A puppy from the charity Dogs for Good is set to to star in ITV’s new series PUPPY SECRETS: The First Six Months.
The charity trains assistance dogs to help children and adults lead more independent lives. Neave will be one of the stars of the new two part series which will be broadcast on ITV1 at 8-9pm on Wednesday 19 and Wednesday 26 October.
Neave, who is a Labrador Golden Retriever cross, is destined to become a life-changing assistance dog and will one day play an invaluable role in supporting a child or adult with a disability or a child with autism.
Supporting and training a dog like Neave from birth to fully trained assistance dog will cost the charity £12,000, and £20,000 to fund her whole working life. The charity relies entirely on donations to support its work.
The first programme in the series follows the charity’s litter of pups from just a day old and charts their development week by week until the momentous day Neave moves to her new home with a volunteer puppy socialiser. The programme will show the charity’s breeding programme and the care and assessment undertaken to ensure the pups have the best possible chance of succeeding as assistance dogs.
Watch the first episode of PUPPY SECRETS: The First Six Months at 8pm Wednesday 19 October on ITV.
