Animal shelters throughout the United Kingdom provide animal rescue and pet adoption services. These government agencies ensure that stray dogs, cats and other domesticated animals are protected from abusive owners.

Animal shelters provide basic housing to pets in addition to medical care, simple surgical procedures and food. Families and individuals can visit with rescued animals before committing to pet adoptions. Pet adoptions typically require small adoption fees and guarantees by the adopters that they will care for the animal properly. See below to locate animal shelters around Ambleside.

Before enjoying the benefits of pet ownership, it is important to go through pet training. The process of training dogs starts with encouraging proper behaviour in the home. As pet dogs are trained, they move away from urinating in the home and climbing on furniture toward better self control. Successful puppy training is accomplished through rewards for good behaviour. When a pet dog avoids sitting on the couch, an owner can provide a small snack to reward the behaviour. The best place to find puppy training is often through local pet stores and veterinarians.
