Sponsor a puppy: meet Willow
Willow is a Labrador puppy who we are raising and training to become an assistance dog as part of our Pay it Forward Campaign to help Owner Trained Assistance Dogs
100% of our income generated from our Online Academy memberships is donated towards training puppy's like Willow, as well as providing gifted and discounted residential stays for our assistance dog members
Willow was donated to us at 10 weeks of age from AG Labradors in the UK where they gave him the very best start to his socialisation and early training.
We have since taken Willow through our own successful socialisation programme, and are working through his training daily, the same way as we do with dogs who come to stay with us for residential training
Our main focus for Willow's training has been to ensure he is well socialised, and therefore indifferent to dogs and people in his environment, confident to navigate all kinds of busy places, and focused on his handler.
We have also worked on teaching Willow 'how' to learn, teaching him the foundation skills he will need to be able to learn any task that his new family may need.
Willow already has a family lined up for him, so he will be supporting a child with Autism. He will be learning tasks some as performing deep pressure therapy, anxiety relief, interrupting meltdowns, crowd control and getting dressed, so that his handler can begin to feel confident communicating with those around him, build some independence and feel confident leaving the house
