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.
