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 & their parents/ carers
  • 18- 26 year old disabled young people without parent/carer support
  • Disabled parents of disabled children under 26 living within their same household. 
in training their dog to become a fully trained assistance dog, trained to meet the disabled persons exact needs.


Before being accepted onto the program, all provisional members get a 1 month trial period for with access to our mini tester virtual learning program. 

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.  Being eligible doesn't guarantee you'll be offered a place on our program due to limited space.
