ITV News – Puppy Yoga

ITV News Logo

On Monday 03 July 2023, Jenny spoke on ITV News about an emerging trend – “puppy yoga”.

Puppy yoga is the practice where young puppies roam around a yoga class with pictures widely shared on social media. The classes are also marketed as being good for mental health.

All is not as it seems at face value though. ITV News spent months going undercover at puppy yoga studios and found numerous basic welfare requirements not being met. Some of the issued raised in the ITV investigation include:

  • The puppies being forced to interact with humans
  • They often do not have easy access to water
  • They are over worked, leading to exhaustion
  • The rooms are very hot and bright

As a Kennel Club assured breeder, Jenny was asked to give her views on the practice. Jenny completely disagrees with the practice.

“We stopped selling puppies out of shop windows years and years ago in this country and essentially were just putting them back in a shop window, it’s called a yoga class, and it’s just totally wrong.”

Jennies full response can be seen here.
