Dog Assessments

I provide dog assessments for local councils and adoption agencies, where dogs are being re-homed into a family with young children, or where a child is being adopted and the parents already have a dog in the home.

Please get in touch if you would like to discuss this service.

“We approached Pen as we needed to have our dog assessed on whether she could live with children. We had received comments from previous social workers on their thoughts about our lovely rescue staffie and her (unlikely) suitability so it was very reassuring to meet Pen who was professional and fair to our dog. She undertook lots of tests without overwhelming her and wrote a full report to meet the social workers’ requirements. It was such a relief that she passed with flying colours as she is a much loved part of the family! Pen gave us loads of information and tips for introducing her to our children, supervising and supporting her during the transition. I would definitely recommend Pen and our social worker also said she would call on her again when completing future assessments.” Katriana
