It’s important to remember that dogs are social animals. There’s a reason we call them our best friends: They are wired to spend time with us, watch us and help us. It’s hard for dogs to become great at their job of companion if they don’t ever spend any time in our company. That’s not to say you shouldn’t foster a dog if you work — far from it. We all need a friendly face to come home to at the end of the day. A dog is a friend who is always there to greet you, play with you and exercise you. (You didn’t think this was a one-way relationship, did you?) But not many of us can spend all day with our foster dogs, although it would be a great world if we could. We have work, school, family obligations, friends and other commitments in our lives. So we've put together some tips on our website that you can read on how you can make your dog’s life better — enrich it, — even when you’re not home.Workdays/Arrangements*Where will the dog be kept for extended periods of time, such as workdays?Living Arrangements*When you are home, where will the dog be kept?Begin Date*If your application is approved, when is the earliest date you would be able to begin fostering?
