This list is great - I never knew about any of these. I'm particularly interested by the hearing dogs page. Are they trained by volunteers, similar to guide dogs for the blind? I've been wanting to get into that.

Hi Brandon, thanks for your comment. I'm really pleased this post has been helpful. Yes the puppies are trained by volunteers, known as 'puppy socialisers'. No previous experience of dogs is required and anyone can apply! Take a look at this link for more details on how to become a puppy socialiser: http://www.hearingdogs.org.uk/what-we-do/our-puppies/puppy-socialising
