DOGS OF DOGTOWN SA
CHARKA
1 of 15
Last updated on Tuesday, Jul 15 2014
Hi guys I wonder if you know the song – “On the road again - Just can't wait to get on the road again” The reason I am asking is because that was my theme tune. I have had a rather unsettling and precarious start in my furry life which saw me on the road for some eight months where I really had to live off my wits and take shelter in some of the most uncomfortable places and at times have a very empty tummy, which made me miserable. Then the “road I was on” took a turn that would change my situation forever. Amazing people from a special place called DogtownSA were trying to coax me to come to them and after seeing them on numerous occasions sitting near to my hideways, leaving tasty food yet not attempting to upset me in any way, I finally relented and allowed them to take me into their care and back into a safe secure lifestyle. Not in my wildest dreams did I realize what a wonderful decision this would turn out to be. I suddenly had a place to sleep and was given such tasty food and allowed to settle in at my own pace. Then after an initial period at this 5 star hotel I was introduced to a lovely young furkid called Penny and now we spend most of our days playing and romping around together. She has helped me in many ways showing me all the little things I need to know and how to learn to trust and accept all the super carers and volunteers that come to see us so often. I didn’t realize just how caring peeps could be. One of the bestest times we have is when we get to go on many walks together with our carers and volunteers. We wear comfortable leads and harnesses and are able to stop and smell all the interesting scents and shrubs en route. On the trail at certain places we stop and do sits and downs and then guess what --- get yummy treats for being so clever and responding so quickly. I bet you are jealous!!!!! Then when we get back to our little house and are feeling a wee bit tired, we take a nap and I lie down next to Penny and have forty winks in the sun whilst she lies on top of her special wooden house and also has a snooze. Life is just soooooooo cool and I know I will never go back to “the road” again. Nevertheless I do still have a dream that I would love to come true and that is to find my forever family where I can cuddle up with my own human and be a devoted best friend and companion. To make this dream perfect it would be just magic for there to be another furkid and if they don’t have one I would love to bring my furgal and together we could have many years of fun and happiness.

CHANCE
2 of 15
Last updated on Monday, Aug 04 2014
Hi there. I am sure you know many of these quotes and sayings - “Chance in a million”; “Take a chance”; “Chance of a lifetime”; “You’ll never know if you don’t take a chance”; well my name is Chance and I can relate to these sayings and be thankful that a very unique 5 star hotel called DogtownSA took a “Chance” on me. My name is Chance and I was found on a dumpster after being involved in a very bad fight and left by some really nasty humans. But have no fear there are some wonderful peeps still out there and one such person saw my plight and rescued me. I was taken to a vet for help where I had many stitches and lots of medication to put me back together again. My lucky stars were really there for me as this peep contacted the DogtownSA family and they make a special plan to take of me. Even though I was still very scared and uncertain of what my outcome could be I put on my brave face (stitches and all) and kept telling myself that I would be okay and I would be safe. Well guys, I was right. Quickly I found out that my fears were totally unfounded as my new family took me in and treated me better that I had ever imagined was possible. I have awesome carers who look after me and spoil me daily with yummy food and chews as well as peanut butter hooves and furry ice lollies to lick during the day. I also get lots of visits from my carers and volunteers who sit with me, chat to me and I get so excited and roll over and entice them into giving me tummy rubs which I loooovvve so much. I cannot tell you just how happy it makes me feel cos I know they are very busy, but I try and get them to stay as long as possible giving them many thank you kisses in return. One of my bestest treats is going out on regular walks with my carer and I wear a comfortable harness and lead. Whilst we are out I have been shown how to do various obedience exercises so on the way we stop and do these I get lots of special yummy treats and cuddles. I love smelling all the many scents along the way and at times get so involved that I need to get to the next one rather too quickly so pull on the lead. I am learning that this is not the most appropriate behavior but with the special training I am receiving from my gentle carer I am slowing down my pace and learning to walk more calmly at my carer’s side. I also get many days when we go to the large play area where I can run around without my lead, play and let off steam until I am really exhausted. So all you awesome peeps out there if you are a family who would like to adopt me and “take a Chance on me” cos as they say in life “One chance is all you need” I will make you so very proud and be your forever special furkid and lavish all my love and affection on you every single minute of every single day.

I am often over looked as I have a slightly alternative hair style, but I tell ya, you don’t know what you are missing! Not only am I super bright, loving and really gentle at heart, but I am ready to fit right into your life! I am easy going, I get along with most other dogs, although I can look very fierce through the fence, I am actually really brilliant at playing and living with dogs. I am really good too, you can take my food away, groom me, touch me all over, and I have great manners all round. I am a super boy, a real all rounder, according to my trainer.

COURAGE

Last updated on Monday, May 05 2014
Courage is an amazing dog whose name personifies this character. He sustained severe injuries to his hind leg which had been left untreated by his previous owners and needed major bone surgery. With the aid of steel plates and a stay at Doggie Paddle for hydrotherapy and rehabilitation he has made a remarkable recovery. Now at DogtownSA, when it is time to start walking the “furries” he will be the first one at his gate waiting excitedly for you to come and take him on his walk and into the play area where he can run and play with you off lead and enjoy all the new smells and see what messages there are to pick up. Being a typical man, he loves being made a fuss of and having a cuddle and a gentle brushing is just the cherry on top!!!! Courage is a bit of a loner and is happy with his own company, so would be much better as a single dog in his forever family.

Sasha is my name and glamour is my game. I am such a special princess, that I dont need any other dogs around to dim my light. I may one day decide to tolerate some, but I am quite convinced that its just not part of who I am. Humans however........oh yeah - i love you lot! And couches. And soft blankets, and all the things a princess deserves. I love my chews and toys and i adore adore adore bones. Keeps me happy for ages. I love being groomed of course, and I have to have special eye drops every day to keep my eyes sparkling. I don't mind at all - that's the price of beauty. I am happy to live indoors as the outdoor dust messes with my appearance, and dust just messes up my mascara. I am very willing to do all sorts of things for a treat too, because - oh! I do love the fine things in life! Finely chopped bits of chicken work so well (and are low fat - a girls gotta watch her waist line.......) I am very clean and tidy. I don't mess up my blankets like SOME of the other residents here.....tch tch. I don't really need a lot.....just love and some peace. If you don't pay attention to me, I may remind you that I am there......after all, all of us need some reminding to pass along a hug and a kiss don't we?

When you're feeling in the dumps. Don't be silly chumps. Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing. And...always look on the bright side of life... Always look on the light side of life...” Mike always has a smile ready to brighten up our days at Dogtown SA, he has so much love to share with his Dogtown SA humans. Mike just needs a little Dogtown SA help to be a more social fella with his four legged canine compadres before he is ready to set off into the sunset with his forever family.

Ok peepsicles, I don't know why but I have been here since I was a wee puppy and somehow I have been overlooked. My caregiver tells me I'm beautiful and there should be families clamoring to adopt me but they always seem to want a puppy or a mature dog. I seem to be at an age where I'm too young or too old. I'm appealing to you all to look at me and see I am just a girl standing in front of a human asking you to love me. I love walks and to play games, so I'm hoping to be a part of a family that wants a dog to go jogging with and to have fun in the garden. At the moment I live with the crazy that is Tristan and he's a handful, so I'm hoping if there is a furkid in the family that they like to play and also know when to just chill. I'm trying to teach my roomie that at the moment but he seriously does not have an off switch.Soooo if you would like to come and meet me please email adoptions@barkingmad.co.za.

Mishka is a very special gal who loves to be cuddled and made a fuss of. When it is bedtime you must make sure she is comfortable in her house with her blankets and give her lots of kisses to send her off to sleep. In return she will give you such a big smile and return your affection double fold with her special kisses. Her previous family fell on hard times and had to rehome her nevertheless she has settled in very well but every night when she snuggles down to sleep she does send out her wishes for a forever family to come along and meet her. She enjoys her walks with her caregiver and on certain days they go and sit under a shady tree just catching the breeze and chilling together * Unable to adopt Mishka?

Hi my name is TOTO - I am named after a band for their Song about rains in Africa. I like that idea, because my name really suits my cool camouflage coat. I am SO gorgeous, as I keep getting told. Whatever that means. I am super bright too, so my trainer says. She laughed at me so much because I have a great sense of humour and when I do something I do it with all my heart. I am really lovable, I adore being with people - all people, even children. I love being brushed,it makes me feel sooooooo good. I enjoy the odd bone, or chew, and really love my meal times. I am actually a very relaxed girl, you can even take my bowl away while I am eating and I dont mind. I remember to sit,and wait politely. I kind of like cats, but I also want to play with them, so I think that maybe soft toys are better for me - my trainer says I am allowed to play with those. I am a great looking gal, and very kind, I know a lot of tricks, and I am clicker trained, so I can learn all sorts of things! I would love to have a special family to look after.

RUSTY
12 of 15
Last updated on Tuesday, Oct 14 2014
My name is Rusty and I came to DogtownSA when unfortunately my previous owners had to move into a flat and had no space for me. Luckily for me my owners were able to find a new place for me to live at called DogtownSA and this has turned out to be a much better place than I could have wished for. I must say, in the beginning I was rather wary as well as a little suspicious of all the attention I started receiving but soon learnt that this was all part of the care and rehabilitation programme that was to be implemented for me to help me to find my forever family in the future. One of the bestest treats is being taken out for long walks and regularly going to a large play area where I was able to run around off lead, play ball and games with my carer. I also practice and show off my obedience skills that I am learning, as well as going over agility equipment and it is such fun being able to do this and when I do these exercises I get spoilt with yummy treats and cuddles which I am love. There are times as well when I get to meet other furries in the play area and that is also great fun. I just have to remember not to be too excited at first and jump too high for joy so I am learning to take the games a wee bit slower until the other furries get used to my playful ways. I really do love being at DogtownSA and being treated so well but my dream would be to find my own forever family. We could all go to doggy school together and continue to learn more obedience skills. I promise to make you very proud of me and be your forever special furry. I will be so pleased to lavish all my love and affection on you every single minute of every day.

ZEUS

Last updated on Monday, Jun 23 2014
I am Zeus and extremely proud to have been named after such a distinguished Greek god protecting and watching over the welfare of the whole community. I must say I would willingly protect DogtownSA as it was because of this very special 5 star hotel and the wonderful people who care for me and all the other furkids there that I was given a new lease on life. They found me wondering on the main road in Blue Hills suffering from severe skin tumours on my body and private parts. They arranged to have surgery and radiation to treat my skin cancer and now I can swagger around and show off my beautifully remodeled body in a specially fitted tailor made sun jacket. My carers also arranged to have my little house and garden set up in a very shady part of DogtownSA. Shade net blinds have been put up around my garden fence to keep out all the bad UV rays of the daily sun but that does not stop me having lots of visitors. My carers and all the volunteers that come to DogtownSA never miss an opportunity to come and see me and my furkid girlfriend, Rozzie and make a huge fuss of us both. After I have had a yummy breakfast in the morning, I have sun block smeared all over my tummy and private parts. When my carer comes to do this she gives me lots of cuddles and kisses so that she can get the cream all over the areas which are so sensitive to the sun and I must admit that I looooooove all the attention. She then puts on my special sun jacket and makes sure that it is securely zipped up and attached to my collar. Sometimes, during the day when Rozzie and I are playing running around our garden and playing chase in and out of the house, we manage to get the zip undone and even though I know it is naughty, it is great fun doing it as it means that my career has to come back and kiss and cuddle me to put it back on again. Rozzie and I go on very invigorating walks together with our caregivers and volunteers, which is great fun. Unfortunately I am still learning that pulling is not really the best behavior while walking but with all the lovely smells and things to see it is quite difficult to contain my excitement. However I am getting good obedience instruction from my carers and can honestly say I will soon be happily trotting along by my walker’s side. My dream is to once again live in a forever home with a family on which I can lavish all my love and show them the new found skills I have learnt at DogtownSA. If they have any other fur kids, preferably a nice young lady, like my current furry, I will happily fit in. If not I am sure Rozzie would love to come with me.

After a life wandering on the streets he was forced to grow a thick skin: regarding new people with skepticism and guarding what little food he could find. Here at Dogtown SA we have been showing Leo how much more rewarding life is when we share things with those we care about. Leo has even found love with our little Miss Micah <3 Leo still needs a little more Dogtown SA TLC but he sure would appreciate you sponsoring him some yummy biscuits (the way to a man’s heart is through his tummy after all!)

ZIMBI

Last updated on Wednesday, Jul 09 2014
Hello my name is Zimbi, the humans sometimes call me Zimbi Zim Zim which sounds really cool too, I am currently living with a really kind foster family. You see when I was surrendered to Dogtown way back when,I had a bit of a big tummy which just kept growing and growing so the humans took me to the doggy-doctor who said I was going to be a mommy. I must admit I was very scared when I heard the news but I was quickly taken to this 5 star foster home where I could relax and prepare for the lil ones. When I arrived I met some other dogs and made plenty new friends but I didn’t really know how to play with anybody yet and just ended up lying on top of everybody as soon as the game started, but I figured it out quickly ;) One afternoon it all happened and I had 7 little puppies, somehow they all looked different, yikes! It was awesome to watch them grow up but they eventually grew up into little terrorists and started chasing me every time I came to say hello. When they grew up and got too big for the house they went to Hotel Dogtown where they were all adopted into loving homes, I am indeed a proud momma! Somehow I just ended up staying in my foster home (sneaky sneaky heheh) I do miss my babbas but the other dogs do keep me busy by teaching me how to play games and chase them around. I can be a little bit nervous sometimes but my awesome foster dad has started taking me along on rides in a little green beetle (which I think is pretty cool) and sometimes we visit Hotel Dogtown and everybody comes to say hello and give me lots of delicious treats. I must admit, the more we go on car rides... the more I enjoy it. One time we went to a shopping centre which at first was really scary but after a very nice lady came to say hello to me, I felt much better :) Soon I'll be able to go to my very own forever home (which I really look forward to). If you think you have what it takes to give me a perfect, calm, happy home, why not contact the humans at Dogtown and arrange to meet me, you wont be disappointed :)

There’s an Amy on my stoep!
by Luke

 Amy was found abandoned in August 2010, aimlessly wandering around with no clue where she was or how to find her way home. It is presumed her previous owners no longer wanted and dumped her on the side of the road. Amy was picked up by a kind samaritan and brought to DogtownSA; she was very wary of people and snapped and growled when she was approached or touched – this lady needed to be rehabilitated and her trust in humanity restored.

PET TIP
BITE INHIBITION
Puppies bite. Puppy biting and mouthing is natural. Since they do not have hands and opposing thumbs they use their mouths to play and investigate.

When you observe a litter of puppies there is a lot of mouthing going on. When pup bites too hard, his littermates yelp and stop playing with him.  The pup quickly learns that when he bites too hard, his buddies wont play with him, so he chooses to use a softer mouth on them. This is called Bite Inhibition and is an important lesson for the pup.

Forbidding a young puppy from biting altogether may offer immediate and temporary relief, but it is potentially dangerous because your puppy will not learn that his jaws can inflict pain. Puppy must be taught to inhibit the force of his bites (Ian Dunbar)

That cute little nibble will not be cute anymore once the puppy has grown into an adult. They need to learn this before they are four months old.

Teach your puppy to trust you this is necessary to tech your puppy about bite inhibition.
NEVER hit, slap or shout at the puppy, physical punishment will lose that trust. It will not stop the puppy from biting it will only scare and confuse him.

Make sure you are not reinforcing his biting behaviour. Grabbing the mouth and shouting at him is actually reinforcing him by giving him attention being that negative attention.

We need to teach puppy that while mouthing is ok he must stop when asked to , mouthing should only be initiated by you. We must teach puppy that he must not hurt you and he must know that he must not exert pressure at all when biting.
If your puppy is biting/ mouthing with pressure you must simply say “ouch” and turn away from him for 5 seconds and pretend to be licking your wounds, then return to the pup and say gently. This will teach the pup what his mother and littermates would have done and he will realise that when he bites his fun to goes away. The severity of the “ouch” must match the severity of the bite

If your pup acknowledges your "ouch" and stops biting, praise him and lure him to offer a different behaviour and offer him a yummy treat. If your pup ignores the "ouch" and continues biting, yelp "Owwwww!" and leave the room. Your puppy has lost his playmate. Return after a minute timeout and make up by lure-rewarding your puppy to come, sit, lie down, and calm down, before resuming play.
If puppy gets aroused by the ouch sound and has not decreased his biting after 3 attempts in a row, END your play session and try again later on in the day.
Even once your pup's biting no longer hurts, pretend that it does. Greet harder nips with a yelp of pseudo-pain. Your puppy will soon get the idea that humans are super sensitive.

The pressure of your puppy's bites will progressively decrease. Once your pup exerts NO pressure when mouthing, only then, teach him to reduce the frequency of his mouthing. Teach your pup that mouthing is ok until you request him to stop. Give him the command  ”leave”
Each time your pup stops mouthing reward him and begin playing again. Remember to give clear indication to your pup when your play/training session has ended. “All done”
Be persistent and consistent.
