After Care and Retirement

Aftercare

The Partnership Office allocates one of our Aftercare Assistants to provide support to every partnership, ensuring they are long-lasting, happy and healthy. Each partnership receives a minimum of 7 visits in the first year and at least 2 visits annually (6 monthly) thereafter, until the dog retires.

After Care and Retirement

Retirement

A partnership will last for as long as the dog remains fit and healthy and the Partner is able to manage and care for the dog. We are dedicated to ensuring that during retirement our dogs continue to enjoy happy and contented lives. This may involve the dog remaining with their Partner or identifying a new, loving home. The dog's well-being remains at the heart of all decisions made.


Partners will often apply for a "successor dog" when their original dog starts to near retirement.

Canine Partners’ Leicestershire Training Centre

Canine Partners needs to raise £3.1million to build a second Training Centre in order to train more dogs and change more lives.

We have purchased a site in a village called Osgathorpe, halfway between Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Loughborough, which has a range of barns, outbuildings and associated land. The plan is to replace the barns and adapt some of the outbuildings to create the specialised buildings we need.

Having a Midlands Training Centre will not only increase our output, it will also make the charity far more accessible for those on our waiting list who are unable to make the long journey to our centre in West Sussex. 42% of the applications we received last year were from people living in the mid and northern regions of the UK. Many of our existing partnerships will also benefit from being able to receive support from the new centre.

The site will consist of a training centre and office facilities, fully accessible accommodation and kennelling.

This is an extremely exciting time for Canine Partners and we would be delighted to receive your support.

For more information about this project, please contact Cat Harvey on 01730 716018 or email catharvey@caninepartners.org.uk

Jobs available at the new centre will be advertised on our Vacancies page here: Work for us
