  • We are a charity that provide, train and support specialist assistance dog partnerships to increase the independence and quality of life for those affected by autism, epilepsy and physical disability

    We specialise in three specific programmes:

    Autism assistance dogs for children aged three to ten years with autism. The dogs are trained to provide safety for the child and reduce stress in social environments. You can read more about this programme here

    Seizure alert dogs for people with epilepsy. The dogs are trained to provide a 100% reliable, 10-55 minute warning prior to the onset of an epileptic seizure, which enables them to get to a place of their choosing and take control of the situation. You can read more about this programme here

    Disability assistance dogs for people with physical disabilities. The client’s own pet dog is trained to perform tasks which are specifically tailored to their individual needs; providing them with greater independence and safety. You can read more about this programme here
    Established in 1992 Support Dogs is a registered charity and provides all it services entirely free of charge to those in need of them. However the charity relies solely on voluntary donations and receives no government funding.

    Support Dogs are one of the founder members of Assistance Dogs UK.

    ADUK provides a kite-mark of excellence in assistance dog training. All ADUK dogs adhere to the highest training and welfare standards as set out by Assistance Dogs International and the International Guide Dogs Federation.
