Apologies for this being bashed out in haste on my iPad, especially when I seem to have some sort of glitch, either on my recent iOS update or my brain; I'm not sure which.

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.
