New Roomies at Dogtown

With some amazing adoptions happening the last few weeks, we have been left with many “single living dogs” who are social and really need to have a friend to play with during the day ๐Ÿ™‚ At Dogtown we continuously do assessments on our dogs and have social walks so that they can meet new dogs and keep up with social skills ๐Ÿ™‚ This month has been really amazing and we have buddied up so many new friends ๐Ÿ™‚

Our buddy up ritual usually starts with suggestions of suitable matches by our team leaders. Then the team leaders and caregivers start off with casual walks and gradual introductions, followed by some social time in the play areas ๐Ÿ™‚ Only once that has been done and it looks like the new roomies could be friends, do they start sharing some garden time up at the octagons ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are our latest ROOMIES

Our little Bijou found a friend in Aslan ๐Ÿ™‚ Both of these dogs have sad stories but that has not stopped them from being amazing souls who just want to love and be loved in return.

Moxxi & Lucy are a match made in heaven. They play all the time and enjoy their adventures to the play area where Lucy swims to her heart’s content and miss Moxxi eagerly awaits on the side ofย  the pond for her to get out and carry on playing ๐Ÿ™‚

Jester & Saskia have also moved in together. Both of them were tried with various other dogs first but this combination was just a perfect fit ๐Ÿ™‚

Once our dogs have been matched with a potential new roomie, they have supervised play-dates followed by a 10 day pull out, which basically means they get to spend 10 full days together in their garden during the day but still get separated at night. Only once they have had 10 full incident-free days, are they officially shacked-up and can stay together permanently ๐Ÿ™‚ We want to always make sure that the new roomies are 100% comfortable sharing their space before they spend the night together ๐Ÿ™‚
