I have had a few emails this week of concern about lock down of areas due to covid 19. We just have to use our common sense, and follow what we are told by the UK government. From what I can make out the lockdown of certain areas will be for 2 weeks at a time.
Norfolk is not under lockdown, it could however change as they have said it is of an area of concern. During the last few weeks many people have flocked to the Norfolk coastlines, which has apparently caused an increase if you listen to main media. Locally Ive not heard anything.
If it happens then we will have to just meet it head on and deal with it.
As we have a vulnerable family member we are not allowed anyone in our home except for carers.
We have managed our Pug visits in the grooming parlour, but they are a small breed, and do not take up any space. We are aware we can not do the same for a Vizsla litter visit. Also because weather is unpredictable coming into autumn and winter, we could not do a visit outside in the pouring rain. So we are having built a large summer house for all future Vizsla visits. We will be able to put a large pen up on the day for babies to go into, and you can view them from outside the pen. I can also display in here our collars, leads, snuffle mats etc so you can buy products when you visit.
I call for common sense with new enquirers who are reading on the KC website see the mother of the puppies before birth. In normal circumstances this would be apt, but we are not living in normal times, and lots of the information on the main website was not updated for covid guidelines.
To confirm I can not make waiting lists for litters of 2021, because we need to get my Sassy litter born first, and then when people miss out from this litter they will be prioritised then for Izzy litter, and this is how Ive always done it. So one litter at a time. We plan on having 2 litters in 2021 if all things go to plan. But everything can change again if we all go into lockdown at any time. It is extremely difficult for breeders to plan at the moment.
