Animal Communication for rescue dogs comes with extra challenges as we often know little to nothing about their background.
They may never have lived in a home before, like Missy here who spent 4 years in a kennel.
They may have experienced cruelty, harsh conditions, loss, witnessed trauma or been brutalised themselves and have a deep mistrust of humans, never mind the face they’ve never been inside a home and seen all the kitchen gadgets we have in our homes, how we run our household or the fact we have stairs, multiple rooms or cars to travel in – it is all very overwhelming at first.
Each dog is different and in my opinion takes a blended approach to live a happy life.
What may have worked for you and your dogs previously may well not work with a rescue dog.
Our own ability to lead, guide and train a dog could well be inadequate or under par. That’s not a reflection on you as a person, it is a fact that many overlook.
Alongside animal communication for rescue dogs, to truly understand what they need, what questions and feedback they have about their new life. I strongly recommend a number of different dog trainers to work alongside the work I do and have seen wonderful results in very short spaces of time (you can message me if you’d like details). Just one can make ALL the difference to your dog settling in really quickly.
My two are Bulgarian steeet dog rescues, I know the Romanian or ‘romnie rescues’ generally have a harder time than others, some rescues in the UK come from families who’ve separated or their person has died.
The reasons why dogs end up in rescue are endless many simply take on a dog they think looks pretty and are ill equipped to look after that breed type.
So my advice here is get some professional help for your dog training. 1 session can make all the difference!
Put your pride to one side and look for insight and help for your dog whether that be animal communication for rescue dogs, a behaviourist, a trainer or even better a combination of all three.
Be prepared to put the work on as undesirable behaviours can quickly become unmanageable and difficult to live with further compounding the problem.
