Dog trainer to support Water Aid charity

Wed, 11 May 2011

A dog trainer from Colwall, Malvern will be donating all the takings from her next course to Water Aid, which is a charity committed solely to providing safe clean water to people in poorer parts of the world.

Sue Harper teaches dogs to ignore livestock . With the support of the Malvern Hills Conservators, she runs six-week courses in a field near to the Downs Malvern College school, in Colwall. Her next course, which starts starts on Sunday, May 22, presented her with an opportunity to help support a cause which means so much to her.

She said: "This year I intend to ask participants to make the 60 cheques for the course payable to Water Aid instead of to me. Having spent a month training dogs in a poor rural area of India I have become very aware of the burden women bear in many areas of the world walking miles carrying water. I am in the privileged position of following a career I love, living and working in this beautiful area which has close connections with, and an abundance of, free water."
