***** RE OPENING MONDAY 1st JUNE 2020*****
Hello everyone, we hope this finds you well under the current circumstances.
We thought we would bring you up to date with what is happening at the kennels. We have been in discussion with the powers that be at Dumfries and Galloway council and a decision has been made for us to reopen on Monday 1st June to boarders. This will of course be with strict compliance to social distancing and sanitary advice.
The advice from the council included;
“Boarding Establishments are not listed in the regulations and therefore you are able to be open but obeying the strict social distancing rules.”
“Although boarding establishments are allowed to be open, a customer delivering a dog to you may be classed as a non-essential journey if stopped by the Police.” We would ask that you consider this before booking with us.
For a period of time we will be opening for two hours on Sundays purely for PRE-ARRANGED drop offs and pick-ups to accommodate people’s needs as the country re opens. The timings will be from 1000-1100hrs and 1500-1600hrs only.
There will be strict social distancing steps that we will inform you of on any future bookings. These will include payments which we would prefer to be made via card and not accepting your own bedding, bowls or leads to be left here.
We appreciate this will be challenging but we hope you understand the need for us to ensure the safety of you, us and our family.
If you have any concerns please call us on 01659 66553 and we will be happy to discuss it with you.
Take care and we hope to see you soon,
Tracey and Rob.
