Resources for those working with dogs in research


Welcome to Refining Dog Care

Refining Dog Care is a project developed in a collaboration between researchers and industry to provide resources to those working with dogs in scientific research and information to the public on the Refinement of dog use.

We provide up-to-date, evidence based recommendations and support for good practice while working with dogs in research. If you would like to find out more about why dogs are used in research, why maximising their welfare is so important and how welfare is being improved, please explore the Dogs and Humane Science areas of the website. You can also follow updates about the activities of the Refining Dog Care project and research using dogs in our Blog, Facebook and Twitter feeds.
