Nice Work Episode 3
Episode 3 starts as the centre prepares for new floors in the stable Block. We meet 'Molly', assessed, selected and rehomed to be a Search and Rescue dog, saved by people, now saving peoples lives. 'Gael' progresses to a larger flock and Sally and her 5 remaining pups go out together.

Nice Work Episode 4
Episode 4 shows a variety of dogs brought to the centre for assessment. 'Gael' goes solo, without 'Dot' to hold her paw. We meet 'Bryn', assessed and re-homed as a Police dog, detecting drugs, firearms and explosives. 'Sally' has a last run with her 3 remaining pups before she is re-homed.

Nice Work Episode 5
Episode 5 introduces 'Biting Shep' and RSPCA cruelty case, 'Natalia', both referred to BCR for behavioural modification. 'Rab' and 'Fly' - as different as chalk and cheese - help each other in their new home. Gael helps with final assessment of 'Sweep' and 'Trim', the last two pups from Sally's litter.

Nice Work Episode 6
Episode 6 shows Gael, now in charge of the sheep, helping with assessments at the centre, and gives insight as to how the charity raises some of the funds to pay for it all.
