Isle of Wight Puppy Training Satellite

"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.

Partnerships, half marathons, pups and record-breaking T towels

27 Mar

Blimey! It’s been a busy couple of weeks! I reckon the last time I spoke to you, we were about to head up to Crufts, which seems like an age away now. Didn’t Katy & Folly do us absolutely proud?! I lose count of the people who contacted us, so inspired were they by their story. Other highlights were our Main Arena display, which was broadcast live on YouTube, and a hectic time on our stand resulting in nearly £4,000 in donations and merchandise sales. We almost added to this figure because staunch volunteer Suzetta couldn’t get the hang of the posh new electronic till, and tried charging several people £4,950 for a tea towel (They’re good, but they’re not that good). 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
