Assistance Dog Training
Assistance Dog on site
One of our parents has recently become a recognised trainer of an assistance dog. In time the puppy she is training will become an assistance dog for someone with a disability. Having taken advice from the Local Authority, I can confirm that the puppy being trained has the privileges of, for example, a guide dog for the blind, and is therefore permitted to be on the site.
Having spoken with the parent who is training the puppy, she has requested that people do not ‘pet’ the puppy unless they have asked her permission. The puppy has to get used to busy public places, but the trainer needs to decide the level of attention the puppy gets from individuals – very difficult as he is so adorable right now!
Thank you for your understanding in this matter. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
