Dogs Trust

UPDATE: Our rehoming centres are closed until further notice, however we are now able to rehome a small number of our amazing dogs. Each dog’s profile will let you know if they are looking for a new home. For the time-being, we are unable to register your interest for dogs who are not yet available for rehoming.

The State of the Art of Dog Behaviour: From Science to Practice

18 & 19 October 2019

Oxford Town Hall, St Aldate's, Oxford OX1 1BX (Directions)

Dogs Trust’s mission is to bring about the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction. One of the greatest reasons for relinquishment of dogs is dog behaviour that is problematic to people, and for some of these dogs, rehoming is challenging or not possible. Even for those who can be effectively rehomed, their wellbeing may be compromised in the short term as they go through the stress of the rehoming process. Dogs Trust is passionate about educating all those who have care of or influence over dogs, to optimise their wellbeing within homes and reduce the risk of relinquishment. For this reason, the charity is organising a conference aimed at providing relevant, applicable and science driven CPD to the animal behaviour and related professions.

The aim of the conference is to provide delegates with state-of-the-art lectures which review our current understanding of some key topics in the field of dog behaviour and training. The topics will cover both fundamental and applied aspects of behaviour and training, presented by a range of internationally recognised experts in the field, from Europe and the USA. Dedicated discussion sessions are built into the programme to allow delegates an opportunity to ask questions and engage in open discussions around the topics covered. The aim of these sessions is to foster collegial debate about the state of knowledge within the field and where we still need to progress our understanding. 

We believe that through increasing our knowledge and understanding, we can increase the quality of life for the dogs within our care. Please join us for an event that combines up-to-date scientific research and application to practice in a thought provoking and interactive format.

Delegates also have the option of registering to attend an optional formal dinner held at St Hilda’s College.
