Rescue Dogs – the Basics

Congratulations!! You’re wonderful to welcome a homeless dog into your heart and home. There’s no greater feeling is there?

Some rescues are well behaved, have some (or a lot) of training and just need a refresher course and time to get used to the routine you’ve created. Others have been through a lot, and have the behavior issues that go along with coming from an abusive or traumatic background.

Whatever life your dog had before, his new one starts now.

Here are some of the topics we’ll discuss:

  • Creating a routine
  • Preparing your home for the new arrival
  • What to expect during the first few days/weeks/months
  • Developing trust
  • Common behaviors you may see, and how to deal with them
  • Training – we will tailor it depending on what your dog does and does not already know (housetraining – walking nicely on a leash – sit – come – stay – look at me – biting/nipping – aggressive/reactive behavior)

Problem Behaviors  

The issues mentioned below not only cause your dog anxiety, they can increase the stress levels of everyone living in your home. Does your dog growl or snap when you reach for his toy, treat or food bowl? Do your neighbors regale you with stories of listening to your dog bark all day when you’re out? Does he shake or cower when fireworks go off? Bright side? There are things you can do that will help.

  • Resource guarding (food, toys, bed, people)
  • Separation anxiety (is your dog really anxious or just plain bored?)
  • Stress/anxiety
  • Fear of loud noises, going to the vet, men…
