What Happens to our Rejected Dogs

A good guide dog must meet strict requirements. It is therefore inevitable that a number of dogs do not meet our medical or behavioral criteria. In the first instance, the instructors evaluate whether these dogs, which in themselves have received a good basic education and training, are suitable to be placed as an autism dog, buddy dog or institution dog (see ”other dogs”).
If this is not the case, Scale Dogs will look for a suitable adoptive family that will be fully informed about the reasons for the rejection, with the puppy walker being given priority. Occasionally it also happens that we have to look for a ‘golden basket’ for an old dog that is retiring. This foster family should have enough free time to be with the dog, as guide dogs are not used to being alone.
