The ‘Welcome Woof’ is the first meet and greet for the owner, borrower and dog, so they can get to know each other.
- Meet in public - We recommend you meet for your first ‘Welcome Woof’ in a public place, like a local park. Most people meet several times before the borrower takes care of the dog alone, and sometimes even do house visits to ensure everyone is comfortable and tail-waggingly happy.
- Communication is key- It’s so impawtant that members get to know each other well. We recommend asking as many questions as possible. Here are ten questions to sniff out at your ‘Welcome Woof’.
- Family and Friends - If you decide to bring a friend, family member or partner with you to the ‘Welcome Woof’, that is absowoofly fine, just let the owner or borrower know out of courtesy.
Just as you would with a friend, family member, kennel or dog walker, it's very important people get to know each other well locally before a pooch is taken care of by another person. Everyone (including the dog) needs to feel happy and trust each other.
