Providing a dog that forever home
Provide a Dog a Home
There is something immensely satisfying in taking in a rescue dog, in many cases someone else has either been unable to cope or it had became a burden or a nuisance. In some cases it’s because of a marriage breakup, bereavement or for allergy or medical reasons.
The decision to take on a dog should never ever be taken lightly. The whole family must buy into the idea. You need to consider the size of dog you would like to take on, what you would like to do with the dog e.g. have an active dog that will play willingly, happy to go on long walks, or a homely laid back breed of dog that will happily sit for hours by the fire, and only require gentle exercise.
Once you have decided that you are going to re-home a dog you must prepare the home and garden before the arrival. Remember your new dog will be ‘stressed’, worried and uncertain of you, your family and the new surroundings and environment. He/she must have time to adjust. By taking on a rescue dog, you will be taking on his/her past too, and this could be an unhappy one.
Helping Dog Paws will be with you every step of the way, making that first contact with the dog and yourself to settling the dog into your home. Once the dog is placed with you in your home we will continue to support you with training tips and techniques.
