Rehabilitation

Our highly trained staff team’s skills combined with the invaluable services of our animal behavioural consultants allow us to help animals in our care with a range of issues including nervousness, aggression, socialisation (with people and/or other animals) and separation anxiety.

We use a range of techniques to re-train behaviour and build trust to help our rescues become the happy souls they all long to be.
 
We plan to offer our adopters and their new pets post-adoption behavioural training in the near future to ensure they have the best chance of a long and happy life together.  Please visit this page again for more information shortly.

Looking for a dog?

Looking at our web site you may be forgiven in thinking that we do not have many dogs here. Our rescue kennels always run at maximum capacity and we have a waiting list of dogs needing our help. When a dog comes into our care it has to go through a process.
Looking at our web site you may be forgiven in thinking that we do not have many dogs here. Our rescue kennels always run at maximum capacity and we have a waiting list of dogs needing our help. When a dog comes into our care it has to go through a process. Firstly most coming into our care are not fully vaccinated and have often not been to see a vet recently or treated for worms or fleas. A new dog needs to go into our isolation area whilst it is treated for parasites, vaccinated and usually neutered. Whilst in there they are given an all over health check by our vet and any issues such as dental, skin or mobility problems are addressed. Whilst in there our carers carry out initial behaviour assessments. Once they have passed this process they then move into one of our two re-homing blocks where further behaviour and socilaisation assessments begin. This includes how they are around other dogs, how they react to cats, livestock, strangers/visitors and how they are when walking on and off lead and basic commands. Only when we feel that we have a good overall picture of the dog and viable information that we can pass on to potential new owners and only then will they be put on our web site and given a mention here on our facebook page.
Many dogs are spotted by visitors to our Sanctuary and simply never make it to the web site. Some dogs have bigger issues and the training/socialastion period is taking longer than usual so they can be with us for longer without actually being on the web site. We have a behaviourist who visits to help us address issues before the dog is put up for adoption.
Although we ask people who are surrendering their, or a relatives, dog to fill out a disclaimer form noting as much information as they can all rescue dogs come with baggage! Some people are not entirely truthful with what they tell us and in some cases - such as when an owner has passed away - no information is known. We put on our sleuthing hats and see what we can find out from vets and via microchips BUT the only information that we can truthfully give you is what we have experienced here first hand with the dog. This is why we take great care over the assessment period.
If you are currently looking for a rescue dog it is always worth visiting the Sanctuary you may see the ideal dog that is still under assessment
