Owning a dog is not just a privilege-it’s a responsibility. These animals depend on us for, at minimum, food and shelter, and deserve much more. If you are considering taking a dog into your life, you need to think seriously about the commitment that dog ownership entails. If you already have a dog, you need to consider if you are fulfilling all your obligations as its owner.

Licencing

Licensing is part of responsible and accountable dog ownership. A current license allows bylaw …officers to reunite you quickly with your lost pet. In the case of accident or injury, you can be contacted immediately to provide medical information and consent to veterinary treatment. Funds from licensing also provide for the shelter and care of unclaimed strays.Need your RDNO 2014 license? We can help! For each license we sell, K9 Dog Control services of Vernon will donate a portion back to our rescue!

Basic Obedience

 A dog that has learned what to do with his/her energy, intelligence and focus in a positive direction, and given a job to do will be a pleasure to be around.  When any temperament or behavioural issues arise, a responsible owner will seek training advice immediately. A dog of any breed with basic obedience is 89% less likely to bite.

Help eliminate the over population of dogs in our local shelter system. Choose to rescue instead of going to a breeder.

Prevention

Don’t push your dogs thresh hold! If your dog is displaying signs of stress, anxiety, over excitement, or aggression remove them. Control situations by obeying leash laws. Ensure your dog is getting enough physical and mental stimulation.

Re-homing a Pitbull

We frequently receive inquiries from owners who can no longer keep their pit bull and are looking to re-home them. Sit Pretty Pit accepts owner surrenders however dogs facing euthanasia in shelters takes priority. If you are considering rehoming your pit bull please contemplate seeking professional advice from a certified trainer. Often rehoming is due to behavioral issues that can be corrected. If surrender is inevitable we can provide advice, options, pit bull friendly shelters and surrender applications.

Sit Pretty Pit also offers respite care in case of emergency by application.
