Unleashing Potential, Improving Lives
Publications available online

We are delighted to share with you an insight into the impact of our rescue dog training programme at HMP & YOI Polmont! Dr Rebecca Leonardi and our research team are now working hard to disseminate her Thesis which covers details about the development and delivery of the programme, as well as the impact and outcomes for both the dogs and the young people who are involved.

The first publication “You Think You’re Helping Them, But They’re Helping You Too”: Experiences of Scottish Male Young Offenders Participating in a Dog Training Program” was recently published in a special issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, and we look forward to sharing further papers very soon.
