Learn more about our story and origin.

Founded by animal lovers from a  Psychology background, we are passionate about the positive effects pets have on our mental health and wellbeing. Studies have shown the simple act of stroking a dog reduces stress and lowers blood pressure. Our classes boost serotonin levels through an experience full of yoga, puppy cuddles and puppy playtime.  We absolutely love seeing the joy and smiles on everyones faces as they leave our puppy yoga session feeling less stressed and content. Our success has been proven through seeing familiar faces as they join us again for more sessions. 

After originating in Liverpool, we have listened to the demand and have now expanded into more cities; Leeds, Manchester, Nottingham, Sheffield & Newcastle. This allows us to continue pursuing our passion and bring about these positive effects beyond the Liverpool region.

Puppy Play-Time

The class begins with 15 minutes of puppy playtime. The puppies will be very excited as it is likely to be their first time in a big room with tons of attention on them! Lots of toys are provided so please play and engage with the puppies as much you can to ensure the puppies have the best introduction to the world.  Everybody should get the chance to have some puppy cuddles, and feel free to take pictures!


After 15 minutes of puppy playtime, you get to unwind and relax your mind in a 45 minute yoga class. During this class the puppies will be free to play around you so please feel free to pause the yoga to cuddle a puppy if one approaches you!

Puppy Cuddles

During this last 15 minutes of the class there will be a final opportunity for puppy cuddles. All puppies are different; some may be in a playful mood whilst others may be asleep on you, or have private naps in their dog beds. 


Our classes provide the perfect environment to introduce puppies into the real world and will hugely contribute to their socialisation process. The friendliest dogs come from well-socialised homes. Our classes are amazing at helping with the puppy’s socialisation process. Since the puppies are around 8 weeks old and about to go to their forever homes, this is a great way to introduce them to the real-life world! We receive plenty of positive feedback from puppy owners who can noticeably see the boost in confidence in the puppies after attending a class. 

The physical and psychological benefits of puppy yoga will leave you feeling stronger, de-stressed, and full of happiness. Regular practice of yoga is great for building strength and cognitive functions.


Physical Benefits

The relaxation techniques incorporated in yoga can lessen chronic pain such as lower back pain, arthritis, and headaches.

Other physical benefits include:

  • Increased flexibility, 

  • Increased muscle strength and tone

  • Maintaining a balanced metabolism

  • Improved respiration, energy, and vitality. 

Psychological Benefits

Regular yoga practice creates mental clarity and calmness; increases body awareness, relieves chronic stress and relaxes the mind. The addition of puppies will further boost serotonin levels and help:

  • Relieve depression and anxiety.

  • Reduce stress and build stress resilience

Puppy Interactions

Animals can serve as a source of comfort and support. Therefore, the additional interaction with puppies  will decrease levels of cortisol (a stress-related hormone) while increasing the release of oxytocin, helping to:


  • Relieve depression and anxiety.

  • Reduce stress and build stress resilience

Combined Effects

The combined effects of yoga and puppies means our classes improve mental health by providing a relaxing, stress reducing experience. While the puppy cuddles improve our own well-being,  we are also helping to socialise the puppies, moulding them into perfect family dogs
