Service summary

Dogs for the Disabled is a pioneering and life-transforming charity, which trains assistance dogs for children and adults with physical disabilities or Autism.

Pet owners are often reported as saying that their dog brings far more than just an excuse for a walk in the park. Many people find that their dog brings huge emotional and physical benefits, improving their fitness, relieving stress and helping as a social icebreaker.

Through practical tasks, the dogs offer freedom, emotional support and independence. In addition, having an assistance dog can become a reason to go out, provide a new found confidence that opens doors to fresh opportunities and creates a friendship. The partnerships created between people with disabilities and dogs can be positively life-changing.
