About Us

The program has been running successfully in the UK and the Netherlands for the past two years. The special chemistry shown between a child and a dog through Assistance Dogs Australia’s work providing Assistance Dogs for families with a child with autism, has led us to realise that whilst for some children there will be a clear need for a fully trained assistance dog, a well-trained family pet dog can also have a massively beneficial impact. Workshops Our workshops cover the important pros and cons to be considered when thinking of applying for a dog to help your child and your family. The workshops are designed to provide parents with the information and long-term support for sourcing, choosing, handling and training a dog specifically to benefit a child with autism and the family as a whole.
