Set in Cambridgeshire at Wood Green’s 52-acre centre, series two of the programme will continue to follow homeless dogs being matched with hopeful new owners, as viewers are introduced to the aspiring new owners and dogs in the charity’s care.

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 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.

Clive Byles, CEO at Wood Green, said: “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.”

The charity rehomes around 700 dogs every year, as well as almost 1,800 cats and small animals. Dogs, in particular, are coming to Wood Green with increasingly complex needs, often needing extensive veterinary and behavioural rehabilitation.

Despite the fact that around 10,000 people enquire about rehoming a dog every month, the charity has a duty to match each dog with a new home that is equipped to manage their ongoing medical and training requirements. Unfortunately, this means Wood Green cannot help everyone looking to welcome a dog into their life.

However, Wood Green is here for all pet owners, especially new dog owners who are confronted with challenging behaviours that affect their relationship. Whether pet owners need behavioural advice, training classes or even financial support to help cover the cost of pet care (subject to assessment), the charity’s specialist team is dedicated to help.

Anyone seeking help with any aspect of pet care is encouraged to visit woodgreen.org.uk or call the Wood Green team on 0300 303 9333.

Series two of The Dog House will begin on Thursday, March 11, with eight weekly episodes shown at 8pm. The full series will also be available up-front on All 4.
