Helping Norman get set for a brighter future
Despite the condition of his coat and the heartbreak he may have experienced, Norman was a sprightly older man at eight years old. Our team of dog carers suspected he had a cheeky, playful side that was yet to be revealed. They were determined to do everything they could to bring him out of his shell and feel his best.
Norman was assessed to determine his personality, likes, dislikes and the type of training he required. His assessment showed that he loved playing and was comfortable saying hello, the team also learned that he wasn’t toilet trained and needed to acquire some basic house manners. To help with this, Norman was often taken outside where he could sniff around and this encouraged good toilet habits. One of his main carers, Nicole, helped him get ready for his new home. This involved introducing a routine, seeing how he reacted with other dogs, and keeping him mentally stimulated with lots of toys to play with.
