Frankie Howard | Canine Behaviourist

I got my first break in wildlife rehabilitation, working with injured and abused wildlife in Ireland. Teaching them the skills they needed to be released back into the wild and thrive. This eventually led me to rescue work.


Over the past ten years I have worked with various sanctuary and rehoming centres throughout the UK and Ireland; Including Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in London. Many Tears Animal Rescue in Wales and I now operate and manage a pioneering rescue in Manchester; Dogs4Rescue - a kennel free open-air sanctuary specialising in pack rehabilitation and taking the dogs that other kennel based shelters cannot cope with - or dogs which are on the path to the euthanasia table. 

My mission is to save as many dogs as possible from ending up in shelters and behavioural euthanasia - my work at Dogs4Resue allows me to be immersed with some of the UK's most problematic dogs every day. Rehabilitating and rehoming these dogs is a challenging but rewarding experience. However, it's only part of the solution; we need to stop dogs from entering shelters in the first place. 

I believe by intervening early before owner's feel they need to give up their dog we can prevent more dogs from entering UK shelters and therefore prevent unnecessary euthanasia. My goal is to educate the UK on better care and training for their dogs and get every dog in UK shelters into a happy, safe and appropriate home.
