We are often contacted by owners who have gotten puppies (including adult K-9’s) and they were not fully prepared for the responsibility of caring for a pet who may have been caged all it’s life, abused and neglected, has aggressive behaviors towards humans or other animals, is scared of other K-9’s, or was found as a stray.
Even the biggest K-9 lover can get overwhelmed. Leading some people to think that they have to return their K-9 back to the shelter. Many do wish to do a great deed by rescuing from shelters, but the average K-9 can take weeks if not a couple of month’s to settle into their new, healthy environment. Having a trainer to assess the K-9 once adopted will let you know how specific behaviors can be modified.

Under the condition’s of the K-9 coming from a partially unknown background, then placed in a shelter with limited contact, people sometimes stopping to say “Hello”, other’s walking right on by, and finally, someone taking them home, isn’t easy for a K-9 to experience. And, it can be even more traumatizing for the K-9 to be returned to a shelter with the hopes of being taken home and saved all over again. Unfortunately, the fate of the K-9 is truly unknown when this happens.
K-9 Behave can get both you and your new member of your household acclimated. We have kept 99% of K-9’s in the home from being returned to the shelter.
As advocates for rescue, foster, and adopting K-9’s, it is K-9 Behave’s goal and desire help keep them in their new homes. K-9 Behave can get both you and your new member of your household acclimated.Tweet
