We had the pleasure interviewing the CEO of Big Dogs Huge Paws last week. Big Dogs Huge Paws was founded on the core philosophy that every “BIG” dog deserves a chance and all dogs of Giant breeds like Mastiffs, Great Danes, Saint Bernards and every dog over 100 lb is welcome at Big Dogs Huge Paws. This organization ensures that all dogs are properly evaluated and placed according to their special needs.
Trained by professional behaviorists each foster home knows how to handle introductions, properly evaluate dogs, work through specific behavioral issues, etc. Foster families undergo quarterly training sessions in order to maintain everyone’s skills and abilities and ensure that the entire foster team is on the same page and has the tools they need for success. Big Dogs Huge Paws is working toward a special therapy dog training program.
Over 1050 giant dogs got already adopted through this organization and most of the gentle giants go home trained. On the website of Big Dogs Huge Paws you can find very useful information and articles about Nutrition, Health Care, Training tips and Breeds explained. If you always dreamt of a huge dog with a big heart you should check the over 100 dogs at this organization. PackPeople love giant breed dogs and already fall in love with the one of the dogs called BUSTER a Bull Mastiff – what a sweet face.
