Stickies and Trickies

Living in a kennel environment such as Dogs Trust can be taxing on any dog. Dogs are companion animals and their ideal living environment is in the centre of a loving home, being made feel part of the family.

While we are extremely lucky to have a fantastic facility here, and an abundance of help in the form of volunteers, dedicated adopters and donors -  unfortunately for some dogs this isn’t enough.

Our Sticky and Tricky dogs are the dogs that for one reason or another are not a straightforward "rehome" or struggle with kennel life so much that they require more help and support from the Behaviour Team, carers and future adopters.

There are some dogs included in our Sticky list that through no fault of their own are being missed or unnoticed by potential adopters.

The term sticky is used for dogs that have been in our care over 6 months. Any dog that is struggling in the centre, and potentially will need some additional help with their new home, is added to the "Tricky" list. All dogs on these lists are reviewed regularly by our Behaviour Team and have active training plans in place to help them with any issue that might be holding them back.

If you are an experienced dog owner and would like to offer a forever home to one of our Sticky or Tricky dogs, why not pop up to the centre and have a chat with our Rehoming Team? We're open 6 days a week from 12pm-4pm (we close on Tuesdays!)
