  • Battersea Dogs home teams up with LBC for abandoned dogs

    Unfortunately, even in 2016, abandoned dogs are still a huge problem in the UK. In partnership with London based (available nationally via digital) radio station LBC, Battersea dogs home have launched a week long campaign to help rehome some of the abandoned dogs Battersea have had to take in.

    Monday’s dog, Artu, a Husky cross came all the way from Italy, while Wednesday’s dog was an eight year old Staff, bought in as a stray by a member of the public. The dogs had a great time appearing live on air;

    Rehoming stray dogs is always a tricky affair, we’ve found a number of the larger rehoming centres and charities won’t allow you to adopt a dog if you have small children in the house (one place we spoke to had a lower age cut off of 13!). We can only assume that in these cases, the rehoming centres don’t want to be responsible for a dog that ultimately hurts a child, but my view would be that if you were concerned the dog might get itself into trouble, then it probably shouldn’t be rehomed anyway! Other countries, like Australia don’t seem to have such restrictions and therefore, it would appear, to have much shorter list of dogs waiting to be rehomed. Bringing a dog into a child’s life can have huge benefits to both the child and the dog. Children develop a sense of responsibility, they learn to care and they learn how to behave around other peoples dog and other animals they may meet.

    Lets home this latest campaign gets more dogs where they should be – In a caring and loving home with owners of every age, out walking, exploring and sharing adventures.

  • Inner Wolf Offer Customers a Loyalty Reward Scheme

    Inner Wolf Loyalty Points - What Are They?

    Loyalty points are earned when you buy anything from us with an account based on the total value of that order. Every £1 you spend earns you 1 point. 40 points will earn you £1 off you next order.. For example if you were to spend £40 that would get you 40 points - equal to £1 of credit which can optionally be deducted from a future order. The next time you went to order, on the "view basket" screen it will show you that you have outstanding points and you can optionally click to use them against that order, or save them up for later use. We tried to make the process as simple as possible for you to use, and you will notice that we have not adjusted our prices to compensate for giving away points so they really are a discount! The more you spend the more points you earn. They never expire, if you come back after placing an order now in 2 years time your points will still be here! ( subject to terms and conditions at the bottom of this page ). Loyalty points are issued only when the order has been placed, and only for orders made with an account, which is of course free and easy to sign up for.

    How do I use them?

    In order to earn and then later use the points you must have an account with us ( so that we can store the points ) - so just log in before checking out or fill in the password fields to create one during checkout. Simple! Once logged in you can see the current status of your points by checking your account home screen.

    Loyalty points terms & conditions

    In order to use the loyalty points in any way you must agree to following ( standard legal stuff! ):

    • We reserve the right to terminate the loyalty points scheme at any time without prior notice. (although we have no plans to do so currently ).
    • Loyalty points are completely virtual and have no real world value. As such you cannot claim them back for cash.
    • Points are issued entirely at our discretion and are not an entitlement. However we endeavour to have them issued automatically and evenly without bias, providing you have or create an account during the checkout process.
    • We reserve the right to adjust the value of points, both for points yet earned and already earned without prior notice.
    • We reserve the right to adjust the number of points earned per amount spent at our discretion without prior notice.
    • Points will never be issued historically, the points system was created on 04/08/2010 and only orders after that date will earn points - subject to these conditions.
    • If you use your loyalty points and gain a totally free order, we can only ship that order to the UK.
    • Lastly we reserve the right to change the points system in any way - again points are not an entitlement but a bonus given and applied to an order at our discretion.
  • Walking Routes in and around North Devon

    One of the most enjoyable aspects of a stay in glorious North Devon is the stunning scenery and abundance of walks. Some visitors are looking for pet friendly holidays and among those wishing to bring their dogs, many are seeking out dog friendly caravan parks. Once they have settled in their Devon holiday, dog owners looking for a healthy walk for young dogs can head for Exmoor where the rugged terrain is ideal. There is also gentler countryside in North Devon where a streamside amble may be just right for older dogs. Whatever their needs, dog owners have come to the right place to find walks perfect for man's best friend. Whilst there are plenty of walking books covering North Devon, only a few contain useful advice on the dog friendliness of each walk. Responsible dog owners know how important it is to respect other users of the countryside by keeping their dogs under control, particularly when close to livestock. The Exmoor valleys around Badgworthy Water have been made famous by R D Blackmore's novel Lorna Doone. This is the heart of wild Exmoor where the landscape ranges from open, grass and heather-covered moor to delightful enclosed valleys. Dog walkers may encounter livestock at various places so they need to keep their dogs well under control. Horse riders are also often found in the Doone Valley. There is a 5 mile walk starting from Malmsmead that heads southeast up Lank Coombe past the Blackmore Memorial, which is a large boulder with a metal plaque that was set up in 1969 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Lorna Doone’s publication. The walk continues past a footbridge, and keeps to the right of Badgworthy Water. Towards the top of the coombe, the walk passes the waterslide where John Ridd scrambled up and collapsed on the grass a little further up. It was here he was found by the 9 year old Lorna. After the waterslide and beyond the trees, walkers reach the highest point of the walk with fine views across Exmoor. They can then bear right to join the track back to Badgworthy Water. Dippers, kingfishers and mallard ducks can be found at this lovely spot, the childhood haunt of John Ridd. Walkers and their dogs can then retrace their steps back to the footbridge and cross it, passing Cloud Farm. The walk continues along a farm road and tracks towards Oare Church and House and returns to Malmsmead along delightful riverside paths.

Scootering is a safe and controlled means of keeping up with your fast and exercise hungry dogs, allowing them to run as a team to burn off their excess energy.

To combat these issues and to open the sport up to the weekend enthusiast, we've developed a 'Mini-Rig' - A foldable, compact, light weight (14.6Kg), easily maintained version - 'Dax-Scooter' This innovative folding design has good ground clearance, frame and fork suspension, great stability disk brakes and obviously compacts to be stored or transported.
