During the programme, all DOGKING homes receive, free of charge, all the resources they need to look after our dogs. This means that when our dogs begin their stay with the family, they are given a starter pack with everything they need for the dog: a bed, food and water bowls, a leash, toys, brushes, etc...Food and deworming products (collar and liquid) and other hygiene products will be administered as they go along. The dogs will also be given weekly baths and veterinarian check-ups, and the family will receive any advice they may need from our departments (training, veterinarian or grooming).
Socialization homes are families that offer to take our puppies into their homes for a period of time to show them the basic notions of cohabiting, as well as offer them the love and affection of a home. During this time, the puppy can learn to live with children, other dogs, other animals...They also learn to understand the concept of hierarchy, to control their bladders, control their own force when playing with children and, in short, they learn how to live as a family.
Rest homes are families that are responsible for looking after our therapy dogs during the time they are not carrying out therapy work. In this case, the family doesn't have to teach the dog anything, it simply has to offer it a peaceful place where it can rest after its work day and to treat it as if it were the family dog. The objective is for our therapy dogs to live with a family and receive all the warmth of a home when they finish the important therapy work they do.
