Canine Partners: puppy parents
In this video, we visit Canine Partners to find out about 'puppy walking' for Canine Partners and how the 'puppy parents' play a vital role in helping the charity to help disabled people.
Someone who looks after an assistance dog and provides initial basic training before the dogs are sent for specialist training is usually called a 'puppy walker'. Canine Partners call their 'puppy walkers' 'puppy parents'. Sue Simms speaks to us about her experience of undertaking this role. She outlines the kinds of skills the pups are required to learn during the first 12 months of their training and how Canine Partners like these to these to be taught. We meet Griffin the puppy she currently looks after.
