Second Chances – New Leash on Life
“Second Chances” is an opportunity for dogs that have not found their forever home through the normal processes of Cedar Bend Humane Society (CBHS). Often, these are dogs that struggle with their emotions and behaviors in a busy facility environment. Second Chances offers these dogs a customized two-week training and support program to “unleash” their frustrations.
A Professional Trainer will work one on one with these dogs along with the staff at Rock River Pet Resort including them in playtime and daycare. The dog will be housed in a professional suite allowing them the relaxation needed to learn and absorb the new training that will take place. During this time, we will assess the current training level of the dog, implement core principles in learning how to learn, and evaluate the dog’s ability for continuing education.
Upon completion of the program, a full assessment will be provided to CBHS that includes a professional opinion of the dog’s placement opportunities. Second Chances brings an exciting new opportunity to dogs in need, yet cannot guarantee success in every candidate.
When Koda first came to Cedar Bend Humane Society, he was a shy and fearful puppy. It was difficult for him to come out of his shell for strangers so he struggled meeting potential adopters. After completing the Second Chances Program, he understands 'sit' and can walk nicely on a leash. Koda was chosen for this special training program due to his timidness and avoidance when meeting new people. During his time at Rock River, he has shown consistent improvement. Once Koda adjusts to a new person he quickly blooms into a social and loving dog! Because of Koda's huge improvements through training and socialization, he was able to find his forever home!
