Four fantastic speakers, all sharing one great passion

Join us on Thursday November 14th for a unique evening event taking place at the iconic SS Great Britain in Bristol. Four inspiring and engaging speakers will share with us their stories about the power of dogs and all that they bring to us as humans.


Our speakers will each share their experiences about the impact that dogs have made to their own lives, both personally and professionally. Hear why we have developed such strong bonds with dogs over the centuries and why, in an increasingly digital world, dogs continue to play such an important role in our lives. Find out how dogs see the world from a renowned academic and get top tips for capturing dogs at their best from an industry-acclaimed director.

This evening promises to be entertaining, inspiring and thought-provoking.

Watch last year’s Power of Dogs event

In 2018, we were delighted to welcome some great speakers to our events in Oxford, London and Cambridge. Watch Brian Blessed’s talk about his very special relationship with his pet dogs.


“I would thoroughly recommend attending a Power of Dogs event.  It was an informative and enjoyable evening.  The stories of how dogs enhance and transform people’s lives were truly inspiring and just made me appreciate dogs even more!”  Cordelia Langford, last year’s Power of Dogs event attendee.
