Who we are
We are a team of qualified animal behaviorists and trainers, dedicated to helping misunderstood dogs, become the dogs we all know they can be.
What we Do
Dogtown SA is a pro-life, animal rehabilitation centre, specialising in so-called “problem” dogs. We prefer to call them misunderstood dogs. We provide them with the best care and rehabilitation programmes, from behaviour modiﬁcation to extensive medical treatments. This includes a full medical examinations, microchips, vaccinations and sterilisations. The dogs in our care are assessed and then an individual training programme is put into place by our 4 internal behaviourists. We aim to offer lifelong commitment to the dogs that come into our care and a lifetime of support to their new families.
Our focus is to help dogs that need our specific expertise and we take in dogs from other rescue centres who are struggling to home them because of a behaviour or medical problems.
We also have a retirement village for older dogs as a lot of the time older dogs with medical issues are dumped at centres around the country with less chance of finding lovebable homes.
Our focus being on misunderstood dogs, does not allow us to take in easily homeable dogs, for this we created the website www.barkingmad.co.za for people to network their dogs looking for homes with the assistance of rescue centres.
