Rescue Dogs Program
When you adopt a rescue dog you have rescued a life.
Rescue dogs are usually a good dog that has fallen on hard times. 70% of all dogs in shelters are there because of presumed behavioral problems by their owners. An even sadder statistic is that 60% of dogs in shelters will be euthanized. Too many of these dogs when adopted are returned to the shelter because they were not properly transitioned into their life at their new home. All of these issues can be lessened with the right kind of education, training, patience and time.
When you adopt a rescue dog you have rescued a life that is getting a rare second chance. They can also have some very special needs to be met so that they can properly adapt to their new life with you. This can be true of dogs coming from a foster or shelter program. I volunteer at a local shelter working with these dogs and have developed a positive training plan that will help you and your rescue buddy succeed. The plan includes addressing the following issues.
- Establishing home behavior boundaries
- Resource Guarding
- Leash Walking
