Punk is a Rottweiler puppy who is training to become a Dual Trained Assistance Dog for his owner who suffers with CMT (a degenerative muscle wasting neurological condition), which results in poor balance, lack of feeling in limbs and difficulty with mobility which may eventually require a wheelchair. In addition to this, he will be an emotional support dog to support his owner with Autism, helping to relieve anxiety.
Our Online Academy enables us to provide life changing training to dog owners with disabilities who require an assistance dog to give them freedom and independence.
During Punks 4 week training stay, we taught him some essential tasks such as opening doors, turning on lights, retrieving items, giving space and carrying things. We’ve also built a high level of obedience training in a variety of busy environments, preparing him for his assessments and access tests when he is old enough
