A day trip to the Isle of Wight and Folly goes to Crufts

03 Mar

It doesn’t get better than the Isle of Wight does it? All that sunshine and the smell of salty brine and fish as the ferry gently chugs across the inviting blue sea, its flag rustling in the warm breeze. And that’s pretty much what it was like on Wednesday when I visited our army of volunteer puppy parents as they met for their weekly puppy class in Godshill Scout Hall. All of the above applied, plus a choc chip cookie on the voyage over, just to put the icing on the cake. The only fly in the ointment was the early start in order to check in at 7.30am at Portsmouth Harbour, but that’s ok. We ‘sea dogs’ like early starts, after all.   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
