Whenever you are unable to supervise the dog, it should be crated.
Many of the dogs are not used to living in a home and will be anxious at first. They are crated while at Saving Grace and the crate is a consistent, comfortable place for them.
Crate training is recommended because it helps the dog learn behaviors that will make him/her more adoptable. Some adult dogs are already housebroken, but the crate helps reinforce good behavior and creates the dog’s own special space.
If you do not have a crate we are happy to loan you one for the weekend.
If there are other pets in the home, you MUST feed your host dog in their crate. Take up and dispose of any uneaten food before allowing dogs in the same area. This also goes for treats and bones. Even the most well-mannered/well socialized dogs will guard food from other dogs. Please remember to set your dog up for success and prevent any potential unsafe situations before they arise.
