Why should I adopt a dog?

Adopting a dog can be a rewarding experience for a number of reasons. We could name a thousand, but we settled for top 5 reasons we think you should adopt a dog.

  1. Saving a life: Adopting a dog from a shelter or rescue organisation can literally save a life. Many dogs are surrendered to shelters every year due to reasons beyond their control, such as changes in their owner’s circumstances. Adopting a dog gives them a second chance at life and a loving home.
  2. Companionship: Dogs are known for their loyalty and companionship. They can be great friends and provide emotional support. They can also encourage you to be more active, as they require regular exercise and playtime.
  3. Health benefits: Studies have shown that owning a dog can have physical and mental health benefits. For example, dog owners may have lower blood pressure, decreased stress levels, and increased social interaction.
  4. Cost-effective: Adopting a dog from a shelter or rescue organisation is less expensive (or in our case free we just ask you to help with transport costs) than purchasing a dog from a breeder or pet store. Our adoption covers the cost of vaccinations, spaying/neutering, and other basic medical care. We also send you home with enough food for a few days so you don’t have to rush to buy more.
  5. Helping the community: Adopting a dog from a shelter or rescue organisation helps support animal welfare in your community. It also helps reduce the number of animals that are euthanized due to overcrowding in shelters.

Overall, adopting a dog can be a fulfilling experience that not only benefits you, but also helps animals in need. If you are still not convinced check out our success stories, and how these dogs have changed their owners lives.

How to welcome my new rescue dog?

The most important thing when welcoming a new dog into your home is to provide a stable environment for your new family member. Make sure to give the dog time to get acquainted with his or her new home at their own pace. It is a good idea to decide before your new dog arrives, where to place a dog bed and dog bowls so that once your new dog has learned where to find these essential items, they are not moved.

Of course, you should make sure to always have water available for your dog and for the first few days you should take the dog outside often. We house train all of our dogs but even older and perfectly house trained dogs can have accidents because of the stress of moving to a new home

What kind of training has the dog received?

When considering adopting a dog, it’s important to know what kind of training the dog has received. Here are some basic training areas we make sure we cover with all our dogs:

  1. Basic obedience training: This includes commands such as sit, stay, come, and heel. A dog that has received basic obedience training is typically easier to manage and more well-behaved.
  2. House training: This refers to the process of teaching a dog to eliminate in the appropriate location, such as outside or on a designated puppy pad.
  3. Socialization: This involves exposing the dog to a variety of people, animals, and situations to help them become more comfortable and confident in different environments.
  4. Leash training: This involves teaching the dog to walk calmly on a leash without pulling or jumping.
  5. Behavioral training: This may include addressing specific problem behaviors, such as aggression, anxiety, or excessive barking.

When considering adopting a dog, it’s important to ask the shelter or rescue organisation about the dog’s training history. A dog that has received training is typically easier to manage and more well-behaved, but it’s also possible to train a dog if it has not received much training. If you are adopting a dog that needs more training, it’s essential to work with a professional dog trainer or behaviourist to ensure that you are using the right techniques and addressing any specific issues. Ask us more, we can tell you about each of our dogs.
