Home checking

We need special people on board to help us make sure that our Pointers go to great homes.

 

We carefully assessed Coco’s needs to help find him the perfect home.

Home checking is a key part of operations at Pointers in Need. The task? To help ensure that both Pointer and prospective adopter are an excellent match for each other.

We visit every prospective home to make sure that the environment is the right one for a Pointer, such as having an enclosed area of garden, a comfortable quiet place to relax, etc. We like to meet everyone in the household and any other pets. We also ask lots of questions.

It’s a valuable opportunity for adopters to ask questions too. Our team are always happy to ‘talk Pointer’ and answer queries about the process of rehoming, settling in, training etc.

Pointers in Need listens carefully to the needs and expectations of prospective adopters. It is this approach, combined with the detailed home check, that helps our team to be confident when we match adopters with our dogs. This means that  adopters can focus their attention on getting to know their Pointer and begin to forge a wonderful relationship.

 

So if you are experienced with dogs and have a knowledge of Pointers and/or other hunting breeds,
