Dog - Hertfordshire Kennels
Published on February 10, 2021 by James Lindsay

Having housed thousands of new arrivals over the years, the dog admission kennels at our Hertfordshire centre are really showing their age.

The first few days in a rescue centre are quite overwhelming for most dogs, as they start to adapt to life in a new environment. Dogs like Socks, who came to us as a stray, frightened and cowering, unsure of his new surroundings and people.

We all like to think of our pets as ‘one of the family’ and as such, like to make them feel loved and at home. Some accessories, like a collar or a hutch, are basic necessities, whilst others, such as a multitude of outfits or a spa-style activity, could be seen as slightly less than ‘essential’.

Here at NAWT, we thought it would be interesting to look back at how pet accessories have changed over the last five decades…

The week of April 1-7 every year is an opportunity to educate pet owners on the importance of cleaning up after their dogs - inform them of the hazards of dog poop to human health, and the environmental risks it poses when left unattended.

The Association of Professional Animal Waste Specialists (aPaws) estimates that pet pooches produce over 4.4 billion pounds of waste per year (2 billion litres).
