Get even closer to your dog by becoming a Battersea Best Friend. Because when you join our new membership programme, you’ll get training and wellbeing advice from the experts at Battersea – all for just £5 a month.

Knowing whether your dog is unwell or uninterested, distressed or disobedient is not easy – but with the help of the Battersea team, including award-winning behavioural expert, Ali Taylor, and Battersea Head Vet, Shaun Opperman, you’ll learn everything from how to train your dog to stop barking on the lead, to how to know if they're feeling anxious – and what to do about it.

Your membership also gives you free, 24/7 access to Vetfone, ensuring you receive immediate advice from an RCVS (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons) veterinary nurse, should your dog become unwell.

Become a Battersea Best Friend, and you won’t just be making life better for your dog, you’ll also be helping the thousands of dogs and cats that arrive at Battersea each year to find the best friend they deserve.
