RESCUE DOGS AND PUPPIES
LIVING AND LOVING IN A NEW HOME
At Unleashed we run specialist training courses for adpoted dogs as well as puppies new to your home.
If you have decided to or already adopted a dog of any age from a shelter or rescue organisation - Well Done!!
Adopted dogs can make excellent pets and be a real asset to your life regardless of the reason they were in need of a good home. We can help you choose the right companion for your household and situation and help your new friend fully integrate in to his or her new home.
Expect a Period of Adjustment
When you adopt a puppy or dog from a shelter, he comes with a history, not the least of which is being relinquished to the shelter. Keep in mind that the stress of this, along with whatever the dog has experienced in his past, can make him less than confident in new surroundings. Plan on giving him some time to adjust to his new home and family. Dogs can take anywhere from a few hours to several months to get used to living in a new place. During this adjustment time, do what you can to make your new dog feel safe and comfortable. Be patient while he adjusts, but also try to keep things consistent and predictable in his new environment.
We are here to help you both every step of the way!

Puppy Training Home Visits 1-1 Training
Lets face it, Puppies are not always the easiest little things are they. They chew, nip, wee and like to leave you little parcels where they probably shouldn't. With a puppy training home visit session we can train your puppy, or show you how to train your puppy in all the ways that will help you have a good life together.
We can show you how to correctly toilet train your puppy, stop your puppy chewing and nipping at peoples feet or biting at your trousers as you walk past or crying or whining at night times.
We can help you in all areas of puppy ownership. We can offer you a a puppy training home visit as soon as you bring your puppy home from day one. All training can be done in your own home, your puppy does not need to go outside at all to start with. Once your puppy is more than 12 weeks old and has had all their vaccinations, you may like to have some outside puppy training.
For all home puppy training visits we can come out with you and show you and your puppy the best ways of lead walking, socialising your puppy and getting them to interact well with other dogs and people. This is a crucial time for both puppy and owner so getting it right from an early age will pay huge dividends as your puppy grows up.
