Cockapoo breeder Jandaz Cockapoos has offered support to the national charity, Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, and donated two cockapoo puppies.
The Welsh breeder, based in Llandysul in Ceredigion, wanted to help the organisation that aims to offer companionship to deaf people by providing dogs that are trained to alert them to chosen everyday sounds.
After a chance meeting at Crufts – the world’s largest dog show – with representatives from Hearing Dogs For People, Jandaz Cockapoo provided two spritely puppies to the charity called Milo and Ruby.
Hearing Dogs for Deaf People was launched at Crufts in 1982 and has become a centre of excellence in training hearing dogs with more than 1,600 life-changing partnerships. The charity trains dogs to alert deaf people to important sounds and danger signals in the home, work place and public buildings.
Hearing dogs are provided to deaf people at no charge and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People receive no Government funding and rely on the generosity of individuals, groups and other organisations such as Jandaz Cockapoos. The Buckinghamshire-based charity trains each dog to the specific needs of the deaf person to create a life-changing partnership. Applications for hearing dogs are taken and processed every April and October.
Jandaz owner Janice Griffiths said “I was very touched by some of the stories I heard from the very kind people at Hearing Dogs for Deaf People at Crufts. The charity has been proving deaf people with hearing dogs for more than 30 years so we wanted to find a way we could help at Jandaz Cockapoos.
“Both Milo and Ruby both completed their socialising and soundwork training at the charity and passed with flying colours. We keep in touch and I am pleased to say that the Jandaz dogs are now actively helping deaf people in the community which is making a real difference to their quality of living. We are delighted to have been able to support such a worthwhile charity.”
Jandaz breeds all colours of cockapoo and supplies puppies to loving homes in the UK and overseas. All Jandaz Cockapoos include four weeks free PetPlan insurance and have been micro-chipped, vaccinated three times, health checked, wormed and treated for ear mites. All cockapoo parents are also eye-tested and Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) cleared.
Jandaz has puppies due to be born in late September through to November and recommend families place their orders soon to avoid disappointment.
