The Dog House patio is open 1pm-close Monday- Friday and all day Saturday.
Hair of the Dog Barber & Pub Inc. Temporary business changes, to ensure we are protecting our staff and customers, and working within regulatory best practices.
Our primary commitment, is to provide a safe environment for our barbers, customers and community. Taking into account social distancing measures, PPE, changes to services and increased cleaning and sanitization, to allow us to safely operate. We will be implementing changes to operations, shop hours and services in the interim which we have highlighted below.
Appointments Only & Limited Services - In the interim of reopening, we have made the decision to provide Men’s haircuts only. We will be operating on an appointment only basis and not accepting walk-ins until further notice. We are bookable via our webpage: www.hotdbarber.ca, Facebook and Instagram book now functions. Appointments will be scheduled for 45 minutes, allowing for the booked service as well as time for the barber to clean and sanitize tools and their work station, prior to the next customer.
Social Distancing/Shop Occupancy/Shop Hours:
As we reopen we will be limiting the shop to 3 barbers per day, to allow for a safe distance between work stations, for both customers and barbers. Due to our reducing shop occupancy to accommodate social distancing, we will not be accepting children's cuts. We’ve based this decision on the reasoning that we can not allow unaccompanied minors on premise, as customers are required to arrive alone for their appointment. Our business hours will change to the following:
Monday to Friday 10am-7pm
Pre-screening yourself is essential to our operations, for both customers and barbers. If you have any symptoms or illness, please do not book an appointment, and reschedule as applicable, as we do not want to risk further shut downs. We will also be making assessments on your arrival, and will hold the right to turn you away if we deem you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19 and/or other flu/cold bugs.
Barbers will have access to face masks, gloves and disposable aprons to use while providing services, as well as, the time to thoroughly clean and sanitize tools and work areas between customers. Customers will also have access to a sani-station upon arrival.
What to expect on arrival
We ask clients to arrive as close to appointment time as possible, and where possible, we ask that you arrive without jackets and other items that require hanging. Please knock on the door and will let you in the shop when your chair is ready. There will be access to hand sanitizer on arrival and your barber will guide you to your chair. Customers are welcome to wear their mask in the shop but will be required to take it off for the service.
We will provide in chair drink service if required. In the interim, we will be offering domestic and craft tall boys only.
Once the haircut is complete, the barber will escort you to the front desk for payment. Preference is to card payments, as to avoid cash handling. Other contactless options are available (Gift cards, Etransfer).
As this is a trying and strange time for all, we ask for patience from our clients, as and when we reopen and adjust to these times. If you have any suggestions or advice, please gladly share it with the management.
