I support the Yellow Dog Project. This project was created to raise awareness for dogs that need space while training, during illness or recovering from surgery. It can also be useful for those dogs who feel threatened by other dogs or strangers. The yellow ribbons, jackets and bandana's they  provide, indicate to other people that your dog needs space and that they should maintain their distance. Click on the link for more information

If you would like to volunteer your pet to help with current behavioural research projects (none of which will impact your pet's welfare in any way), please visit the link to the right for Lincoln University Behavioural Clinic then click on the 'New Study' link.

The link to the right is for the Blue Dog Organisation. It is a Dog Bite Education Tool with dog ownership advice
