Our major client, Ceva has continued its work in the area of human, animal interaction by sponsoring a series of high profile events staged by the UK-based organisation, Dogs for Good.
The ‘Power of Dogs’ events were held at various UK locations and included a series of inspirational speakers giving different insights into the behaviour of dogs and all that they bring to us as humans. Good Call Media were there to film one of the events.
The talks were chaired by Peter Gorbing, the Chief Executive of Dogs for Good, a board member of Assistance Dogs International (ADI) and founder director of Animal Assisted Intervention International (AAII), the international umbrella organisation for practitioners in the field of AAI.
Dogs for Good is one of the UK’s leading practitioners of both assistance dog training and AAI through its Community Dog programme, training therapy dogs to work with dedicated handlers and healthcare professionals in a range of community settings.
Speaking at the ‘Power of Dogs’ event at the Royal College of Physicians in London, Martin Mitchell, Ceva’s Director of Group Communications, said :”We have been working with Dogs for Good for over a year now and the work they do is absolutely incredible.”
Part of Ceva’s sponsorship agreement with Dogs for Good is also being used to pull together all of the information that the charity has about dogs and their wellbeing.
“We have lots of information we share with our clients across all of our services, but the information was not collated in a any formal way or in very useable formats said CEO Peter Gorbing.
“We have now produced over 100 really useful bits of information all about dogs, dog care, building a bond with your dog and other information that will create a fantastic library. This will be really good for Dogs for Good clients in the short term, but longer term we are in discussion with Ceva about how we might bring that to the wider public as this will probably be the best library material about dogs that we have ever seen.”
