You Are Here : Isle of Wight
"My name is Deborah Flux and I have been working as Satellite Co-ordinator on the IOW since April 2011 and have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the CP team. We have a great team of volunteers on the Island and try to do as much fundraising as we can at the local shows and other act ivies. I have been involved in CP since the satellite began 5yrs ago. I have three dogs of my own 2 golden retrievers and a whippet, they are very good and accept any puppies that might come and stay for a few days. Angel, my Goldie who is 4yrs old has also been with CP since she was a puppy and is now a demo dog and comes with me when I do the talks at schools , WI and many other groups that ask us along to tell them about our work. She is a very gentle dog and loves children and enjoys showing of her skills.
I run my own Dog Grooming business and have met some wonderful people and their dogs over the last 22yrs.
I have been training my own dogs for over 25yrs and help on a weekly basis at the local dog training class.
I love living on the IOW as we have access to some fantastic walks, my favourites are on the beaches or on Mottistone Downs, which has great views.
I have two daughters, the youngest who married last April and the eldest who is having a baby this year, so I am looking forward to being a Granny and introducing the baby to all the dogs. When I have a quiet moment I like to relax with a good book."
We have a super group of volunteers and they have been busy fundraising for Canine Partners too.
We are always looking for puppy parents to help train more puppies on the Island and welcome those interested in volunteering to call Debbie and arrange popping along and meet us all, normally at Godshill Scout Hut on Wednesday mornings.
