The Fetch & The Prince's Trust Partnership: Unleashing Potential

The Fetch & The Prince's Trust Partnership
In an electrifying week that will forever mark the annals of Fetch Dog Walking & Training Limited, we embarked on a groundbreaking journey in partnership with The Prince’s Trust, delivering our inaugural ‘Get Started In Dog Training’ course. Hosted at the heart of Birmingham, alongside the compassionate team at Birmingham Dogs Home, this initiative stands as a beacon of our commitment to nurturing the next wave of dog training professionals.

A Vision Comes to Life

After months of meticulous planning, online collaborations, and proposal drafting, our vision materialised into an enriching educational odyssey. Amidst the bustle of Birmingham, twenty bright-eyed young individuals joined us, handpicked from over a hundred applicants, to dive deep into the world of dog training. This pioneering course, a first for The Prince’s Trust, symbolises a significant milestone not just for us at Fetch, but for everyone involved.

With the unwavering support of our dynamic duo, myself (Damion) and Corinne, the course was more than just an instructional programme; it was a heartfelt mission to inspire, engage, and empower. As I took a brief hiatus from our Norwich operations, the remarkable Fetch team continued their dedication to your dogs’ adventures, ensuring no pause in the joy and care we’re known for.
