Dog Centred Care

Welcome to Dog Centred Care, an education and consultancy platform dedicated to exploring the emotional experience of  the dog and how it drives their behaviour. We are launching our courses and consultancy service soon. If you would like to go on our mailing list please use the contact form. You can also find us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/dogcc


The Emotional Experience

Dog Centred Care invites carers and dog professionals to explore the emotional experience that drives dog behaviour and move beyond the usual judgements, expectations and labels that can often hold us back.

Dogs share many of the emotional and physiological responses we do. Like us, their behaviour will be driven by how they are ‘feeling’, and the only way they can communicate that emotional need is through their behaviour. Often the dog is seeking some form of ‘relief’ to feel differently.

When we understand this emotional drive, we can move away from the traditional emphasis of arbitrarily creating/changing behaviours. Instead, we can find ways to offer the dog the relief they seek, and support behaviours that are innately useful to them.

This is the power of a Dog Centred Care Approach.
