MAN’S BEST FRIEND: By the South Lincs Centre of Jerry Green Dog Rescue
Rain has had a bit of bad luck lately, he has had visits cancel on him, reserves dropped and even some people that have left him waiting. This poor guy is in need of some good luck now... there has to be a home for this gorgeous fellow out there.
Rain is a very friendly one-year-old husky, with one blue eye and one brown eye. He would love a home where he gets to go on lots of walks. Ideally he would like someone who has had experience or has knowledge of the husky breed. He is always very happy meeting new people and loves to get lots of cuddles.
As he was a stray we have no history on Rain. He is very clean in his kennel so possibly could be house trained.
Ideally he needs a home where someone can build up to him being left as he does appear to love human company.
Rain has been socialising with dogs while being with us at the centre and enjoys their company when out on lead for walks but would not want to share his house with another dog. He would need to be the only dog in the home so he can have all the attention for himself.
Rain would be suitable to go into either an adult home or one with older children, who have previously been around bigger dogs. If you think you have the perfect home for Rain, please call our team on 01205 260546.
Therena’s training tip: Getting your dog to lay down
Asking a dog to lay down may seem like a fairly simple thing but if your dog doesn’t know what you mean, they won’t understand what to do.
Method 1: Take a yummy treat and hold it near your dog’s nose, move your hand slowly downwards, don’t go too fast. The idea is that your dog will stick to the treat like Velcro and follow the movement with their head. When you get to the floor, hold your hand there and hopefully your dog will lie down. If they don’t; try moving the treat forwards slightly to encourage your dog’s head to follow the motion. Once they have laid down; give them lots of praise and the yummy treat. This can be done with your dog in a sitting or standing position. Come back next week for the second method.
