For the LOVE of DOGS ... the Barn Dog Rescue
arriving Saturday Oct. 3rd!
This is a true example of what rescue is all about.. Working together for the animals. A good lesson that neglect comes in many facets and it is not always intentional and a word from Lynn Angel, our southern boarding partner about Mimi.
UPDATE: Mimi's grooming is complete.. a whopping 2.8 lbs of mats came off of her. Needless to say, she is feeling much better and has begun settling in at DawgPatch<3 Mimi will soon be going to the vet for a full spectrum wellness check.
A sudden and sad farewell to TINK

She made everyone feel so loved! Tink and Jamie were deeply part of one another.. she will always be in everything we are! We love you and feel blessed to have known you TINK!!!!

How to Greet a Dog..
Dogs have a wonderful way of making people smile. They are quirky, adorable and loyal beyond comprehension. One of our missions here at Love Dogs is to continue to infuse doggie education everywhere we can! Something almost everyone of us experience ourselves and see often is the snapshot of someone walking up a dog to say hello. Sometimes the dog really loves it.. other times they're conflicted.. and other times they are down right terrified. Let's work together to make our beloved dogs more comfortable during greetings!

Trick Training is
Good for the Soul!
Teaching dogs new tricks is not only entertaining to show off to your family and friends but it is incredibly fun and stimulating for both you and your pup! Trick training may seem intimidating to some but it's really very simple. This gets dogs using their brain which can often be more tiring and fulfilling then a 2 mile walk. All you need is a clicker, some yummy treats and to follow some How-To videos! Stay tuned for some How to Trick videos and check out some Love Dogs in action below!!

Children and Dogs..
a VERY important Topic
We love children.. and of course we love dogs too! So it would only make sense that children and dogs should naturally live in harmony, right?
Unfortunately, no. Children do a ton of things that are really scary to dogs.. unpredictable movements, loud noises, running quickly, grabbing, tugging and throwing toys.. All of these things diminish trust over time. Trust is not something that is permanent.
It is imperative that parents learn the Do's and Don'ts of living with kids and dogs. We LOVE educating the public on the ways to make living with kids and dogs joyful and simple for all.
WANTED!!! Love Dogs Fosters
We specialize in saving older dogs, dogs with medical issues and dogs who need a little extra time and attention. The need at times is overwhelming. Not many rescues are able to take in these forgotten pups! We are hoping to develop a network of LOVE DOGS fosters who wish to provide loving homes for these darling doggies while they see our specialists and get their broken bits and pieces tended to!
Fostering is a wonderful way to support rescue! Very often these sweet dogs ask for very little & offer all their love and gratitude!
Maybe while at you are at home.. in quarantine.. you'd consider devoting some of your time and attention to a needy rescue dog Enjoy the incredibly rewarding experience of building a special relationship with one of our needy dogs.. their lives would be forever changed by the love and attention only a home and the love & focused attention of a trusted friend can provide!!
For the LOVE of HORSES
Part of the magic here has to do with the integrity of our mission. Our combined efforts to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals stem from a foundation of respect, kindness, clear intention and a humble desire to learn from every animal in our care.
Our rescue is located on the grounds of a serene and magnificent, private horse farm in Westchester County NY. Not only does the farm provide a sanctuary for homeless dogs it also provides sanctuary for special equines in need. As with our dogs the ponies and horses are given all they need to go to live happy and fulfilling lives. Some become "homies" at the farm.. many others are adopted to loving homes!
