In the Southern Lakes


Grant and Judy Reid live in Arrowtown and are responsible for the Mobility Dogs Southern Lakes District puppy-raising club. Typically there are 4- 5 puppies being raised by families in this district. Both Judy and Grant come from a background of teaching; Judy as an English instructor and Grant as a university lecturer. Their canine experience started in Colorado back in the year 2000, raising puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind. After relocating to New Zealand in 2007, they became involved with the Mobility Assistance Dogs Trust, raising puppies and organising local public relations events. 

Over the years the Southern Lakes Team have graduated many outstanding dogs for the Trust. Jasper, Emmit and Merlin just to name a few.  

Grant is also involved in the Mobility Dogs 'Friends' group in Queenstown. A group which has recently been established (under the management of Trustee Emma Clarke) to further develop funding raising and event planning in Queenstown. Grant has completed a certificate as a Service Dog Instructor from the Bergin University of Canine Studies in California. Grant not only manages the puppy raising programme in Queenstown, he is also qualified to place dogs with recipients.
