Arambol Dog Temple is a hidden bungalow right at the far end of Arambol Beach.
In a hot second, I ran over there so I could dive into the sand and swim in a sea of furry love.
And so that’s exactly what we did!
Spending the day at Arambol Dog Temple
What we did at Arambol Dog Temple
The day consisted mainly of playing and giving love to all the dogs at the sanctuary. Feeding them, making sure they were properly medicated and also picking the healthiest pups to go out for adoption. I spent most of the day with Didi, massaging his little legs and giving him my best attempt at doggie physio, walking him around with a cloth to support his hind legs and exercising them while he napped.
Dog Hierarchy At Arambol Dog Temple
Of course, it’s not all fluff, bubble gum tongues and, endearing woofs. This place is full of street dogs.
Dogs are pack animals and so there is always a pecking order, but when you bring lots of differents dogs from different territories there’s going to be tension within the troop.
Quite often we found the dogs getting into small scraps and jealousy towards those getting more attention from the humans. But despite the small upsets there does seem to be a ladder slowly forming. It was fascinating to watch and observe how each of the dogs would interact with each other and it became clear which dogs were the pack leaders.
