Fostering is helping your foster dog discover and navigate the outside world (most things will be the first time for them, a bit like Crocodile Dundee if you have seen it!). Falcor is a bit clingy, uncertain, over excitable (which has to be managed well or it can be carnage) but he is so loving and adorable.
People describe him as a bit ‘skittery', doggie daycare said he was like a loveable unruly toddler at first (!).
Fostering requires a bit of time and patience, a lot of love and understanding, (we did quite a bit of reading up on canine behaviour and rescue dogs) and training them on expected doggie behaviour in the outside world.
Hamish said a fab quote - giving a dog a timeframe for 'learned behaviour' is setting yourself up for certain failure.
Seeing Falcor now happy, having fun and unchained, running freely, saying hello to other dogs without a care in the world has to be the most rewarding feeling.
Dogs truly are our best friend, you will have a loyal companion, chained dogs are also lots of fun and very loving, so why not give a chained dog a second chance at life and foster!
