How we help dog owners

Whether you’re a seasoned pro or learning about your new four-legged friend for the first time, we’re here to help.

Sharing our lives with dogs is incredibly special. We owe it to our best friends to understand what they need from us to keep them healthy and happy, making sure we’re always there for them, in the right way. We’re here to help all dog owners to become the best they can be.

Helping dogs and their owners understand each other

Build a bond with your dog while you both learn new skills on our Dog School training programme.

We know that understand dogs is important for everyone in the family so we also offer free family workshops for children, parents and carers.

We can promise a lifetime of care for your dog

It’s hard to imagine that anyone could love and care for your dog as much as you do. But we promise we will. 

If you become seriously ill or pass away, we will look after your canine companion, help them get back on their paws, and find them a home.  

Support for dog owners experiencing hardship

When dog owners and their pets are facing serious problems, we’re here to support them. 

Our Freedom Project helps dog owners and their dogs to escape domestic violence by offering a free fostering service. 

And when dog owners are homeless, or experiencing a housing crisis, our Hope Project provides advice, help and practical support. 

We’ve also opened some temporary dog food banks across the country for anyone struggling to feed their dog(s) in these difficult times.

If you're sadly in the position of considering giving up your dog, we're here to help you make the right decision. We won’t judge you if you decide it’s best to find them a new home.
