The Mutty Professor Shop

We have a shop premises you can visit at 122 West Street, BS33LT.

If you need to contact us, please call our shop number and a member of staff will assist you. If you cannot get through to us, feel free to leave a text or email and we will reply as quick as possible. Please do not leave a voicemail.

Covid Policy: 2 in at a time. Please use hand sanitiser provided

Please book your harness fitting appointment here, priority is given to those who have booked an appointment.

If your dog is nervous of other dogs and/or people please consider whether bringing them instore is best for your dog and those around them. We can recommend and fit harnesses from pictures and you can exchange if not right.

FAULTY HARNESS OR LEAD? Please read this post and check it has definitely not been chewed.

HARNESS, MUZZLE AND COAT FITTINGS by appointment: BOOK HERE!
Pay a booking fee which will be deducted from the cost of the harness purchased. If a harness isn’t purchased, then the booking fee is kept. This is because we have historically had some people take up staff time and knowledge trying on multiple harnesses, only to then openly state they will purchase the harness in a different colour on Amazon! This fee aims to ensure people do not take up our time and keep others waiting if they are unsure whether they even want to purchase our harnesses. Our ranges are so extensive now, it is highly unusual for us to have a design that does not work for a dog’s shape. We can order in colours/sizes that are out of stock.

If you do not book a harness fitting then you will need to wait until the next free slot. A £5 fee will need to be paid before fitting begins, with the same conditions as those who book online. We are now limiting harness fittings to one at a time in store so to reduce waiting times for people outside or so the extra staff member can attend to the phone or deliveries. We may make exceptions should we be unusually quiet. However, we feel the shop is too small for two fittings to be happening at one time. Booking online is advisable, as on some days we non-stop do harness fittings.

You can either opt for a hands off harness fitting (where we talk you through it) or have us fit it but with owners maintaining social distance throughout. Your choice should be based on your dog’s emotional welfare (whether you fumbling with a harness for the first time is less stressful than them being handled by a stranger 1-2 metres away from their primary care giver).

Please keep your dog waiting in the car (especially if they are puppy or if they are sensitive/reactive) and check we are ready to do a fitting for you before bringing them in.
