Dog A.I.D. (Assistance In Disability)

Enabling Assistance - Intensive Courses

We currently train assistance dogs in owner's own homes. This pilot will look to develop a series of Intensive Residential Workshops where outcomes can be achieved over a number of one week courses spanning a 6-18 month period depending on individual progress.

Location

Situation

Access to assistance dog training opportunities for people with physical disabilities living in disparate / rural communities with limited access to traditional training provided by the charity (ie a trainer living within a 'reasonable' travelling distance of their home.)

Solution

Residential courses will enable a number of people with disabilities facing this problem to benefit from assistance dog training and also access a peer-to-peer support network by befriending similar individuals in the same trainee cohort (alongside other support networks offered by the charity).
