More about Ruth:

"Having owned and bred my own dogs for many years I first Joined CP as a volunteer puppy parent and after several years as a puppy parent and fundraiser I took over as Satellite Puppy Trainer in 2010.
I 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 by giving talks, presentations and attending fundraising events with my own Chocolate Labrador Tiggy; a demonstration dog for the Charity and also mum to many Canine Partners.
My typical day may involve home visits to Puppy Parents, updating training and health reports, puppy testing, home checking prospective puppy parents or foster homes, planning the weekly class for puppy parents held in Upper Dicker, nr Hailsham. I also work with established Partnerships with the aftercare department.
Helping 8 week old bundles of mischief through to fully trained assistance dogs who change the lives of people with disabilities makes this a very rewarding role."

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
