We spend a lot of time working with clients and their dogs here at Cosmic Canine, so we see a lot of issues that can be overwhelming for families. Jumping, biting, barging out of doors, charging out of crates, general craziness - sound familiar? While some owners take the step towards hiring a trainer and getting help, sometimes it is just too much for others and their dogs end up at the shelter. We want to help those dogs too - one dog at a time.
Our program aims to pull dogs that are often dumped because they "have too much energy " or "are too crazy ". Unfortunately, many of the real reasons these dogs are dumped at the shelter are actually things that can be fixed with just a bit of structure and training! We help these dogs get the training they need and the jobs they want to have.
We work hand in hand with Plano Animal Services. Sometimes we get a call about a dog that is just too much to be placed into a new home right away. These dogs are evaluated and pulled by us and come to live at Cosmic Canine for training and prepping; we get them all ready to go, and when a fitting home comes up we adopt them out. We want to give back and help the dogs that didn't get the chance to get help before.
Cosmic Canine's "Allie"
Taken in: February 27, 2017 Breed: Lab (mix?) Age: 4-5 months Story: Allie was taken to the shelter because of her high energy and puppy biting. Her previous owner could not handle her silly puppy antics and tons of energy. We visited her for an evaluation and discovered that Allie is just a dog who needs a job and LOVES to work. She has excellent food drive, moderate toy drive, and a real thirst for learning. In just the two days she has been here at Cosmic Canine so far, she has already learned sit, down, touch, place, and more. We will continue to work on Allie's obedience and update on her page and our Facebook. We currently think she would be best suited in an active or sport home - she would be an excellent obedience, rally, agility, or highly active companion. She likes to play rough but will work for food anywhere, anytime!
