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.
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.
Expert advice and practical training to help you and your pooch understand each other better. We offer 4 week courses specifically catered to puppies, adolescents or adult dogs.

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.
Freedom, our dog fostering service offering support for people escaping domestic abuse.
We’ve opened pet food banks at some of our rehoming centres for anyone struggling to feed their dog.
We'll help you make the right decision for your dog.
Collar and ID tag
It's a legal requirement for all dogs to wear a collar with ID tag in public places. If your dog is an aspiring Houdini, it's a good idea to have them on while they're out in your garden too.
Your dog's collar and tag is more than just a fashion accessory, although they do look fabulous wearing it. If your dog escapes or you lose them on a dog walk, having your name, address and contact details on your dog's tag will make it much easier for you to be reunited.
Help us reach even more dogs and their owners
We supported thousands of dog owners to bond with their pooch last year. Please help us reach even more by donating today. We appreciate your support – and so do the dogs!
