They are loyal. They love you unconditionally. And they can change your life.
Welcome to Dog Bless You, the show about our best friends - dogs - and our love for them.
Hosted by Nikki Tibbles, founder of Wild At Heart Foundation, she speaks to people in the public eye who are dog lovers about how their pets have made an impact on their lives.
She also talks to experts and activists about the plight of some dogs - those in puppy farms or the 600 million strays world-wide - and what you can do to help stop that.
So whether you have adopted a rescue your companion, got one from a credible responsible breeder, or just love dogs, this is the show for you.

Don't You Want Me?
As a Valentine's Bonus, Nikki talks to Jack Jackson, co-lead of the Don't You Want Me project that aims to help members of the LGBQT+ community get rescue dogs and celebrates those who already have one via the Wild At Heart Foundation. As Jack explains, Queer and Trans people face a lot of discrimination and suffer from issues as a result that can lead to severe mental health problems. This can even extend to them having difficulty getting a rescue dog, which can be the life line they need to get better and is why the Wild At Heart Foundation is so proud to support it, helping to arrange adoptions, food with Butternut Box and insurance through Waggle.
The supermodel, entrepreneur and charity warrior talks to Nikki about why you should rescue a dog rather than get a designer puppy, the good work of Battersea and the Wild At Heart Foundation and what joy, Dora, his mongrel terrier brings him everyday. Last in this series but watch out for some bonus episodes soon!
