    QWhat is the Noble Beast Scholarship Fund?

    A – The Noble Beast Scholarship Fund was created as a tool to:

    • Reduce adoptable dogs’ euthanasia rates – The good news is that the shelters aren’t euthanizing for space at the same rate they were even 5 years ago, but the number has gone up in Colorado from 2012 – 2013 due to overcrowding.
    • Reduce the population of homeless dogs – The humane Society of the United States estimated that 6 – 8 million dogs were homeless last year, and 3 – 4 million of those dogs were euthanized.  Euthanasia is STILL the leading cause of death for dogs in the U.S.
    • Reduce the numbers of dogs sitting in no kill shelters – More and more we are seeing serious behavior problems in dogs that live in shelters for any length of time.  Many of these dogs are victims of neglect and abuse, but some are simply given up by their owners due to unavoidable changes in their lives, and others are given up due to problems that could have been worked through with a bit of owner education and dog training.  Dogs are immensely social animals, and living in a shelter is sadly isolated living.  A small problem they may already have is going to be exacerbated by living in isolation, as well as affect the dogs psyche’s negatively just as it does with humans.  Most scared, anxious, and shy dogs that hover in a corner or act out defensively are often misunderstood and deemed unadoptable and/or passed up by potential adopters who simply can’t afford to get them the help they need to become family members.
    • Reduce the return rate of adopted dogs – Many dogs are adopted each year from rescue groups and shelters, only to be returned because there was no support or training advice when the dog was brought home.  New owners,  with innocently unrealistic expectations, often follow ‘old school’ training techniques which shuts down all communication and bonding as the natural nature of the dog kicks in, such as:
      • Barking or chewing to relieve stress.
      • Submissively urinating because they are scared and confused.
      • Going potty inside because they don’t know where to go or how to let their new owners know they have to go.
      • Bolting out doors and gates because they don’t understand this IS home.
      • Becoming defensive with family members and other dogs because they were thrown into situations that they needed to take slowly or have never experienced before.

    These are just a few of the problems people face and chose not to deal with by simply returning the dog, or worse – just letting it go!

    • Ensure Adoptable Dogs get trained and new owners educated and prepared for their new dog – When a dog goes home with a Noble Beast Scholarship, they go home with support!  Not only do they receive a Noble Beast Orientation folder (loaded with tips on bringing a new dog home), but until they get in front of their new trainer, they are free to email Noble Beast Dog Training for quick tips and advice.  The owners will have a very clear understanding of what to expect from their newly adopted friends, how to introduce them to new people, places, dogs & things, how to help them feel at home sooner rather than later, and how to start building a bond from day one!  Then the training begins, which not only builds confidence for both owner and dog, but is also a natural relationship building activity that helps bridge the communication gap between dog and human, ensuring a lifelong forever home for the dog.  However let’s say there is an unforeseen life challenge that forces the owner to give up the dog.  A trained dog is 70% more adoptable than an untrained dog!

    I hope we have been successful in answer all of your questions and
