ABOUT THIS COURSE

Prepare yourself for a lifelong relationship with your rescue pet by preparing for her arrival, pet proofing your house, getting her settled in and winning her trust.


  • Get the practicalities right about winning her trust, changing her name, building confidence, play, exercise and training
  • Find out how to avoid some common behavioral issues so you don’t feel frustrated because you understand what she’s going through
  • Through our easy-to-follow modules, you'll be prepared for the new arrival and how to settle her in
  • Have a better knowledge of animals, then you can break bad habits and set the ground rules
  • Become a better pet parent by helping her through any issues while understanding the importance of mental and physical stimulation

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

  • Plan ahead before your new arrival comes home by pet-proofing your home and looking at the surroundings from her point of view
  • Know what to expect from a rescue pet and how to settle her into a routine while you learn to understand each other better
  • Be the best adopted pet parent possible by training her to bond and showing her how to get along with any other pets and people
  • Everyone who is planning to adopt a pet - from a dog to a snake - will be better prepared to welcome their new friend into their home
  • People working or volunteering at shelters can learn more about rescue animals’ behavior
  • People who handle animals, such as pet sitters or walkers, will have a greater understanding of their special needs, giving their parents more confidence in you
  • You’ll be more confident that you’re providing the best environment for your new arrival and will be more tolerant of her behavior
  • It’ll be less frustrating when she behaves oddly because you’ll feel confident to deal with unusual situations by understanding the traits of rescue animals
  • Expand your horizons through your knowledge of adopted animals to impress prospective employers or clients
