WANTED! Loving Puppy Parents to become part of our team

We have thirteen Puppy Training Satellites nationwide and puppies (7 - 8 weeks and older) ready and waiting to be loved and socialised for anything between 2 -12 months. 


Reasonable travel expenses will be covered, puppy food, toys, equipment, all veterinary costs and training is provided. If you are keen to have one of our puppies share your life and family, please give us a call today!

 

You provide the love, and the puppy provides the fun and games!

In class and at home, you will learn what it takes for this bundle of mischief to turn into a fully trained and qualified Canine Partners Assistance Dog.


This is a very rewarding role and we all know how hard it may seem to give your puppy up, but seeing them progress, graduate and help people with disabilities is so worthwhile. Many Volunteer Puppy Parents are very proud to have now helped train several Canine Partners! They also get the opportunity to stay in touch with all the people involved including the Partnerships through our unique Partnership Days (like a graduation ceremony)!! Read some Volunteer Puppy Parents' stories in our Newsletters. 




Can you…

Be at home most of the day?
Have suitable transport to get the puppy around?
Attend weekly puppy classes? 

Follow Canine Partners’ training methods? 
Wave the puppy goodbye when your good work is finished? 
Enjoy the fun of classes and outings?
 

Do you…

Have a secure, dog-friendly garden? 
Have the stamina to manage an active puppy?

A date to go down in the history of Canine Partners

Andy Cook - Sunday, July 20, 2014
13th, July 2014 will be a date that will feature in the history of Canine Partners, when others look back from the future. It was on 13th July that Canine Partners really took a step forward in the Midlands, as His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester, patron of Canine Partners, made his first visit to our budding Midlands Centre, along with vice patron Roger Jefcoate CBE DL, and the Lord Lieutenant of Leicestershire, Lady Gretton.

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
