WE ARE NO LONGER TAKING APPLICATIONS FOR HONEY. Honey will need an experienced home to continue with her confidence building and behaviour modification work. Honey is currently receiving extra support generally, she hopes to start looking for a new home soon. She lacks confidence and is generally very nervous, as her anxiety builds she can become reactive (towards people, dogs and other animals) so she will need a home that will understand she needs time and lots of patience to adjust (several months). Honey is very worried by strangers. She has been left to feel safe here and is starting to come out of her shell. She needs an experienced home with knowledge and understanding of dog behaviour to continue building her confidence, long term commitment to management and training is required so patience is a must. Honey needs an quieter ADULT ONLY home. She needs to be walked in quieter more rural areas. She is a very intelligent dog so will need a home that wants to provide mental stimulation as well as physical. Honey does not like smaller dogs and needs to be the only dog in the home. She can not live with cats will chase or small animals. Potential adopters must be aware that she will need several meetings, so preferably living near the centre.
As the owner you are responsible for providing everything your dog needs to keep them healthy and happy:
· Companionship - Dogs are very social and love spending time with people and sometimes other animals.
· Physical exercise - At least a couple walks a day.
· Mental Stimulation - Activity that keeps their mind busy / training.
· A healthy diet - Normally two feeds a day of the food type and quantity appropriate for the dog. Access to clean, fresh water.
· Veterinary care - When needed. Annual health check.
· Comfortable environment - Not too cold, hot, draughty or damp, where they can rest.
· Respect of their needs - Especially ensure children know how to behave around dogs to help them build a lasting friendship.
Each dog has specific needs, depending on its age, breed and type. For more info on caring for your dog please order our free pet care guide here: Pet Care Guide
