Henry the Hedgehog Dog

Worker Finalist

Henry the Hedgehog Dog

Henry is a rescue dog who came to me at the age of 8 months. He had previously been in five other homes.  He had a difficult start to his life and lacked trust, and I have worked with him for years to bring out his own personality and focus his energy on his work. He is one of many rescue dogs at Conservation K9 Consultancy where we train dogs to help with conservation, wildlife research and ecology.

Henry has been working tirelessly with Hartpury University’s hedgehog expert Lucy Bearman Brown, People’s Trust for Endangered Species and British Hedgehog Preservation Society! He has proven that dogs can be one of the best tools to help survey and protect hedgehogs.  Already featured in one research paper and another to follow, Henry is a unique, unbiased and non-invasive tool to help protect our prickly hedgehog friends.

We are thrilled that Henry is a finalist for a Naturo SuperDog Award – he is inspiring, hard-working and challenging all in one. Regardless of whether he wins the worker category, he will always be our Hedgehog Hero, our rescue dog to super dog! He will always be our winner!

The hedgehog needs all the help he can get right now, can you believe our favourite wild animal is ‘vulnerable to extinction’? Thank goodness Henry and his team are there to help.

I have just come across Henry on this page and I’m so amazed at Henry’s job! As an ecologist and dog lover I would love to work with trained dogs surveying endangered and protected species and helping to collect vital data. What an amazing idea. I really hope that Henry wins his award. Best of luck Henry!
