Advice before moving in the rescue dog

The decision has been made, a rescue dog is moving in.

It is important to remember that adult rescued dogs have had a history before you, with personalities, expectations and routines that are almost certainly different from yours. This means that he will probably need some time to adapt to your way of life and the new environment.

With his arrival, a very special phase begins for you and your new family member. Now it is important to get used to each other in the coming days/weeks and to build mutual trust and bond.

To ensure that this goes smoothly, I will prepare you and your family for this day of moving in and the coming days/weeks. I will accompany you to your home and will also be available to you by phone during the first week after moving in.
