Dogs at work, people at our core
The dogs also help build stronger communities. The bond between mobility dogs and their human partner can enhance:
A more active life
When individuals have more confidence, the benefits can be wide reaching. The individual gains huge psychological benefits of greater purpose and connection, while the community benefits from his or her unique perspective, skills and talents.
With increased independence reliance on human carers can be reduced, and an improved connection with the community developed.
A Mobility Dog is often a catalyst for conversation, meeting new people and increasing their partner’s interaction with their community. This further increases confidence and self-esteem.
