    breed is often a good idea because so much of their basic mental programming will be similar and likewise their favoured methods of play communication and social interaction This said I know many dual or multi dog households featuring radically different breeds such as Mastiff and Chihuahua and Dachshund Greyhound and Staffie and they all get on swimmingly This goes back to the way individual dog personalities will just happily knit together Sometimes this can be down to very wise dog selection by an owner at other times it s more down to sheer luck Age compatibility can also be very important Very often owners might get a puppy to cheer an older dog up However if the age difference between your older dog and new puppy is fairly big you might not be able to take them both on the same long walks the same applies if you own very different breeds with varying exercise requirements or tolerances Your more elderly dog might also find the constant boisterousness and pestering of a puppy very stressful Additionally puppies will often absorb the attitudes and behaviour of the older dogs they live with Living with elderly dogs can lead them to adopt a more aged mindset such as becoming more reserved quiet and generally less outgoing and playful Stress all round There are few things more stressful or upsetting for owners to live with than two or more dogs who simply do not get on It can also be pretty stressful for the dogs themselves Just how complex the chemistry of compatibility can be with dogs is rarely realised by owners until something goes wrong It can certainly help to have a better idea of your existing dog s social tolerances and preferences or lack of these before bringing another dog home to live with him With my own four dogs for instance I know immediately the sort of dog they will happily integrate into their pack gentle polite respectful and fun loving and the kind they will loathe on sight rude over presumptuous over boisterous over pushy and over controlling It s important to accept that with dogs as with people there are always going to be personalities that simply jar or rub each other up the wrong way especially when forced to live together on intimate terms Sometimes conflict between dogs is principally driven by one part such as one dog who continually tries to harass bully or dominate another At other times both dogs become locked in a never ending battle to rule the roost There can be constant psychological needling between them or actual physical fights Although there s a lot owners can do to make conflict between a pair or pack of dogs less likely you also have to know when the stree of trying to make two terminally incompatible dogs live together has become unbearable for all concerned You may then be faced with the options of keeping both dogs permanently segregated which can still

    behalf of Dogs Trust revealed that of the 105 201 stray dogs rounded up in the UK by local authorities during 2007 nearly 8 000 were destroyed for want of a home This figure is shocking enough but is actually potentially even higher as it doesn t include figures from the 34 per cent of authorities who failed to respond or those dogs put to sleep by vets or those by animal welfare organizations that don t operate a no destruction policy Pedigree breeds now outnumber mongrels and cross breeds by ten to one at Battersea Dogs Cats Home Black dogs are more likely to be overlooked when it comes to rehoming than other colours Bitches tend to be more popular than dogs Although some stay longer through no fault of their own the average length of stay for a dog at Battersea Dogs Cats Home is 23 days Meeting your match Battersea Dogs Cats Home helps match up prospective dogs to owners using a computer dating system As Ann O Brien the head of the behaviour unit explained Being able to cross reference dog and owner details helps us to find the best matches With around 400 dogs here at any one time the rehomers can t be familiar with every single one Although you might not always click with each other it s a starting point and a more reliable method than simply walking round trying to pick out a dog by how he looks The pros and cons Adopting a rescue dog can have its downside You re not necessarily getting a ready made dog it s highly likely you ll still have to do at least a little and possibly quite a lot of training with him and when you take him home you ll also be taking any behavioural problems he may have with you Some dogs also behave very differently as they settle into their new homes and grow in confidence what you see in kennels is not always what you ll get But while it s wise not to take too rose tinted a view there are plenty of positives to outweigh most of the negatives There s the feel good factor of giving a dog a second chance and most behavioural problems can be remedied with patience and application You get a huge range of choice when you visit a shelter and the dogs will already have been health checked vaccinated wormed de flead and very often neutered microchipped and with temporary insurance to boot Some charities provide back up advice and support if new owners need it and some dogs may already have had the benefit of some basic training Older dogs are often passed over in favour of younger pets but can still have much to offer Not all dogs classed as mature are necessarily geriatric at six or seven years old they may be in their prime and still very active with many years lying ahead of them Those

    days of his arrival The dog can find it hard to cope better to take things quietly and slowly letting him learn that he s in a safe and secure environment and building on establishing levels of trust and confidence If you need to work on training by all means do so but try starting off at home rather than rushing straight off to sign up with an obedience or training class As well as experiences it is very easy to flood the dog with too much attention new owners can often have the feeling that they need to make up for the dog s past This is really not necessary as dogs simply don t have an understanding of it and all that excess attention can backfire on you and cause problems such as separation anxiety when you need to go out and suddenly he finds that he s all on his own Steps for success Sarah offers the following tips to help ensure that your new dog makes the transition to his new home as smoothly and trouble free as possible Constant petting and stroking can inadvertently put your dog into a state of stress and anxiety Ask your dog to work for attention praise and fuss instead this helps reinforce the bonding process between you as well as ensuring that they don t cease to have any real meaning or desirability Find out what things motivate your dog and reinforce them so he becomes more responsive This will make training and pre empting any problems much easier Give your dog time to feel secure in his own environment before introducing him to new ones Start as you mean to go on and be absolutely consistent Make up house rules that everyone in the family agrees to stick to before your new dog arrives so that he doesn t get confusing or conflicting messages about what is and isn t allowed Don t expect too much too soon in terms of changing undesirable behaviours Take things one step at a time Sometimes you can handle things incorrectly and accidentally end up reinforcing or even creating a problem Do read as much as you can about training and how the dog s mind works as this will help there s plenty of information nowadays in books magazines and on CDs If you have a problem seek help sooner rather than later it s not a reflection on your abilities or anything you did or didn t do sometimes we all need a more experienced hand or a different perspective on an issue Don t wait until a problem is really established as it ll be much harder to sort out Getting your dog checked out physically by your vet is very important and will help to eliminate the possibility of any physical causes Getting help if you have a problem First of all ask your vet to check that your dog s physical condition isn t either the cause

    have to wait Some breeds come into care less frequently than others and have very long waiting lists and as dogs are also generally allocated to the home most suitable not necessarily the one nearest the top of the list you may need to be patient As with other rescue organizations a home visit is also generally carried out to ensure that you can offer a suitable environment Once you have acquired a rescue there may also be follow up home visits and or phone calls to check that you are both getting along OK When a suitable dog is found for you as well as paying a donation you ll be asked to sign a form outlining the terms of adoption As most breed rescues are run by volunteers often on a shoe string they don t usually have their own kennels and wherever possible try to leave dogs with the original owner As well as helping to conserve funds this minimizes the stress for the pet If this can t be managed they are often cared for in foster homes with kennels only being used as a last resort in emergencies Meetings between the dog and new carer and ownership transfer may occur directly in some cases but very often they take place at a halfway house with the dog being dropped off by the original owner earlier in the day so as to maintain confidentiality between both parties and avoid any potentially uncomfortable scenes Finding a breed rescue If you contact the relevant breed club they will be able to put you in touch with your nearest rescue The Kennel Club KC also publishes a directory of breed rescues your vet or local dog warden may have a copy you could check through or you can contact the KC direct for more information on tel 0870 606 6705 Check our directory in the dog rescue centre section of the website which contains listings for breed specific rescues as well as nationwide all breed animal shelters Greyhounds Probably the most numerous of all breeds in need of rehoming is the Greyhound Although there are no accurate figures it is estimated that of the 10 000 retired from racing annually just over 3 500 are rehomed The fate of the remaining Greyhounds is unknown although it is believed that many are destroyed There has been much in the press about the plight of racing Greyhounds and if you are considering adopting a rescue you could do worse than to offer one of these highly affectionate dogs a home They do not need vast amounts of exercise or food and even though they may have spent all their lives in kennels it generally takes them very little time to adjust to the pleasures and comforts of indoor life Visit www greyhoundrescue co uk for links to Greyhound rescues organizations plus information on care and FAQs All bookazines 5 99 each available from the Your Dog Shop BUY NOW Click here
