My name is Jan and my assistance dog is called Whisper, we are from Ross on Wye in Herefordshire and I am a volunteer trainer for Canine Generated Independence (CGI). I used to be a full time lecturer at Hereford and Ludlow College (Health and Social Care and Childcare) until Fibromyalgia and arthritis caused my health to deteriorate.
I am (or I should say Whisper is) taking part in the 10km race. I will be using my electric wheelchair.
I am raising money for Canine Generated Independence
Training tips: Build up gradually, keep it fun, don’t push yourself (or your dog/carer) too hard and drink enough water.
