Intro To Animal Shelter Etiquette - What this article is for, is to help educate people on animal shelter etiquette. Working at an Animal Shelter opened my eyes to just how many people don’t understand, or take the time to understand our canine companions God gave us. That’s where fear comes in, if you don’t understand the dog, you cant trust him, and if you don’t trust him there’s no way in heck he’s going to trust you. Which means he’s going to be leery, and no one trusts a leery dog. But I want to show people how to effectively communicate with scared shelter dogs, or rescue dogs, safely, by using proper animal shelter etiquette.
First though, you’ve gotta have the desire, which, if you didn’t, I guess you wouldn’t be here. So that covers that. You have to be motivated, helping a dog to become a good citizen is definitely not something that will happen overnight. And every case you take will be different. You will have to safely navigate every individual canine you come into contact with. If you’re not safe, the shelter where you work or volunteer will kick your butt outside, with good reason. No one wants that kind of paperwork, and the dog you were supposed to be helping will probably end up euthanized. There is nothing worse or more exhausting than dealing with a good hearted but foolish volunteer/employee. Don’t be that person.
