COVID-19 info: Our rehoming centres are not open for public browsing but you can still make an appointment to adopt or bring a dog to us. We’ve set up new processes which include social distancing measures to help keep staff and our visitors safe.

Senior Staffies at Dogs Trust Shoreham go back to (dog) school

Proving that you can teach an older dogs new tricks, a loveable pair of senior staffies are embracing student life and enrolling at Dogs Trust Dog School Sussex, attending classes held at the Dogs Trust Shoreham Rehoming Centre. The two lovely ladies are keeping their paws crossed that they’ll find loving retirement homes upon their graduation from class.

Twelve year old Honey Bee and seven year old Roxy were brought to Dogs Trust Shoreham as a pair and have always lived together. They are still very active, spending their days running after tennis balls and chasing each other through the fields. They also love spending time with people

Alongside their doggie classmates, Honey Bee and Roxy will refresh their existing training, learning how to sit and lie down on request, walk calmly on a lead, come back when called, settle down and relax when there are lots of things going on and walk through doorways nicely.

Tracey Rae, Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Shoreham said:

“Roxy and Honey-Bee have been with us for a little while now, so we thought it would be good for them to join in with the Dogs Trust Dog School classes that are held at the centre. This will both help with their training, but also enrich their day with a fun activity to do outside of the usual walks and activities our canine carers provide.

These two gorgeous senior girls prove that age is just a number as they are still very active and have lots of energy. We really hope that their forever owner will come along soon but we are enjoying teaching these old dogs new tricks in the meantime and the staff here at the centre love them.”
