Spring Fayre

Thank you to everybody who joined us at our Spring Fayre yesterday, what a great day...and the weather was brilliant too!
We hope you all enjoyed yourselves, we certainly did, it was great to see so many of the dogs who have been re-homed come back to say hello and so many we didn't know but soon did.
There was fun in the Fun Dog Show, the Agility, Bliss Gate Training and the Dancing Dogs, what a treat, well done everyone, you are all winners in our eyes,The stalls were busy introducing people to their speciality's and offering advice and information when needed.
Thank you again to all our wonderful volunteers for all your hard work, we value your company and time so much. We know your own free time is so precious and to give that up to support FDR for 2 week ends on the trot is extremely kind and appreciated by us all, thank you each and everyone of you.

We do try to thank everyone for their kindness and continued support towards FDR and hopefully we don't miss anyone, nothing is taken for granted and we consider this charity to be truly blessed by so many, thank you each and everyone of you

the Month




Kenco came in originally as a stray back in July 2016 at the grand age of 5 months, luckily he found a home almost immediately. After 7 months we get a phone call completely out the blue to say he had to come back straight away as they were unable to manage his behaviour.

Apparently he was very dominant and had become aggressive towards some dogs. He also acted up with a friend who was trying to stop him chewing his lead whilst walking two other dogs at the same time.

We have assessed him and to be fair the owners 

have obviously put a lot of time and effort into training this boy which makes this even more heartbreaking. 

He is super attentive (although gets bored quite quickly), he sits, gives paw, his wait is to die for, can walk like a dream when he is focused and has not reacted to a single dog even ones that have kicked off at him, he actually just wants to play with the dogs he sees when he is out walking, that being said he might be a bit to full on for some dogs.

  If you get Kenco's attention and he is absolutely stunning. Yes on occasion he gets bored and grabs hold of the lead which he thinks is a great game of tug of war but we are working on this and he is is coming along leaps and bounds!

Kenco loves to be off the lead and have a good run around and loves playing with toys. He is super energetic so will need an experienced, active home that can stimulate him mentally as well as physically. There is so much fun to be had with Kenco and in the right home he would make a great pet! 

No to cats and no children under 5

If you think you can offer Kenko the homes he so deserves, please contact the kennels on
