What will a dog rescue organisation look for when doing a home visit/check?

Question by : What will a for when a ?
We are hoping to a puppy (lab x collie) from allsorts and they are coming to do a house check first. I was just wondering what sorts of things they will be looking for. We have already been given a large crate and we plan for it to sleep in there, at least just while its a puppy, and this is already been set up. Any one had one of these visits before?

They’ll be looking at the size of your house and garden and check that the dog cannot injure itself or escape.

    I had a visit because we wanted a big dog , we went on the website and filled out a questionnaire which was about 35 questions. Then we was contacted by Email and then by phone to arrange a home visit.
    Our home visit was by a great chap , He brought his clip board and had a little walk around , he looked upstairs and then looked briefly in the garden. He asked why we wanted a dog and also our working times , I think this was to see how long the dog would be left on its own. He then filled out his report and said the house was fine for a dog.
    He did say that we might not be able to have the dog we wanted because of lack of experience and this would be to the decision of the dog trainers at the kennels , Which you will also meet.
    I really hope this helps you.
    Good luck.
    Enjoy.

    Check the garden and make sure it’s secure, and make sure there are no electric wires where the pup can get it or anything dangerous at pup level.

    They’ll be looking for unsafe things, holes in fences, if there are proper supplies, like food, toys, etc., and if there are any dogs or other pets purposely not told to them about.

    They are wanting to no if you have a pet friendly home. Like an apart would not be good unless there is a park very close by. If it is a house a good yard is needed. ect.

    Ive never had the visit, but I would think that they may be concerned about enough room for the dog. Also where the dog will be during the day if both adults work all day. It looks bad for a dog to be left in a crate all day then crated at night too. Makes the dog go crazy and misbehave. Some orginizations look for only one or no kids. Not all dogs get along well with kids. They may look to see if you have other pets too. Anything that might be a difficult transition for a dog that needs stability and love. good luck.

    They’ll most likely look for/ask about:

    -Space in the home
    -Space in the yard (Or if you even have a yard)
    -Any small children
    -If you’re experienced with rescue dogs
    -If you’ve ever had a dog before
    -If you have the time for the dog
    -If you have the MONEY for the dog
    -If you seem like a responsible owner
    -Any puppy hazards (Wires lying around, poisonous plants, sharp stairs, etc)

    ok well keep the house puppy proof as in nothing the puppy can chew on, for example electric cords, that could get it hurt(so dont keep the cord on the ground or cover them) . nothing that could fall if the puppy tugs on somthing or runs into a table these are just a few
