Covid-19 update April 2021: Our rehoming centres are currently closed to the public for general browsing. We’re still rehoming virtually and we’re here to help if you can no longer care for your dog. Please don’t visit, or travel to our centres unless you have already been matched with a dog, or are leaving donations at one of our contact-free drop off points.

Research library

Research is an important part of Dogs Trust's work - it helps us ensure that our policies and practices are based in evidence, and we are doing the best we can for the dogs in our care. It also helps to inform the wider work that we do, such as offering advice to individuals, organisations and governments on topics relating to dog behaviour and welfare.
