Canine Partners

A £5,000 grant from ERSF has covered the cost of purchasing and training a puppy to become a Canine Partners assistance dog.

Guppy is a yellow Labrador who was born on 27 May. She will be trained by one of the charity’s dedicated volunteer puppy parents at the Puppy Training Satellite in Hampshire until she is around 18 months old.

After this, she will go to the Training Centre to learn her advanced tasks and she will also be assessed to see if she has the skills required to become a Canine Partners assistance dog.

“We are extremely grateful for your support and for enabling us to start another puppy on our training programme,” said Sara Read, Canine Partners Trusts and Grants Officer.
