Dog A.I.D. was established in 1992 and assists people with disabilities throughout the UK - improving their quality of life by helping them train their own pet dog to fully qualified Assistance Dog status. Assistance Dogs can help in many ways - from practical day-to-day tasks to summoning emergency help in certain circumstances. Additional outcomes include reduced social isolation, Greater self confidence, increased independence and reliance on health services and family members. 


A team of voluntary trainers undertake 1-2-1 training with clients in their own homes and local environments over 3 distinct, assessed, levels. This is reinforced by regular residential weekend workshops hosted at Stoke Mandeville in Aylesbury.
