After a long application process Vivi and our family (the team) were assessed by ‘Dogs for the Disabled’ and they agreed Vivi would benefit from an assistance dog. Despite being prepared to wait up to a year, Vivi was ‘matched’ very early with ‘Suzie’ a very calm, sweet natured Golden Retriever. We have now been in training for 3 weeks!! Suzie (pictured) is settling in well and we are working towards our first ability assessment with the trainer and examiner on August 1st. Our newly learnt skills will be needed to show control of both wheelchair and assistance dog. Wish us luck!
