The Dog Friendly Clinic is a collaborative project between the British Veterinary Behaviour Association (BVBA) and Dogs Trust (DT)

The aim of our Dog Friendly Clinic Scheme is to make the provision of veterinary care the most comfortable experience possible for everyone involved. Here you’ll find information to help your team create a dog-friendly clinic.

What the scheme covers:

  • an introduction to species-typical behaviour and communication

  • advice for implementing behavioural knowledge in the veterinary context

  • guidance on preparing the clinical environment to reduce stress and promote positive experiences

  • tools to help enhance the client-clinic bond through positive patient, owner, and clinic interactions.
