GET RESTART DOGS AT YOUR PRISON
Due to the success of the Restart Dogs programmes at HMYOI Werrington and HMP Dovegate, we are expanding at a rapid rate. We are currently looking for other prisons who might be interested in having Restart Dogs at their prison, to continue with the roll out of this fantastic programme.
If you are interested in receiving further information about costings, content covered or logistics, please complete the form below to receive a programme brochure. Alternatively, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and request a programme brochure this way.
We would strongly recommend watching our programme video, since it gives great insight into how the programme works, but also the impact it has had upon the mental health of the prisoners, and their subsequent outlook on life.

BECOME A WEEKEND FOSTER CARER
Weekend fosters are an instrumental part of the rehabilitation team as they provide feedback in the dog’s diaries on the behaviours that they have experienced and seen in the home.
Fosters will be required to go through training prior to fostering any of the Restart Dog Project dogs, to ensure that they have low stress handling skills, understand trigger stacking and are able to continue with the training that the young people have started with the dogs.
OUR CURRENT FOSTER CARERS AT RESTART DOGS AT HMP DOVEGATE
Fosters will have the same dog every weekday evening and weekend for a period of approximately 12 weeks, or until the dog is ready to be re-homed. This would be especially interesting to somebody/a family who would like to look after a dog, but work full time and are not able to commit the time required for a dog during the week. If you would like to apply to foster a dog for Restart Dogs, please fill in the application form below.
