Bedford Puppy Training Satellite

Lorraine Lotan, Satellite Co-ordinator at Clapham, specialises in promoting responsible dog ownership, making dog training fun for dogs and owners in obedience and agility. “I have owned rescue German Shepherds and Shepherd crosses & now have an 8 year old Golden Retriever called Molly and a 4 year old German Shepherd called Willow. I have two young children and own a company called Happy Dog Training & Grooming. Classes vary from puppy pre-school, puppy tumble-tots, obedience, agility and clicker training. I worked for Guide Dogs for the Blind for several years, starting out as Kennel Staff, (hard work but I loved it) moving on to be a Guide Dog Trainer which was very rewarding.

It is great to be back in the Assistance Dog world and I thoroughly love being involved with Canine Partners, recruiting and managing a team of volunteer Puppy Parents, training them and the puppies, helping to fundraise and promote the charity. I have been asked what motivates me; Chocolate!! (Oh and the odd glass of wine!), seeing how the Canine Partner dogs change the lives of people with disabilities, helping people understand and build a better relationship with their dogs. Every day is different; an ability to be flexible, work under pressure, think on your feet and have a sense of humour is a must.“

CEO's Blog

More dogs trained already and the intrepid CEO visits the big smoke (twice)

23 Jan

I don’t often get to put a suit on. Going to London Town always seems like a good excuse to pretend I’m a commuter, otherwise the dust tends to settle on the old dark blue M&S cloth. So the last two weeks have been pretty exciting, as I’ve had not just one but two occasions to take the train up from Sussex and get lost on the underground. The reason for the visits has been to visit venues where we are holding events this year in celebration of our 25th anniversary – the London Charterhouse looks amazing and will make a stunning backdrop for an event we will be holding in June, while the Cavalry and Guards Club looks similarly brilliant. We have been lucky enough to be granted a donation by the Club to allow us to put on an event there in September. Read more


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
