Introduction to Dog School
Project Lead: Dr Lauren Harris
- To identify barriers experienced by people with low socioeconomic status which may prevent them from attending face-to-face dog training classes
- To investigate whether providing an online dog training course may help people overcome these barriers by allowing them to complete training modules in their own time.
- To investigate the effect of different delivery formats on uptake and completion of programmes, knowledge transfer and customer satisfaction.
- This information will help Dogs Trust determine the best way to deliver training and behaviour advice that is accessible to people with varied socio-economic backgrounds.
