Introducing Amber!

Amber and Elliot are one of our original partnerships. Amber has been his assistance dog for several years. Amber is three and half and is a golden cavapoo. Amber is a fully graduated assistance dog and helps Elliot when he returns from school each day. Amber helps Elliot keep calm and decompress after a long day at school. She will sit with him each afternoon and he tells her about his day.

Introducing Coco!

Coco really helps Peter in lessons, and Peter is doing a young handler’s course so he will be able to handle Coco without an adult. This is a real confidence booster for Peter and means he has added freedom and independence as he becomes a young adult. This is a big achievement for Peter and speaks volumes for Coco’s training and behaviour.
