For the insurance emporium,
charity begins at home...
At the Emporium, we are proud to be working with some fantastic charities, each of which strive tirelessly to improve the lives of both pets and people across the country. Find out more about these amazing organisations below.
Canine Partners are a charity dedicated to transforming the lives of people living with disabilities by training assistance dogs. These incredible assistance dogs are then partnered up with the ideal applicant, based on requirements and lifestyle. Founded in 1990, the charity selects candidate puppies from around seven to eight weeks old, training them for a total of 18 months. Canine partners deliver unbelievable psychological and social benefits to an individual. They offer companionship and security as well as being able to assist in everyday tasks as varied as doing the laundry or taking out money from a cash machine!
Dogs for good
Dogs For Good are an innovative charity, set up in order to explore the different ways in which dogs can help people overcome specific challenges, improve lives and benefit communities. These three set goals are addressed in their own unique ways. Assistance dogs offer support to adults and children living with a range of disabilities, as well as children with autism. Community dogs are trained as therapy and activity dogs so they can work with specialist handlers in schools and communities. The family dog team, speaks to families and advises them how best to develop and sustain the relationship with the family dog.
Hearing Dogs for Deaf People
Hearing Dogs for Deaf People train hearing dogs who bring about a transformation to the lives of deaf people. These talented animals can alert deaf people to everyday sounds that that they might miss like doorbells and alarm clocks, as well as other more important signals such as fire alarms or emergency sirens. The charity carefully pairs clever dogs with the right recipient, leaving deaf people with a happy dog that has been trained with fun reward-based games. Hearing dogs allow deaf people to develop independence and confidence, as well as providing companionship in what can seem a lonely world at times.
Medical Detection Dogs
Medical Detection Dogs leads ground-breaking work in the fight against cancer, as well as offering invaluable assistance to people with life threatening diseases. The charity does this by training Bio-Detection Dogs and Medical Alert Assistance Dogs. Bio-Detection Dogs are based at the training centre in Great Horwood and trained to scent the odour of diseases, particularly cancer, in human samples like urine, swabs and even breath. Medical Alert Assistance Dogs are placed at around 18 months of age, they’re with their owners constantly and are trained to identify unique odours which could indicate the onset of an medical crisis.
