What to Consider About Fostering a Dog

Shelter or rescue dogs often go through a fostering period outside the shelter environment. This helps these dogs get ready to go to their forever homes. You can provide a foster home and consult with your local animal shelter or a rescue group to select a dog that is a good match. Check into what your responsibilities will be, especially financial ones. Even though this is a temporary arrangement, consider how this dog will fit into your household. Consider the size, temperament and breed when selecting a foster dog. Keep your resident pets in mind and ask about behavior issues, fears or special needs. Work to establish a normal routine for your foster dog. Start obedience training and establish exercise and play sessions with your foster dog. Most importantly, be patient and kind to your foster dog and have fun. For more information, contact your veterinarian Chattanooga, TN.
