MAN'S BEST FRIEND: Do you just dream of having your own mini trio?
These three cuties are looking for a home that they can call their own. Meet Blaze, Star and Mindy... they are everything you could wish for and more.
They are looking for a home all together where they can be given all the love in the world. Blaze is a six-year-old Chihuahua, Star is a two-year-old Chihuahua and Mindy is an 18-month-old Chihuahua cross. They are looking for a home where someone is around most of the time.
If you would like to know any more information about these three sweeties then please ring the South Lincolnshire Centre on 0125260546 or email on email@example.com.
Do you have any bits lying around you would be able to donate?
We have a few events coming up in the coming weeks and are appealing for anything that we could possibly use on our tombola. If you have any unused dog toys/leads/collars/harnesses or even just gift items that we can use then please drop them off at our centre: Jerry Green Dog Rescue, Marsh Lane, Algarkirk, Boston PE20 2BB.
Or you can help out our current residents a little bit by donating some tasty treats or hot dogs. We are also running very low on dog meat so would be very grateful for any donations to help the dogs. If you are unable to get down to the centre then feel free to pop the items in to one of our collection bins, located at Rookes Pet Products in Spalding and Morrisons in Pinchbeck.
This week we are going to teach your dog how to play the swaps game which helps dogs drop things you didn't want them to get hold of.
Start by getting your dog to pick up a favourite toy and once the dog has come over, offer the dog a treat close to their nose (so they can smell it). Once your dog has dropped the toy you can give them the treat.
Once your dog drops the toy each time you can start cueing the word ‘swap’ or ‘drop’ so that you don’t need to offer the treat first and you can then just reward them once they have just dropped the toy. You can use this cue word the next time they run off with your favourite shoes.
