Frequently Asked Questions
▪️What foods are the dogs are used to eating at the shelter?
We feed a mix of boiled rice with dry food. The rice we boil with some minced mutton or chicken meat (no chicken or lamb bones - beef bones are fine). If the food is ready cooked, let it cool down before giving. For extra health, you can add a teaspoon of salmon oil to the food once a day.
▪️How often should I feed my dog?
Puppies need to eat 3 to 4 times a day depending on their age. Adult dogs need feeding 2 times a day. Water should be available to them 24 hours a day.
▪️How do I train my puppy/dog to go to the toilet outside?
For the first few days and weeks try to go out as often as possible with your dog. Soon you will get a feeling for the needs and timings that the dog needs to go. The best way is through routine, so if you feed at the same times, then generally the toilet trips will be at the same time also.
▪️How do I train my puppy/dog to use fake grass toilets?
Place the fake grass toilet not too far (same room) from the sleeping place of your dog. If needed use puppy aid spray until the dog starts using the toilet. When you see your dog using the toilet tell her/him "good girl" or "good boy".
▪️Can I get my adoption fee back?
No: as explained and agreed when you signed the adoption form it's not possible for any reason.
▪️What items are needed when I bring my puppy/dog home?
Collar (harness), leash, food & water bowls, dog food (salmon oil), toys, chew bone, dog bed (blanket), dog shampoo, brush, (if you're not planning on using grooming shops).
▪️What to do if I find a tick on my dog?
We recommend applying Frontline at the shelter before taking your dog home. If you still find a tick (dead or alive) just remove the tick and flush it down the toilet, it will not reproduce if you have applied Frontline. Be careful to apply only the right amount based on your dog's size, and do not re-apply until due again.
