Hi there - bit of an odd question for you all.

Do any breeders offer the chance for people to come and spend time with puppies/their collection of dogs for a fee?

To give a bit of context, my girlfriend's bday is coming up - we both love dogs and I'm trying to find something nice we
could do involving some friendly dogs! She's a massive fan of corgi's particularly. I'm aware of a couple of dog cafes in
the UK but they're mostly a little too far from us.

So I'm just wondering if there's another way I can arrange for us to spend some time with some friendly dogs (in a dream
world, a few corgis) on her birthday, it would make her really happy. Any suggestions much appreciated!

Thanks

Ed

Volunteer at your local shelter. Most of them are happy to have someone walk or play with the dogs. Or clean kennels.

You could contact breeders within your range to see if they would welcome you on this basis.

You can always ask. Worst that will happen is the breeder will say, "No."

Many shelters welcome volunteers to walk and play with the dogs. And it's probably free!

You could try asking some breeders, but if I were a breeder I honestly don't think I would welcome a couple of strangers into my home to play with my dogs. It would kind of be like strangers asking to come in and play with your children! It's just going to depend on who you ask, really.

if you are considering purchasing a corgi in the future, and you have an honest interest in the dogs, that might help you get your foot in the door. However, if it is just wishful thinking, I agree with the shelter idea... and many shelters might accommodate a little more interaction for a nice donation.
