Welcoming a Rescue Dog into Your Home: The 3 Stages


Welcoming a rescue dog into your life is such a rewarding experience. Not only are you giving yourself the joy of sharing your home with a dog, but you’re giving that dog a new chance at life.

Depending on the dog’s previous life experience – or how long they’ve stayed in kennels – there may be some challenges to work through as you navigate your new relationship. Our journey with rescue dogs doesn’t tend to be linear – there may be many stumbling blocks along the way. Although, working through these challenges together can give you an incredible opportunity to solidify your bond and create a relationship for life – one built on trust.

In this webinar, Rosie Taylor-Trigg joins us to share her experience of working in rescue centres for ten years. She discusses the 3 stages of rescuing a dog – working with a centre to find the right dog for you and your family, welcoming them into your home, and the potential challenges that can unexpectedly arise a few months after they’ve joined you.

Whether you’re a new pet parent looking to welcome a rescue dog into your home, someone who already shares their life with a rescue dog, or a professional who helps support pet parents, there is something for you all.

25% of all webinar ticket sales will be donated to support the amazing work of INTORescue.

This is a recording, there will be no opportunity to ask questions.

    Adoption is a huge commitment so I really recommend this webinar as it will definitely give you many points to consider, such as kennel stress, when searching for your next dog. With 10 years of working with rescue centres Rosie gives a really informative and comprehensive talk.
    Have already watched this twice, hopefully Caroline will ask Rosie back for more Webinars. Really enjoyable 🙂
