Support Dogs UK are currently looking for more volunteers to help with their trainee dogs or puppies.

There are a range of roles available from being a bed and breakfast for pups in training to doggy drivers who help transport the dogs to and from the training centre.

People can also care for older dogs once their service to a disabled person has come to an end.
