Hi, I’m Lacey. I am a very sweet girl once you get to know me, although I can take a little while to gain trust in new people. I am looking for a very quiet home that doesn’t have too many visitors that come around due to me being quite worried.

I do find the kennel environment very stressful and feel that I would prefer to meet you in your home, so ideally someone who is closer to the south Lincs centre would be best for me as I’m not the best travelling currently and I would like to do a few visits so my Jerry Green friends can come with me while I am building up my trust with someone new.

I also am looking for a pet-free home, as dogs can worry me, and I do like to keep all the cuddles for myself! Other than cuddles, I really do enjoy playing with toys! The team often catch me running around throwing toys around the compound and I also enjoy a good game of fetch with tennis balls too! If you feel your home would be suitable for me please contact my friends at Jerry Green on 01205 260546 and they can discuss me possibly coming over to see you!

Jerry Green Dog Rescue will be attending the Bakkavor Sunday Funday on July 15 – why don’t you pop down to see us?

Come and see us at our Jerry Green stall where we will have a tombola, information about our work and a doggy shop.

We will also be running a dog show with classes such as handsome chap, loveliest lady, cutest pup and best rescue, so we’re sure there is a class your show-stopping pooch would like to enter.

Over the weekend, there will be a funfair, food stalls and a historical fly-by!

We look forward to seeing you there.

TRAINING TIPS: Using a crate

There are a number of reasons why a dog may need to be crated but it always needs to be a positive experience for them and a nice, safe place to be.

Crates come in a variety of styles and sizes, so it’s important to make sure yours will give your dog adequate space. A good rule of thumb is to ensure that your dog is able to lie down with their legs stretched out and stand up without having to hunch over.

Most crates come with a plastic or metal base, but care should be taken to put a non-slip surface inside for the dog to sit or lay on. A piece of carpet cut to size or old towels can prevent slipping. You can also put cosy bedding inside to make your dog as comfortable as possible.

Some dogs also benefit from having a blanket or cover over the top of the crate so they are less exposed.

Once your crate is set up, training can begin. It is recommended that the amount of time your dog spends in the crate is built up gradually, so they have time to get used to being in it. You can start off by allowing your dog to explore it on their own. You can help by sprinkling treats and putting toys inside for them to investigate.

Once your dog is comfortable entering the crate, gently close the door and continue to drop treats inside. Open the door after a few seconds and let your dog leave the crate if they wish.

Gradually build up the amount of time your dog is shut in. They should appear relaxed, even better if they settle down in the crate.

If you have any food puzzles or long lasting chews then they can be placed inside the crate for your dog to play with while they are inside the crate. This can be a great way to build up the duration of time your dog spends in their crate and can help them learn to relax and enjoy their time in it.

If done gradually with plenty of reinforcement, most dogs learn to tolerate spending time in their crate.
