Picking mine up in 4 weeks time. So heartbroken but glad she will have her litter mates to socialise with until we’re able to get her. X

I'm sure they will. Puppies still need homes!

BVA do say they will review their advice if we go longer than three weeks

Our new puppy is due to come home mid-May. Breeder hasn't been in touch about what will happen if we are still in lockdown. Puppies are KC registered.

We're getting ours end of May. If things haven't improved the breeder is happy to keep the pup as long as needed and do toilet training/vaccinations/socialisation etc. I guess that's the benefit of a decent breeder rather than a puppy farm.

Lots of "waiting to hear from DEFRA". This was written on the 27th under an assumption of a three week lockdown. I wonder how the advice will change.

As an aside, someone I know got a large dog a couple of weeks ago but lives in council flats with a no pets rule - how did they manage to do that?

I thought anyone selling dogs would do a home visit/make sure the new owners have permission to keep them?
If they're told they can't keep it, what happens next?

Good advice, and also sad.

I am seen many local fb posts where people think this lockdown is an idea time to rashly purchase a puppy. This might help prevent this.

On the downside many puppy farmed pups will not survive this. Hopefully some of these businesses will not survive either.

Clear guidance from the KC saying that new puppies should not be collected from the breeders during the next few weeks.

It is not essential travel
