The Dog House is back!

We can't wait to invite you back behind the scenes of the work we do at our Cambridgeshire site. We hope you'll join us on Channel 4.

We’re very proud and honoured to once again be the home for Channel Four’s The Dog House!

With demand for dogs rising by 650% over the last year, our team of expert handlers and advisors have been very busy match-making abandoned pets with hopeful new owners.

Last summer, Wood Green worked intensively with the television crew at Five Mile Films to showcase the intricate rehoming process and create another heart-warming watch for Channel 4, despite challenges posed by the Coronavirus pandemic and extreme weather conditions. In a mammoth collaborative effort, nearly 50 families and dogs met each other – following both COVID-19 regulations and the highest welfare standards.

“I couldn’t be more proud of what we’ve achieved over the past year, and I can’t wait to share our stories with the nation once again. COVID-19 not only changed how we work, and how the show was filmed, but also caused a huge surge in demand on our services. Whilst our doors have been closed to visitors during lockdown, ‘The Dog House’ gives viewers an insight to what goes on in our beautiful corner of the Cambridgeshire countryside.”
