Challenges and Solutions
It can be difficult to live with a dog who is blind, deaf, or missing a limb or two. You may not be sure what their capabilities are, and despite wanting to help them live the best life possible, you may not know how to go about doing that.
Pawsitively Enabled is dedicated to laying the groundwork, teaching your dog essential life skills and building their confidence so that they can navigate their environment, whether that is around your home or out and about. Sandy will come to your home and give you tips to make your home safe for your dog. Furthermore, she will begin the training process so that when the time comes to handover your dog is ready to face life with gusto.
Sandy works with dogs who were born with their disabilities, as well as those whose disabilities develop over time, either due to age or an illness.
A different approach is necessary for dogs who are extremely fearful, but Sandy will work patiently with your dog, allowing them to gain confidence and unlock their potential at a pace with which they are comfortable.
Pawsitively Enabled doesn’t think of disabled animals as handicapped. Instead, we consider them differently-abled. Our aim is to teach them coping methods and problem-solving skills that will empower disabled pets and give them more control over their lives.
We never push or overwhelm special needs dogs. We only ever show them gentleness and patience and respect.
