While the CDC has recommended that dogs social distance there is no scientific data proving dogs can give COVID-19 to you or other pets. As a precaution dogs will not be allowed to intermingle and will be kept in kennels. Do to the unknown nature of this virus we ask that you sign this release form stating that you understand that having your pet groomed may put them or yourselves at risk for exposure. We will be taking every precaution from wearing masks and using an antiviral disinfectant to clean our grooming equipment after every dog. We are also keeping our doors locked and will be picking up your pet outside the salon.
