Vulnerable adults in Pembrokeshire are being trained as volunteer dog walkers to give them work opportunities they wouldn't otherwise get.
The community interest company SPPOT, which stands for Supporting People and Pets through Opportunities and Training, was set up two years ago by Kerri Bee.
She is a qualified dog behaviourist and also has 10 years experience of working with vulnerable adults.
Once training is complete, volunteers can offer dog minding services to people who are housebound due to physical disability, incapacity or old age.
Meilyr Tomas has just finished his training and says he is "very proud" to finally be an accredited volunteer dog walker.
SPPOT was recently nominated for the annual Aviva Broker Community Fund competition in Pembrokeshire and gained more than 4,000 votes from the public.
As a result, they were awarded a £10,000 grant which Kerri Bee says will be used to help train more people and support vulnerable dog owners.
