Seven pups lined up for domestic duties

A home with new owners where they will be expected to carry out a range of household chores – including helping with the laundry – lies ahead for up to seven puppies from a litter born in North Yorkshire.

The brood of Labrador pups are to be trained by national charity Canine Partners, in the hope they will soon be able to join the roster of pets which help bring greater independence to people with a range of disabilities by being trained to be a permanent companion and helper.

The seven pups – Poppy, Piper, Pam, Peony, Pepper, Prince and Huggy – have all left their mother, who lives in Pocklington, north Yorkshire, this week to start their training with the charity, based 300 miles away in West Sussex.

Canine Partners’ communications manager, Laura Molyneaux, told the York Press that the charity was trying to meet growing demand for its help, and its latest recruits would “one day go on to transform the life of the partner they are matched with.”
