Current Welsh Terriers for Re-homing

REHOMING - We have several dogs at the moment that need a new pet home:-

 

  • 5 year old Lettie, who is now with one of our breeder members. She was bought by a lady, previously a gundog owner, who worked from home BUT, from a puppy, Lettie was kept out of the workroom, so over the years she became desperate for human interaction and now clamours for attention when she sees a human pass by/come near.

 

  • 4 year old Megan, a kennel brood bitch upto 13 months ago when, on her 3rd birthday, she was rehomed as a pet just 5 weeks after her 3rd  litter was born.

When hospital stays were necessary on several occasions for the new owners, Megan was boarded at a local kennels and finally the owners realized they weren’t doing the best for Megan or themselves. Megan was signed over to us, and she remains at the kennels, totally used to them and their routine, at our expense.

 

  •  Chloe, a 2 year old kennel bitch born with just one eye, was a house dog for the first year of her life, but didn’t get on with the Irish Terrier; full of beans as befits a young 2 year old.

 

  • 3 year old Borris is looking for a quiet steady home where, at the start, he won’t be expected to want patting, cuddling or affection until he has learnt to relax and discover that life is a whole lot more enjoyable when accepting human companionship – all at his own pace, which could be many months down the line.

Basil is quite ‘self-contained’ and independent, so that when any attention is needed from a human – grooming, medical etc – he doesn’t know how to cope. It would be very much a case of going back to square one, using positive reinforcement training (which uses praise and/or treats as reward for doing something you want him to do). Because the reward will make him more likely to repeat the behaviour, positive reinforcement would be one of the most powerful tools for shaping or changing his behaviour.
We are looking for a home with someone who has previous experience of this type of training and is prepared to take on the challenge.
