As a non profit organisation, we are proud to offer a variety of affordable and accessible services. We offer services to 3 main client groups - disabled children & young people, health, education, social and non-profit professionals who support disabled and vulnerable children through their service and Nottingham pet dog owners.
Our assistance dog program is one of the most comprehensive programs available with 3 hours of training provided to assistance dogs in training per month. For an affordable monthly subscription fee we cover all aspects of assistance dog training and assessments throughout the dogs training and working life. Training is available in both face to face and virtual formats. This program is open to 2 to 25 year olds who meet our care, health and support needs based (not diagnosis centred) criteria.
Our specialist team dog (therapy dog) program is open to professionals and organisations who support young people with additional and alternative needs or disabilities such as schools, charities, occupational, speech & physiotherapists, councillors and social workers. The comprehensive program provides all aspects of training and assessment to equip the specialist team dog handler to provide a specialist canine assisted activity program to support their clients.
We offer a 4 week intensive training program which is open to all dog owners, learning all the basics every dog owner should know and teaching you how to teach your dog the main behaviours you need them to be able to do as a pet dog owner, as well as how to socialise and build your dogs confidence to help your dog become a confident and emotionally stable pup.
Everyone who wishes to access any of our services for disabled children & young people or therapy dog program must first achieve their pawsitive sad pet award.
