Should I rehome my dog?

We know you want the very best for your dog, we love all pets here. But life is unpredictable and understandably, things can sometimes get in the way which are beyond your control.

There may be many reasons why you’re struggling to look after your dog. Whatever that reason is, it’s completely personal to you. Whether it be work or financial pressures, your health, or simply not having enough time to dedicate to your pet, if you’re finding it difficult to cope, that’s okay, we’re here for you.

You should also check with your vet that your dog isn’t injured or unwell, as this may cause changes in their behaviour. We have free dog health advice articles which might help to identify the problem.

Our Behaviour and Training Specialists here at Woodgreen have written free pet advice articles and training courses. Whether you need advice on how to care for your dog, or how to support your dog’s behaviour and training needs, whatever the issue may be, our friendly team are here for you. You can speak to our experts over the phone or via email. Get in touch with us.
