The ‘New Normal’ for Lockdown Puppies

The ‘New Normal’ For Lockdown Puppies

Time in Lockdown

Many families will have used the additional time at home to settle a new furry addition into their lives, a puppy. The elongated periods of time spent in doors have provided an ideal setting, to introduce a new pet to the family, in order to gain familiarity with surroundings, build relationships with family members, implement routines and commence puppy training.

Throughout the last few weeks we have seen significant shifts in lockdown rules and regulations within the United Kingdom. As a result of this many people are keen to transition to a ‘new normal’ including routines such as returning to work and visiting close family and friends.  

When you put the excitement and eagerness to find a new normality aside, you must take a moment to consider the impact that this huge shift in routine will have on your puppy. The contrasting change to you and your household not being present as often, could cause your puppy to become anxious and disrupt them from their existing routines.

Helping your puppy overcome any anxiety is extremely important but preventing it from occurring in the first place is even better. Scamps & Champs Chichester can help by providing regular puppy visits and dog walks and we can even start now before you go back to work!

How Our Puppy Sitting Services Can Help

If you like many others are planning to return to work, but you have a puppy that you’re worried about leaving at home. Our puppy sitting services at Scamps & Champs Chichester are here to help the transition run smoothly.

A puppy will be familiarising itself with their new home so it’s important to keep them in that environment until they are used to going elsewhere and work up to any alterations in routine gradually. At Scamps and Champs Chichester we can visit your puppy in the comfort of your own home, fuss them, let them out to the toilet, feed them, keep them company and provide short walks if your puppy has had their second vaccination.

When we look after your beloved puppy, we will ensure that all of your pet’s usual routines are maintained, with additional loving companionship included. This will benefit your puppy and help them stay relaxed, ultimately maintaining familiar routines and reducing anxiety. Having Scamps and Champs Chichester to look after your puppy can assist their well-being, routines and social skills, which are all crucial elements of a puppy’s initial training. It also offers peace of mind to you and reassures you that whilst you go back to work, your puppy still has company and fun at home.

How Our Dog Walking Services Can Reduce Puppy Anxiety

Exercise is essential for any pet and a vital part of their daily exercise, especially a young pup. Maintaining your puppy’s daily walks is so important. Scamps and Champs Chichester offer and deliver a premium dog walking service.

One of our animal care experts can come to your home and walk your dog for you. We ensure they have an engaging, fun and stimulating walk out in the fresh air, impacting them positively.

Walking your puppy is so important, especially if they are showing signs of anxiety due to lockdown and the current lifting of lockdown. Walking your puppy daily is crucial because, when your dog is exercised efficiently, they are simply healthier and happier.

If you are at all worried about leaving your pets whilst you return to work Scamps and Champs Chichester can come and check on your pets whilst you are out for additional piece of mind.
