Mum trains family dog to aid disabled daughter

A mother has trained her family dog to help her severely disabled daughter change clothes.

Izzy Pyne, from Nottingham, was born 16 weeks premature and cannot crawl, walk or talk.

Pepsi, a Labrador-cross, helps the two-year-old to sit up and get undressed.

Mum Heather, who is a qualified dog trainer, has since been inspired to set up Pawsitive Squad, a community interest company in Nottingham which supports disabled young people with assistance dogs.
