Corona Virus Measures

Doing our bit to stop the spread

The corona virus outbreak is effecting us all in many ways, and here at Shooting The Dog we are taking measures to keep ourselves and our customers safe.

As of the week commencing Monday 23rd March we will only be opening the shop on Thursday, Friday and Saturday each week. Our normal opening hours will be in place on these days: 9:30 am – 4pm on Thursday and Friday, and 10 am – 3pm on Saturday.

Our shop is very small, so we ask that if you do visit, please only come in as a maximum of two people at once. If you see a customer in the shop when you arrive then please wait outside until we are free. The more distance we keep between us all, the less likely this horrific virus is likely to spread.

These are the plans at the moment, but may well change, and we will be following government advice.

The Framing Dept.

As many of you will know, Mel the framer is of a certain age; and falls into the “at risk” category. To ensure he keeps well he is, sensibly, following government advice and avoiding social contact as much as possible. This means that ALL framing jobs will be suspended for now.

Jobs we have in the shop awaiting completion, will be completed as and when it is deemed safe to do so. However, if you feel you cannot wait please contact us to arrange collection of your artwork. We will be contacting the customers of outstanding work later today to discuss their options.

We do not take these corona virus measures lightly, but Mel’s welfare is of upmost importance as is that of our customers.

Pet Photography

The pet photography side of things will , for the moment, continue; so if you are interested in having your pet photographed please contact us through the website.

We will have to introduce restrictions on the number of people who attend with the pets for studio shoots, but we will discuss this with you at time of booking. You should also be advised that it may take longer to get your final products to you.
