Frequently Barked Questions

1997-09-04C-300This section of the website is here to offer some thoughts and suggestions for some common, and some not-so-common, problems that people sometimes face with a newly adopted rescue dog.


Remember that the dog may have had a traumatic previous life - or it may just have had different 'rules' applied, and above everything else, patience and gentleness with persistance will be rewarded.


The suggestions here are NOT a panacea for all problems, and often the best thing to do is talk to your EGLR contact, or Pip herself. Sometimes a little 'throw-away' comment can lead to uncovering an underlying problem that you may not have spotted.


Please remember, if the problem you are facing is on-going or medical, then the best thing to do is seek advice from your local vet or dog behaviourist.

Should my dog wear an ID tag? Bungle has a secure field that he runs around in, he has never escaped from it. Do I need to get an ID tag for him?
