Breeders and coronavirus – advice from the Kennel Club

The Kennel Club has answered a number of questions to support dog breeders through the COVID-19 pandemic. You can read these here:

It covers:

  • I have a litter of puppies due. What is the advice about visiting families?

  • How can people socialise their puppies at this time?

  • We were planning a litter but should we now delay this? / is it still ok to breed from your dog?

  • How can I best take care of my puppies and dogs during this period?

  • What should I do if I need to get my puppies vaccinated or microchipped?

  • Is it safe for someone else to take care of dogs that I breed from if I'm taken ill or have to self-isolate?

Government guidance on self-isolation and social distancing is available on the GOV.UK website:
