Covid-19 update: our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing, but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with measures in place to keep staff and adopters safe. Find out more about how national Covid-19 restrictions are affecting our rehoming procedures and other activity.

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.
