Greyhounds are often misunderstood, which can lead to them being overlooked. Because of this, the lovely Sally spent quite some time at Battersea waiting for a new home. Although Sally did find a home, she was brought back due to her separation anxiety
As well as using the Furbo to dispense a treat after leaving her kennel, they also used it to keep an eye on her when in one of their “home rooms” (decked out to simulate a home environment). When Sally was calm and quiet, Battersea would toss her a treat through Furbo teaching her to associate alone time with something positive.
As a result of the training and support, Sally grew more and more relaxed and happy, and soon found a new home. The Battersea team transferred all their knowledge and training to her new pawrent, helping ensure she would settle well into her new home.
