rosenoir I opened a thread on this subject yesterday, we concluded that if somebody wore a fur coat into your home, you could catch something from it unless the owner was self isolating, the same as you. our DD strokes her dog, touches her nose and paws, so we assume that the virus could be on her as Dd isn’t isolating.
It wasn’t anything to do with a dog harbouring the virus and being a carrier.
NO no no, dogs are quite safe to touch and walk, There have been people dumping dogs,--and cats because of rumours I have cats and stroke them as usual, i don't have a dog now,but if i did i would still stroke here and cuddle her and walk her
Does anyone know for sure whether dogs can transfer the virus? I have a dog and have a dog walker who usually walks him and keeps him with her for a few hours whenever I ask. I live on my own and before all this I used to go out frequently and did not like to leave the dog on his own for more than a couple of hours. However, now with all this virus my kids tell me that I should stop this routine as dogs may be able to transfer the virus. But, I was thinking that my dog walker also needs the money so was wondering whether to keep her on but less often. I am self isolating so not going out but do not think I can offer the dog as much excercise as the Walker can.
