Association of dogs and cats homes

The Association of Dogs and Cats Homes is holding its sixth bi-annual conference at the Royal Geographical Society in Kensington on Wednesday 5th April. Already a key event in the calendar of anyone connected with animal welfare, this year conference organisers are hoping to encourage more small animal enthusiasts and owners to come along and add their voice.

The conference has become renowned as a valuable forum for like-minded people to come together for the benefit of animal welfare, and always ends with a bang in a vigorous and controversial ‘Great Debate’.


Speakers at the conference include celebrated animal behaviourist Peter Neville, author of best-selling behaviour books ‘Do Cats Needs Shrinks?’ and ‘Do Dogs Need Shrinks?’ Peter has been treating problem behaviour in pets for over 17 years and will be speaking on a highly controversial new approach to assessing and evaluating animal behaviour.

With sessions from other icons of the animal welfare world, such as writer and broadcaster Dr Roger Mugford and Tellington Touch practitioner Sarah Fisher, and contentious debate led by prominent vets Christopher Day and Ray Butcher, the conference promises to offer animal welfare as you have never seen it before! This is a fantastic opportunity for pet lovers everywhere to learn more about animal behaviour, to get advice from the very best in the UK, and to meet delegates from all sectors of animal rescue as well as veterinary services, environmental health and local authority animal wardens.

Tickets are being sold on a strictly first-come, first-served basis at £24, or to include an evening reception on Tuesday, 4 April for £40. Telephone 020 7627 7887 or email s.hunt@dogshome.org for more details.
