We are very proud to work closely with Sandra Geven and her team at ~ translated means 'Companion with a tail'. All of the team are passionate about dogs and they train them to work as assistance dogs for children with autism, downs syndrome and other special needs. It is extremely rewarding to know that my puppies give these children such comfort in what would otherwise be a scarey world for them. Some of our puppies have also gone to help families with special needs in the UK..
Stichting "Companion with a Tail" is a charity, established in Rotterdam (Netherlands).
The goal is to improve the quality of life and to enrich the independence of children and families living with autism, down syndrome and other special needs.
The team gives the organisation "Companion with a Tail" in Netherlands a unique service. We carefully select a puppy that is suitable for the needs of each child. The puppy is placed with the family so that both can adjust easily to eachother and grow as friends. We train the puppy with the family to the specific needs of the children, always working together, we believe that it is important for the children with special needs to bond with their puppy from an early age.
