Cours de formation pour nos chiens du refuge 2019

Nos sessions pour nos volontaires qui aident à la réhabilitation de nos chiens secourus reprendront à compter du mardi 15 janvier 2019. Ces cours nous permettront de préparer plus de chiens à l’adoption, offrant des activités de socialisation, de renforcement de la confiance en soi et d’obéissance de base.

Il y aura deux cours par semaine de bénévolat et de sauvetage cette année, tous les mardis, un de 12h à 13h et un second de 14h30 à 15h30.

Tous les bénévoles qui le souhaitent sont les bienvenus pour venir nous rejoindre à notre classe de volontaires et de secours chaque semaine. Les nouveaux amis de Grande Daze sont également les bienvenus, mais ils devront faire l’objet d’une évaluation afin que nous puissions vous affectez un chien approprié. Contactez-nous si vous souhaitez nous aider et nous indiquer le cours auquel vous assisterez.

Grande Daze est un centre de sauvetage et de rapatriement responsable. Lisez nos politiques de rapatriement.

Volunteer & Rescue Classes 2019

Our volunteer & rescue dog classes will restart from Tuesday 15th January 2019. These classes enable us to get more dogs adoption ready, providing socialising, confidence building and basic obedience.

There will be two volunteer & rescue classes this year, both on Tuesdays, one from 12pm til 1pm and a second from 2:30pm til 3:30pm.

All our volunteers are welcome to come and join us at our volunteer & rescue class each week. New friends of Grande Daze are also welcome but will need an assessment so we can assign an appropriate dog so do get in touch if you would like to help and let us know which class you would be attending.

Grande Daze is a responsible rescue & rehoming center. Read our rehoming policies.



We were heartbroken to hear of Max’s death, having got to know him and Keith & Margaret through their attendance at agility training. We knew the gaping hole that would be left by the loss of such an energetic and loving dog all too well. We are so glad that Meg was able to ease their pain and that they were able to give Meg the loving home that she deserves.

Meg arrived with us just the day after our beloved dog Max was killed in a road accident. We had just buried him in the garden and we did not know what to do with ourselves in our sadness and shock. Just then Anita arrived with Meg and her favourite collie dog in her van and, bless her, saved our lives that day.

Anita said “just keep Meg to help with your grief,” and of course she did and now lives with us.

We understand that Meg’s history was that her previous owners had worked and left her as a puppy all day and, of course, she hated it and destroyed furniture etc. and eventually arrived at SPA in Laval and was just on the point of being euthanised when Anita rescued her and brought her to Grand Daze!

Meg was with Anita and Peter for years and they vowed that she would not be adopted by anyone who worked full-time, etc. We can only imagine how difficult it must have been to settle Meg after her sad life but, due to the love and affection given at Grand Daze, she is the most wonderful dog.

We have adopted her since March and she comes everywhere with us and its not a problem, we are retired and have always enjoyed walks in the forest and it is possible to leave her in the car whilst we go shopping etc. She is very affectionate and so anxious to please.

We can never thank Anita and Grand Daze for letting us have her!
