At Dogs Trust we have a mission; we want every dog to lead a happy life free from the threat from unnecessary destruction. It means that a lot of our work is caring for dogs at our rehoming centres – dogs that need a second chance in life. But it also means addressing the root causes of problems. Every year we receive thousands of calls from people asking us to take their dogs into our rehoming centres, and the biggest single reason they give is because of the dog’s behaviour. So to address this problem, we’ve created Dogs Trust Dog School.
Dogs Trust Dog School is a national network of experienced trainers providing fun, educational courses for all dog owners based on up-to-date scientific research. The classes give owners and dogs the foundations they need to develop a strong bond, cope with everyday domestic life and avoid some of the common pitfalls which lead to behaviour problems. On this web-site you'll find lots of hints and tips about dog training and behaviour - you will also be able to find your nearest Dog School and get in touch with your local team for expert guidance on training your dog and understanding his or her behaviour. If you want to make the most of your relationship with your four-legged friend, Dogs Trust Dog School can help.
Research is an important part of Dogs Trust's work - it helps us ensure that are policies and practices are based in evidence, and we are doing the best we can for the dogs in our care. The research funded by Dogs Trust also has wider benefits for canine welfare. Click below to find out more!View more
