The A Dog’s Life and AniEd collaboration is a long standing relationship that has allowed us to provide the best education, support and guidance for pets and their people, at all levels. In 2019/2020, we will be taking this partnership even further…

Our Vision

A Dog’s Life and AniEd are teaming up even more to develop a unique shelter based Canine Enrichment & Education centre for dogs, pet lovers and professionals. We will continue to play to our strengths, taking pound dogs and giving them the best chance of finding a new and better life, while providing pet owners, students and professionals with an outstanding education in canine training, science, care and behaviour.

Our centre will provide kennel space for a small number of dogs who need new homes and a better life. But, this will be offered in a unique environment where education will play the starring role, preparing these dogs for their new life through structured education, experience and enrichment. Our tutors and students will provide the care and education for these dogs, developing their own skills and monitoring the behaviour health and welfare of our dogs. Win-win!

We want rescue to be the place that people come to get a great dog; to come to get a dog who will adjust well to family life, who will demonstrate appropriate and acceptable behaviour and who will become an asset to the community, representing rescue dogs.

This move will allow us to facilitate the development of knowledge and skill among pet owners, local community members, budding and established professionals and the wider public in a true understanding of canine welfare. Education is key to improving the welfare of people and pets, after all!
