An expert on dog training gave an “entertaining and informative” talk to the Dunmow University of the Third Age at their last meeting.
Malcolm Wells is from Canine Partners – a charity that trains assistance dogs for disabled people.
He spoke about how dogs are partnered with humans to help with their daily lives, for example get the person dressed, take them out to the shops, and do their washing.
The dogs give both physical and emotional support to people whose lives are very difficult.
