Lenny needs a specific type of home

Lenny has been having lots of training sessions over the past few weeks to help him feel more comfortable around handling, as he can be very worried about vet visits and other everyday handling exercises.

He is incredibly clever doing really well, but for this reason his new owner’s need to be experienced dog owners and be savvy with training dogs, so they can follow a training plan set out by the team.

He may even like a home that would like to do other training classesto keep his brain nice and active!

Lenny is looking for a specific type of home.
Lenny is looking for a specific type of home.

He would like an adult-only home with a maximum of two people... and he isa bit of a ladies man so if there are any men, he may need a few extra visits at the centre to get to know them.

He would also like to be the only pet in the home, but enjoys his walks and would be happy to walk with other calm dogs.

He can find visitors a little overwhelming so would prefer there to be no visiting children and a low visitor load – the team can help discuss how to introduce visitors.

Online dog show

Our popular dog show is back but with a festive twist this time... and it’s online!

Join us on Saturday, November 28, 11am-8.30pmon our Facebook page to liven up what will hopefully be the last weekend of lockdown.

Gran prize is a beautiful Grey Manhattan Box Bed (in your choice of size) for your pooch to laze Christmas away in, very kindly donated by our wonderful friends over at @petslovescruffs!

We will be posting every hour from 11am, until 7pm and there will be one class per post.

We are asking for a suggested donation of £1 per entry, to help support our dogs during this very difficult time.

You can make this donation via text, or via our website, and all the information needed to do this will be in the post for each class.

Each class will be open for one hour, until the next class is launched. To enter, simply make your donation and comment on the post.

At the end of each hour, we will judge the class and first, second and third place will be announced.

The last class at 7.15pm will be to decide our ‘Best in Show’ and all the winners of the previous classes will be automatically entered into this class, just as in our usual fun dog shows, but for this class you guys are in charge.

We will ask our Facebook followers to ‘like’ their favourite entry and they will become the champ.

The Best in Show will be announced at 8.30pm and will win the amazing grand prize.

The Best Biscuit Catcher Class is always so much fun so it’s back again.

For this class, you just need to throw a treat up in the air, and snap a photo just before your pooch catches it... this will lead to some hilarious shots and we can’t wait to see them.

We’re also introducing a little bit of Christmas cheer with our final class of the day, Most Festive Pooch... simply choose the most festive picture of your dog (doesn’t have to be this year) to be in with the chance of a rosette.

Training tip

Remember that rewards can be different things for different dogs. Work out what is important for your dog; it may be your attention, a game with their favourite ball or a piece of hot dog or chicken. When you are teaching your dog something new, use a high value treat to really get them motivated.
