Meet Lizzie (cute black Labrador, born on the 20th March 2018) and Pippa (lively yellow lab, born on 16th February 2018).
Hill’s fundraising during #HGS2018 has enabled the Dogs for Good Charity to provide the support and early training for Lizzie and Pippa during first year with their puppy socialisers – Heidi and Andrew, who live in UK. It will also provide puppy starter kits which includes a crate, bed, food, water bowls, toys, identification working jacket, lead flash, collar and lead.
At around the age of sixteen months puppies socialisation will come to an end and they will return to Dogs For Good training centre in Banbury to meet their trainers.
We hope you will enjoy following these puppies progress during this very important first year, as well as further help Dogs for Good to support these puppies to complete their full training by making a personal donation via Fundraising Page.
