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

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."
