How Virtual Giving Works
1. Choose a gift and purchase
There are 18 gifts to choose from. Your gift to the puppies will provide critical training and support to them as they undertake their journey to becoming a Guide Dog or Autism Assistance Dog.
2. Total pool increases
Your pledge amount is added to the total equipment purchase pool; held in trust and ready to purchase vital equipment for the puppies as required.
3. Puppies receive presents!
At each stage of their development, your virtual gift will provide the equipment necessary to allow the puppies to play, learn and grow in to a Guide Dog or Autism Assistance Dog and change the lives of people living with disability.

Puppy Bowl (VG01)
Yep, I love food - any time of the day when I'm little and growing fast. A special puppy bowl makes dinner time even more exciting. Perhaps I'll have my own name on it, too!

Massage and Grooming (VG05)
I work hard to help my friend, so every now and then it's nice to have a little extra attention. I work hard and I play hard. After all, it's not easy looking this cute every day! So, a massage and grooming session is the perfect 'chill-out' time and will keep me looking like a movie-star. Now, wheres' my mirror?

White Cane (VG07)
Sometimes, only a cane will do. If the weather is very hot, I can stay at home in the cool. I'm glad that my new friend can use the cane too - being a Guide Dog is extra hard work in hot weather. Phew!

AAD Coat (VG08)
When I am working as an Autism Assistance Dog (AAD), everyone around me needs to know I have a special job. When I wear a bright yellow AAD coat, it is easier to understand that I am keeping my young friend safe from harm.

Distraction Training for one Hour (VG09)
When I'm working, distraction is not an option - which is a shame, because there are so many fun things to chase when 'out-and-about'. So I learn not to notice other dogs, birds or cats. The safety of my new friend is much more important.

Wobble Board (VG10)
Wibble wobble - what fun! We can walk over it, balance on it and slip off and on it. This wobble board is like a puppy balance beam. If we try really hard, we can pretend we are surfing... without the sea spray!

Personality Test (VG11)
Training and matching my new friend and I can be tricky. We have to spend lots of time together so my trainers know that my personality matches the needs of my new friend. It is an exciting time!

Blankets and Whelping Box (VG14)
My box is the best place in the world when I'm little. It's just Mum, me and my brothers and sisters all snuggled up together with some blankets until I'm three-weeks-old. After three weeks we are all too big for our whelping box and we're ready to explore!

Group Training for 1 Day (VG15)
School's in! My brothers, sisters and I just love training sessions and there are lots of people to help us. We are proud to work with our Trainers - and have some fun too. Training costs a LOT of money though. Maybe you can help?
