Assistance Dog Program

Our Pawsitive Squad assistance dog program is one of the most comprehensive programs currently available in the UK. We specialise in supporting young people aged 2 to 26 years old at the point of application and their parents/ carers in training their dog to become a fully trained assistance dog, trained to meet the young persons exact needs.

Before applying for the assistance dog program, all applicants must have first completed their pawsitive pets award which includes attending:

  • 2 webinars
  • 2 virtual workshops
  • self guided short theory course
  • written project & group zoom assessment

For more information on the pawsitive pets award please click here. 

Our eligibility criteria is all based on care, support and health needs rather than diagnosis, meaning that we are able to support a diverse range of clients with a variety of conditions including physical, psychiatric, developmental and learning disabilities, neurodiverse (eg ASD, ADHD) young people and young people with conditions which cause life threatening medical events. If a young person has an undiagnosed condition which is recognised as a disability by their doctor then they're eligible for training through our program if they meet the general eligibility criteria.
