He said: ‘It was a bit of a strange sight. She came out the door trying to spray the dog and when the dog ran off, she started spraying her head, legs and feet.
‘It was really funny. It was just one of those weird situations.
‘I’ve no idea why she thought spraying her dog would make any difference. It didn’t even go inside.’
After she had finished disinfecting herself and her dog, Connah says the customer headed back in the shop to finish her grocery shopping.

The woman’s pristine pooch remained waiting outside for her and left with her five minutes later when she exited the store.
In stitches by what he had witnessed, Connah uploaded the video to Facebook where it has been shared almost 500 times.
He said: ‘The whole thing lasted less than a minute. I’m not sure if anyone else saw it.
‘I couldn’t stop laughing.
‘I put the video on SnapChat and had twenty replies from people saying ‘What the hell is she doing. It was baffling.’
Can dogs pass on coronavirus to their owners?
Fewer than 50 animals worldwide have been diagnosed with coronavirus and dogs are the least susceptible to getting it.
In line with public health guidance, you should wash your hands before and after being around or handling animals or their food.
In theory, the fur on pets can act as infection-carrying surfaces and so even if they don’t catch coronavirus, they may still spread it.
If they come into contact with a human who has Covid-19, a pet may carry the virus around on their fur, paws, tail or face – and could therefore infect other humans who stroke, hold or feed them. The droplets could live on their bodies for up to 72 hours.
However, according to the Government website, there is no evidence that coronavirus passes between animals or that pets transmit the virus to humans.
Any animals that have tested positive for coronavirus have been infected by a human.
There is no evidence that you need to wash your pets to control the spread of coronavirus.
Only use products on your pets that are approved for use on animals.
It is rare for an animal to contract coronavirus, and they tend to show only mild symptoms and recover within a few days.
