Animal owners and businesses dealing with animals – Covid-19 advice

Pet care

The government has published some guidance about looking after animals during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

If you’re self-isolating you shouldn’t go out to walk your dog. You’ll need to ask someone to do this on your behalf.  

Professional dog walking. animal rescue charities and businesses who hold animal activity licences for Home Boarding/Dog Day Care/Kennels and Catteries, Pet Shops etc. can still operate with Covid Secure measures in place.  Dog grooming can also take place if its to meet an animal welfare need. 

If you’re a pet owner or work in a pet care business, you may also find this guidance from the Canine and Feline Sector Group useful. It includes some advice about walking someone else’s dog

If you are a business and still have questions after reading the above guidance please contact regulatoryservices@barnsley.gov.uk
