NHS.

DOG GROOMING AND THE 5 WELFARE NEEDS OF THE ANIMAL WELFARE ACT.
The Animal Welfare Act was passed in 2006 and represents the most significant change to animal welfare law in nearly a century. Under this Act owners have a legal duty to meet the five welfare needs of their pets and whilst in our care we as Dog Groomers also share the same responsibility. So, what are the "FIVE NEEDS", and do we make sure they are met.
1. THE NEED FOR A SUITABLE ENVIRONMENT.
You need to make sure your pet has a suitable place to live, providing an appropriate environment, shelter and resting area.If a animal does not have a secure shelter from rain, wind or bad weather or has no bedding, or the wrong kind of bedding, the person responsible for the animal is failing to comply with its need.
Whilst in our care, we will provide a safe, clean and secure environment with suitable ventilation.
2. THE NEED FOR A SUITABLE DIET.
You need to make sure your pet has the appropriate diet to maintain full health and vigour as well as the provision of fresh water at all times. If you provide a animal with food but its not the correct food for their needs, you are failing to meet this need. You may also be failing to meet this need if you provide food which makes a animal obese
Whilst in our care, we will ensure clean, fresh water is always available.
3. THE NEED TO EXHIBIT NORMAL BEHAVIOUR PATTERNS.
This need points to the provision of sufficient space, proper facilities and allowing your pet to exhibit behaviours which are as close as possible to those it would exhibit in the wild. for example, You need to ensure your pet has plenty of opportunity to rest undisturbed when needed, and to play with other friendly dogs or people. they must get the exercise they need to be fit, active and stimulated and opportunity for toileting when required.
Whilst in our care, we make sure dogs have regular toilet breaks and space to exercise.
4.THE NEED TO BE HOUSED WITH, OR APART FROM, OTHER ANIMALS.
You have a responsibility to make sure your pet has the company it needs, including the opportunity to spend time with other dogs and people or kept away from animals that they are fearful of or can lead to aggression You should ensure no pets are left alone for long periods of time or long enough for them to become stressed.
At Scruffy 2 Fluffy Dog Grooming School, we work on a one to one basis, so your pet is never left alone or housed with other animals they are familiar with.
5. THE NEED TO BE PROTECTED FROM PAIN, SUFFERING, INJURY OR DISEASE.
You need to ensure that pain, disease or injury are prevented or that if they are not preventable, that any pain, disease or injury is quickly diagnosed and treated.
if you are responsible for a animal and its in pain and you chose to ignore it, and fail to seek treatment you are neglecting the welfare of the animal, and you are breaking the law.
At Scruffy 2 Fluffy Dog Grooming School we undertake a health check on each dog and safe handling of animals that enter our salon. We maintain a clean salon and ensure all our equipment is PAT Tested. We also keep a fully stocked First Aid kit and have completed training in Animal First Aid.
ALL Dog Owners have a duty of care and are required by law to ensure the welfare needs of their animals are met.
We have a continuous Flexible all year round student enrolments available, subject to space, we do try our best to accommodate our learners.
We appreciate your interest in Scruffy 2 Fluffy Private Grooming School and look forward to hearing from you.
