Brandy and Marley come as a pair and need a home
It looks like Brandy is going to get her happily forever after.
She has been given the all clear by the vets this week following the surgery she had a few weeks ago to remove the large mass she had on her back end. A surgery that was able to happen due to your kind donations.
The vets were able to identify the mass as a soft tissue sarcoma, grade 1, which means it was unlikely to spread and it is unlikely to grow back.
Brandy is recovering well in her foster home with her best friend Marley. The pair came into our centre together and Marley has stayed right by his lifelong friend’s side throughout her recovery - they really are the perfect pair.
Could you offer this lovely couple a forever home? They would like to live in a quiet home where they would be the only dogs but could potentially live with a cat.
They can also live with children aged 14 and above – call us on 01205 260546 or email email@example.com
Sweet Cookie looking for love
Cookie is an adorable Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is looking for a new home of his own.
Cookie is eight-years-old but don’t let this put you off as he enjoys being out and about, especially on a wet day when he can have a lovely paddle in a puddle or two.
Cookie will need a pet-free home and a nice secure garden to burn off some energy.
If you would like more details about Cookie then please call us on 01205 260546. Alternatively email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Many dogs get excited at the prospect of a door opening in front of them as they often predict something fun is going to happen on the other side, like going for a walk, playing in the garden or even having their dinner in the kitchen.
This can lead our dogs to rush through the doorway and sometimes get underfoot, so today we are going to look at how to get them to wait nicely at doors instead!
Firstly, you will want to have on hand some tasty treats, cut up into small pieces, and get your dog to sit in front of the door you want to practise at.
Reward your dog with a treat for sitting at the door and keep rewarding them for holding that sit. When they can stay in their sit for ten seconds, open the door slightly and reward them if they stay seated – if they get up, calmly close the door and do not open the door as wide next time.
In small increments, open the door wider and wider and reward your dog with a treat if they make a decision to stay seated. When the door is fully open, you can then ask your dog through.
Make sure you are consistent by practising this as often as you can and your dog will learn that sitting at the door gets them a reward and getting up simply makes the door close, unless asked to come through. Over time, your wait at the door will become an unspoken rule!
