RAINESGIFT FLATCOAT IN TRAINING
At Crufts Dog Show in 2006 a young boy called Daniel and
his assistance dog Yogi won the hearts and minds of the British Public.
They had won Friends for Life a competition highlighting the many ways
in which dogs can make a difference to people’s lives. It highlighted
cases of bravery and also the supporting role in which individual dogs
play in peoples lives
I have been in regular contact with Wendy throughout Inzie’s
first year and she cannot begin to say enough good things about him. He
has been Wendy’s first Flat coat and I am glad to say he will not
be her last.
Inzie training at 9/10 months
Please come back for more updates on Inzie’s development and training

Dear Mrs Tomlinson
Thank you for donating Inzie to Dogs for the Disabled, so that he may be trained to become an assistance dog for a physically disabled adult or child.
I am now writing to update you on Inzie’s progress, here at the Banbury Centre.
You’ll be pleased to hear that he has successfully passed both his assessment phase and 12 week early training walk. This involves walking in numerous environments alongside a push manual wheelchair as well as various task-work including dumb-bell retrieve, push using a front paw on a target board and pull work i.e. socks.
Inzie is a lovely, confident chap with a great aptitude to task-work and as a natural performer has recently been used for an external demonstration.
Thanks again and best wishes for a very Merry Christmas and New Year.
Kind Regards - Cheryl Brading - Trainer - Dogs for the Disabled
