Advice for new owners

We have compiled a guide for new owners on ways to help your rescue dog settle into their new home. The guide covers the following:

  • Being patient with your rescue dog as it can take at least two to fours weeks, and longer for some dogs, for them to adjust to the major life change of moving to a new place and getting to know new people.
  • Introductions to other pets in the home
  • Introduction to the human family members
  • Importance of routine and consistency
  • Socialisation and training
