At Underdog, we tend to rescue well, the underdogs. As important as it is to find these dogs a foster home or a forever home, it is also important to set them up for success! Coming out of the shelter, a lot of these dogs need time to decompress, learn basic training skills, and sometimes deal with more serious things like separation anxiety. We hope these few basic education materials we have put together will help you prepare your home and your family for a new dog!
