Dogs Trust has produced a booklet for homelessness organisations who accept or are thinking of accepting clients with dogs. The booklet, called 'Welcoming Dogs', explains the benefits of accepting dogs and offers advice on topics ranging from health and safety to hygiene and behaviour. It’s based on the advice and experiences of organisations who already allow dogs into their projects.
For organisations who require further help and advice, we can arrange for an experienced member of staff to visit your project and work through any issues you may have. Please contact us to arrange a visit.
