At Pupford, our mission is to empower you to create a healthier and happier relationship with your pup.
Hi, I’m Yukiko, Mother to two senior Dachshunds and a fluffball Samoyed. And one of the founders of Pupford. I LOVE dogs (maybe a little too much… actually that’s not possible.) and got into fostering surrendered pups in my home state of Utah about three years ago.
The rescue organizations in Utah seriously rock and I’ve been lucky enough to foster 20+ dogs that needed a little TLC before finding their forever homes.
When you bring a new foster pup into your home, most of their background is a complete mystery. All you know is that it’s your duty to prepare them for adoption into a loving home. Preparing pups for adoption is like caring for any other dog, and it revolves around three critical components:
Both man (or woman!) and dog are social beings and neither can thrive without meaningful relationships.
Receiving the right daily nutrition can rapidly transform a dog’s physical and mental health.
Proper obedience encourages positive behaviors, provides mental stimulation, and builds trust.
These three things work together in tandem to make a pup truly happy!
