“Pandemic Puppy, Covid Pup, etc.”


BBC News: When your ‘pandemic puppy’ doesn’t work out https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-55719338

This BBC News report imparts various emotions for dog lovers.

You worry for all the pups development due to the pandemic’s effect on socialisation opportunities.

Anger at new owners naive opinions that a puppy of 12 weeks is not fitting in to their routine.

Frustration that you can’t adopt more dogs (we already have four) into your family.

Deep sadness at adolescent dogs, being traumatised by *dumping (in all its forms), at a time when their personalities are forming. (*put out for sale, rescue, abandoned, adoption, etc).

Traditional indoor puppy training classes are impossible to run in the pandemic due to Coronavirus transmission risks. We had to cancel two blocks of indoor puppy training and next stage classes last autumn.

There has been a demand for one to one owner & pup training however, this is more expensive per pup than traditional classes with 5 or 6 pups present.

For Keighley District:- a solution for you?

We have an honest and well meant offer that can help with the struggles to train and socialise your pandemic puppy or adolescent dog.

Whilst the pandemic is causing restrictions and, if you can be flexible with days, times and frequency.

We can offer Socialisation and Walk Training with older trained dogs for £10 per session (that’s minimum wage plus fuel costs) within Keighley District. A session can be a minimum of 1 hour of paws on the ground with additional transport time included. One hour a week can make a difference.

On Walk Socialisation & Training for your Puppy.


A well developed recall for such a young dog.

Don’t let Coronavirus limit your Pup’s development.

We will socialise them with active mature dogs in a variety of settings to build their confidence and experience of dog etiquette.

They will be taught commands that are important for walk safety. . .

. . . and they will have lots of fun and exercise that builds great stamina.

All as part of our routine dog walking service within Keighley and District where the group walk fee is £10 per hour!

We have safe pandemic handover protocols in place. Please contact us to discuss 😊

A wonderful time for walks but what’s next?


We have Coronavirus handover procedures in place and will walk COVID free and COVID affected household’s dogs separately.

If you are self-isolating in Keighley, due to underlying health reasons or, actual COVID, we will walk your dog alone close to your home for 30 minutes for a price we can both afford. This is a genuine offer to support our community whilst the pandemic is in effect.

See the margins & footers of this webpage for contact details.

Stay safe as we move towards a winter peak of pandemic danger. At the moment dog walking is happening in our beautiful surroundings here in Keighley. Time in the countryside with wonderful dogs and Autumn colours is certainly a treat but I’m prepared for a winter of supporting our Keighley Community as best I can.

Nell helping a newbie Pup..


Nell looks like she’s grinning whilst pup looks ready to leap on Nell.

She chased after Nell who’s tail kept sweeping across her head like a feather duster. We are going a little further afield next week. I think these two will become pals

Taking pups on these early adventures is a privilege. At the end of a Puppy Walk I’ll sit with them on my knee and stroke their ears and paws. This prepares them for being handled whilst you remove things stuck in their fur and for visits to the vets.
