Meet our amazing puppies at our Puppy Parties!
Please note: all of our Puppy Parties for 2017 have now taken place. If you are interested in becoming a puppy parent for Canine Partners, please visit our puppy parents page.
For the very first time, we are giving you the opportunity to meet our puppies at events across England and Scotland where you will also find out more about what it’s like volunteering as a puppy walker for Canine Partners.
Our puppy walker volunteers are called Puppy Parents and they look after our puppies from eight weeks old until they are 12-14 months old when they are ready to start their advanced training at one of our training centres.
So if you’d like to find out more about this opportunity, come and join us at a Puppy Party!
What are Puppy Parties?
Puppy Parties are run by our Satellite Coordinators who look after our existing Puppy Parents. The events are designed to give you the chance to:
- Find out who we are, and what we do
- Discover more about puppy walking and all that it involves
- See demonstrations from existing Puppy Parents showing what the training involves
- Take part in a Q&A session with your local Satellite Coordinator
- Chat with our Puppy Parents who are happy to share their experience
The sessions will run for approximately 2 hours.
If you are interested in becoming a puppy walker for Canine Partners, you will be able to fill in an application pack there and then or take one home with you.
