Q: What happens if my dog doesn’t get on with another dog?
A: It’s really important your dog get’s on well with other dogs. Before accepting your dog into our community, a member of the Happy Tails team will meet your dog and assess their suitability. We only accept social dogs with no history of aggression, this ensures all of our dogs are happy in one another’s company, and reduces the risk of your dog not getting on with another dog. Once they’ve settled the dogs usually form their own social groups and tend to stay with dogs who enjoy similar activities.
