Meeting your dog at shelter

Updated: Jun 14

Today, I’m going to talk to you about dog training. You may want to correct your best friend's behavior or maybe you simply want to great that strong bond, with your new fur friend.

When I adopted my dog Molly, who was a cross between a whippet and Rhodesian Ridgeback. She was fast, strong, and beautiful. A loving personality too.


The reason I chose her was that she didn’t bark so I thought. Visiting the dog shelter, all dogs were barking and she was quiet, calm, and confident and I feel in love with idea that I would cuddle up to dog that didn’t bark in my ears every morning.



Like many people, I didn’t do any research, went to shelter that very same afternoon came home with dog and I had no clue what to do with my dog except, you had to take them for walk and feed her.


Her first week she slept in my bedroom to help her settle and second week I moved her bed downstairs to her permanently sleep place and that’s when for the first time, I heard my Molly bark, cry and destroy everything and I was scared.


I learned later that she suffered from separation anxiety. And I didn’t know what to do so I bought loads books, watched loads dog training videos.


I was able to help my dog Molly sleep on her own, leave her for about four hours while I went shopping without having to get someone to dog sit for me.


Training takes a long time and patience. Luckily in these days I didn’t have children and she was my second baby, my first was my cat Sonia.


I used a mix of training methods some from the Dog Whisper etc.


I don’t know your dog or the help you both need to help strengthen your relationship but I have included a link of books and audiobooks that may help in journey to dog training.
