The many studies published recently on cognition, welfare assessment and practical management of companion animals inform us about what we can and should do to improve welfare. Hence better advice can be offered on aspects of training, living conditions, problem situations and genetic selection. Evidence concerning the impact of dogs and cats on wildlife, and the unsuitability of many animals as pets, may help to prevent some problems.
