A few years later, I decided to raise a litter of puppies since early socialization is the most important part of a dog’s life. I admit that I was a little nervous after asking Lovebugs for a pregnant momma dog to foster, but their support was great. Raising a litter of puppies, socializing them with people, dogs, the car, the crate and potty training them was an amazing experiences. And yes, I did lie on the floor and let all seven puppies jump all over me. Puppies need a strong foundation, they need to adapt to their dog world and to our human world. It was truly a pleasure to provide my knowledge and skill in order to grow these pups into well-behaved dogs.
Lovebugs recently asked me to foster a terrified Chihuahua that could not be handled. Unfortunately his story isn’t unique, but I was able to provide him with what he needed so that he could live in our human world without fear. My dog training business, All About Training Dogs, is my dream job. I’m blessed to have the opportunity to help dogs, and their humans. Being a part of Lovebugs Rescue is the icing on the cake.
