Golden Retrievers Deliver Beer To Quarantined People

Golden Retrievers Deliver Beer To Quarantined People

Buddy and Barley are adorable puppies who are also known in Huntington as delivery dogs. During the coronavirus pandemic, they deliver beer to their citizens at their home addresses.

After their owners Karen and Mark closed the doors of their brewery due to the coronavirus, they had to figure out a way to continue delivering beer to their customers with as little risk of infection as possible. The only logical solution was to hire their pets.

It seems to have been an ideal decision because customers adore their dogs.

“We get a lot of delivery requests. People really like Buddy and Barley. When they show up so cheerful and playful in front of customers’ doors, they bring a smile to everyone’s face, and that’s what people need in these times,” Karen said.

For Buddy and Barley, the owners put a collar around their necks on which beer cans hang and then drive them to the delivery address. When they arrive at their destination, the puppies can’t wait to take the beer to people.

Karen also revealed that because of the dogs, they managed to make closer contact with customers, but that they still manage to maintain a social distance.

Still, he admits sales revenue has declined despite new fur suppliers.

“We earn enough, just enough to pay the bills,” she said.
