(3) After your home visit, your application is reviewed by the board to discuss which of our dogs we think are potential matches. (4) Together we discuss trainers and training. https://www.chaamp.org/how-to-find-a-dog-professional **Please read the CHAAMP Adoption Manual and sign the acknowledgment page. Make sure you watch the required videos which will provide an overview of dog body language. We want to ensure you understand the overview of the force-free concept to set you and your new pup for success. (5) Meet the dog(s) and hopefully bring one home. MULTIPLE DOG HOME: Please note we require that you bring your current dog(s) with you when you come to meet the CHAAMP adoptables. You will also need a second vehicle to separate your dogs for the drive home. We don't make exceptions to this rule so please come prepared, so you do not have to make an additional trip. CHAAMP is a proud member of the Pet Professional Guild. https://petprofessionalguild.com/ There are many ways to train your dog. Yet the only one that results in a healthier, emotionally stronger relationship between you and your pet is through positive reinforcement rewards-based training (communication). Rescue dogs need to rebuild trust with humans and build confidence. You want your furry companion to trust you and do what you ask because good things happen when he/she collaborates with you.
