Guys Marsh animal expert Jackie Grant volunteers with Stour Valley Dog Rescue as a foster parent for dogs.
She explains how she works to improve the behaviour of difficult or troubled dogs so they can be placed with new families.
Sadly, the North Dorset welfare charity expects more abandoned pets when lockdown rules are relaxed. Jackie explains why. And she shares tips on preparing your pet for lifestyle changes, if you’re currently on furlough and waiting to return to work.
Jackie also offers advice on protecting your pet from dog thieves.
