Could a Companion Dog help you or a loved one? 

    Mobility Dogs are trained to forge unique partnerships catering to the specialised needs of their human. Companion Dogs go through the same rigorous training programme as a Mobility Dog and these incredible dogs have extraordinary, innate therapeutic abilities.

    Often the bond between a dog and its human can help overcome many emotional impacts of their human’s conditions. These dogs have been known to give a renewed sense of purpose, and can help build stronger relationships both within the family unit and in the community.

    Companion dogs can allow an individual to gain confidence in themselves that may have been lost, as well as providing friendship, love and emotional support.

    When we match a person with a dog we look for the following:

    • Do you or a loved one experience stress and anxiety?
    • Are you financially able to maintain the ongoing costs of a Companion Dog?
    • Able you to manage the daily exercise and day to day care of a dog?
    • Do you have a fully fenced garden?

    Each Companion Dog is trained to:

    • Provide emotional support
    • Relieve anxiety
    • Provide affection and comfort
    • Provide emotional support
    • Be calm and help regulate moods 

    Research has demonstrated that animal companionship may help stimulate the release of endorphins which can allow for a sense of wellbeing, and have an impact on stress and anxiety levels.
