Our fantastic calendars are available from the kennels now for a minimum donation of 6 pound while stocks last! They feature dogs that have been adopted in the past where we it either took a long time for them to find that home or they had a sad back story to why them found themselves with us. The donations from the calendars go towards the care of our present and future wellidogs.

DEXTER Spends The Day With Marboo Dogz To Become a TV Star!

Meet ex Wellidog Dexter, lending a paw to Marboo Dogz on a TV set with the cast filming ?????? Shhhhh, we can’t say, but as soon as we can we’ll tell you – Top Secret 😉

If we didn’t know any better we’d believe he was a real police dog! But instead, this is Dexter… who was rescued by Wellidog, and adopted and loved by Linda and Kyra… Who was in a sorry state, quite poorly, skin and bones, and scared of everything (especially other dogs, and even the sound of water going under the drain on the street) 😦 But look at him now!! Isn’t he just a super handsome boy standing tall and proud with other stunning GSD’s (and some quite cute Actors dressed as Policemen too 😉 )

Go Dexter!! ❤ We’re So Proud of You Handsome Boy…

Our Gorgeous Boy WILL is a TV STAR!

WILL had some very special visitors from the BBC, including Dr Kendal Shepherd!

She believes that with three simple rules you can gain control of your four-legged friend…  Just watch how she got him to lay down for a belly rub within less than an hour of meeting him 🙂

This boy deserves a loving home as much as any other dog…  Watch his TV debut and you’ll see that his bark was definitely much louder than his bite 😉

WILL and JESSIE’s Day at The Beach

There’s nothing better than a little paddle in the Ocean on a summers day…  That is unless you are the lovely Jessie 😉 Will had a FANTASTIC time getting his pawsies wet, but Jessie was having none of that! …although she did have a lovely time just watching the sea at Hunstanton and relaxing away from Kennels for the day ❤

Will on the other hand absolutely LOVED paddling in the sea…  And Ice-Cream! Can you believe that Jessie doesn’t like Ice-Cream? No, neither could we… But their lovely caretakers Josh and Charli did, so nothing went to waste… And what trip to the seaside would be complete without Fish & Chips, which went down well with all of them! …even Lady Jessie 🙂

Our hearts were just bursting seeing these two get out of the kennels for the day and experiencing life ❤ Hopefully one day, they will both meet their special ‘someone’ who will want to share experiences just like this with them…

Look at them… They absolutely loved it ❤ ❤ ❤

OLLIE Makes Some New Friends at Barclaycard Whilst Raising Funds for Wellidog

Many of you may have met OLLIE who is a very handsome Estrellas Mountain Dog, and honorary Wellidog and Fundraising mascot? If you haven’t had the pleasure of cuddling this gorgeous boy yet, he is often spotted winning hearts and sniffing out loving homes for his Wellidog friends with his hardworking and dedicated Mum, Linda (our very own Christmas Cracker) around the county.

On Tuesday (12th April) Linda, Julie and Zena took Ollie to Barclaycard where he got to hang out with one of his football heroes; Cobblers player Paul Corry! He’s been impressed ever since and loving the good weather as he can brush up his ball skills just in case he’s invited again 😉

We cannot thank Barclaycard enough for everything they do to support us. They made us feel extremely welcome and provided us with our own stand for the day. We managed to raise £113.60 which will go towards helping our deserving and very special Valerie, and the costs of her ear operations 🙂 We had such a lovely time and met some equally lovely people.

Thank you for your ongoing kindness, support and hospitality 🙂

With Love and Licks from Ollie and his PR Team; Linda, Julie and Zena ❤

Canine Coaching Give Wellidogs a Helping Hand

On the morning of Monday, 7th December 2015 Canine Coaching will be kindly supporting us by donating time to help exercise our dogs.


The Canine Coaching team get set to help local dog rehome centre

Helping-a-local-dog-rehome-centre

“This year I decided I would do something to help a local rescue centre with the ever increasing number of dogs that find themselves in rescue.

As Canine Coaching, we contacted Lillian of Wellingborough Dog Welfare offering our services for the morning. After checking with the Trustees and Kennel Manager Naomi, they eagerly accepted our offer.

One of the best ways to focus, balance and build a bond with any dog is through structured exercise. Quality exercise forms a crucial part of a dog’s life therefore this is to be the basis of my approach.

On Monday 7th December 2015, Mel, Barbara and I will be supporting this local charity by donating a morning of our time to help exercise the kennel dogs.

Paying it forward in this manner allows me to share my behavioural knowledge to benefit dogs less fortunate than our own.”

Paul Daly, Canine Coaching

Gemma and Jon’s Iron Run for Wellidog Raises a Whopping £535!

When it comes to fund-raising we quite simply have THE BEST supporters 🙂

Gemma and Jon successfully competed in the Iron Run at the weekend, and finished with (thankfully) no injuries other than a few scrapes and bruises 🙂 and their magnificent effort means they have managed to raise a whopping £535 for Wellidog!

THANK YOU SO MUCH GEMMA AND JON ❤ …AND THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO SPONSORED THEM ❤


But… For anyone who is wondering why anyone would be crazy enough to put themselves through it, their inspiration is this gorgeous fella here…

BILLY - An ex-Wellidog who inspired Gemma and Jon's Iron Run
BILLY – An ex-Wellidog who inspired Gemma and Jon’s Iron Run

Meet Billy, an ex-Wellidog who went to live with Gemma and Jon temporarily, and never left 🙂

In Gemma’s own words…

“He was so poorly when he was at Wellidog, and scared. Naomi did an amazing job with him and she thought he was going to die. I’d been walking him and I couldn’t leave him – so we fostered him, and the rest is history! Failed fosters!”

We do love our failed foster parents 😉

They have since gone on to foster two other dogs who have been placed with lovely families, and continue to support Wellidog on a daily basis.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT FOR WELLIDOG, AND CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR AMAZING ACHIEVEMENT! ❤
