It’s all hotting up in the Canine Partners community. Deborah’s swimming like mad, in readiness for her amazing swim across the Solent. Ken’s coming to work with so much lycra he’s barely recognisable. (It’s not just a fashion statement - he also owns a bike). Holly’s getting so excited by all the big bluebell walks she’s organising that she can hardly sit still. And runners all across the south of England are in training for the Bright10 in the autumn. So if you can run, then run. If cycling’s your thing, then by all means peddle like your life depends on it. If it’s swimming that floats your boat, then go and get in that pool. Basically the whole Canine Partners family is doing whatever they can to raise funds and get fit at the same time, all in celebration of the fact that this is our 25th anniversary year. Read more
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.
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.
