Hampshire based pet company Billy+Margot has set tails wagging at Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, after agreeing a special partnership with the Buckinghamshire based charity to help treat the hard working hearing dogs that support recipients across the country.
The partnership means that in addition to Billy+Margot pledging to raise money for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People through a number of planned initiatives - recipients, staff and volunteers will also benefit from an exclusive discount to enable them to treat their hearing dogs to Billy+Margot’s delicious ‘doggy treats’ all year round.
The charity based on Wycombe Road in Saunderton, strives to create life-changing partnerships for deaf people and each dog is trained to the specific needs of the individual they have been matched to. The partnership with Billy+Margot will enable the charity to have a ‘paw-fect’ way to treat their hearing dogs when they order Billy+Margot treats through the website, whilst making sure the dogs maintain a healthy and nutritious diet.
To celebrate the partnership Billy+Margot Founder Marie Sawle took the opportunity to visit Hearing Dogs for Deaf People’s training centre of excellence in Saunderton to tour the facilities and welcome the first delivery of iced treats to twenty hardworking dogs at the centre.
Deborah Bourne, Corporate Relationship Manager at Hearing Dogs, said of the partnership; “Giving treats as a reward is a key element in training our hearing dogs. We are always so grateful of any donations that we receive from members of the general public or brands – the discount being offered to our recipients, volunteers and staff from Billy+Margot will really help. The iced treats for our dogs on the day were definitely a crowd pleaser too.”
Marie Sawle, founder of Billy+Margot further commented; “We could not be more delighted to be able to work with such a deserving and important charity. Visiting the centre was a humbling experience and it was inspirational to see the hard work that all the trainers there do.”
