Retired Parents Rehoming and Transition Program

Currently we have no dogs available for re-homing.

We understand the importance of gently introducing our dogs
into a home and family environment. 
Our dogs retiring have have always been with us, trusted us and been loved by us in a kennel environment.
Bringing them into a new home and
environment without us or their other playmates
must be done properly to ensure a successful transition.
Once our parents are ready to retire they are de-sexed. They then live with our very own foster family, who together with their dog, cat and housemates,
work with the dog, to help the dog learn how to live in an everyday environment. 

They become part of our foster parent's family, live inside with them,
go to the dog park regularly, adapt to new sights and new
sounds that are common in a household eg the scary washing machine and vacuum! 
When the dog is ready, they find the perfect home
for them that is best suited to the specific dogs needs. 

Our foster parent has had an excellent success rate.
All of the dogs that have gone to live with them
have gone to great new forever home with beautiful families.
We are happy to report that they have all settled in really well. 

One has settled in a little too well and they have decided to keep
her to assist with mentoring the new arrivals!
Here are the photos of our dogs (some with their new siblings)
that have been a part of this program so far....
