The Common Dog Violet is most often found on short, grazed calcareous turf and limestone scree.  In lowland Britain it is more commonly a woodland species, but is also found on wasteland, river banks and rocky outcrops.

In the garden it can be used in partially shaded areas, damp rock gardens and in the front of an herbaceous border.

The plant is an early nectar source for butterflies and is the larval host plant for a range of Fritillary butterflies, including the Small Pearl-Bordered, the Pearl-Bordered and the Silver-Washed Fritillaries.
