Re: Survial Guide and Tips for the Transport Angels!
In Gabby's memory, let's not forget these following tips:
Please anyone transporting make sure no-slip collar is used. Make sure you know dog's background, e-mail person the dog is coming from. In this case the person who made up the transport run did not tell people that she was afraid of men and no man should be on transport. Also the foster family was never copied on the transport run or something would have been said that not to allow men to do transport. This sad ending might have been pervented if these things were done. This has been a very hard lesson for me to learn and I hope others will learn from it.
Just a note for anyone reading this and thinking that a no-slip collar will be enough to keep a fearful dog from bolting: it will not. Annalise has chewed through-in one swift bite, many leashes. Her first foster could only use a chain on her. So in your transport bag get one of those chain leashes with the vinyl handle that I think they still sell at tractor supply places, walmarts, etc.
I also want to say that I hope that people are referring to a martingale collar and NOT a prong collar when they say no slip collar. Just want to have that information out there as well.
has martingales pictured if you are unsure.
