How Mobility Dogs transform lives

Practical help, emotional support

Mobility Dogs are trained to help people living with a disability with everyday tasks. They also provide companionship, emotional support and a connection to the community.

Each dog is trained to:

  • Retrieve and carry items – such as help load and unload the washing.
  • Deliver items to a person
  • Open and close doors and drawers
  • Press buttons for elevators and pedestrian crossings
  • Help with payments in shops
  • Assist with daily activities such as dressing and undressing
  • Turn lights on and off

Specialised Skills

In addition, each dog can be trained to suit the unique requirements of their human partner.

Our dogs can:

  • Put their own food bowls in the sink
  • Help their human partner turn over in bed
  • Tidy away their toys
  • Help strip the bed

Some of our mobility dogs look after other members of the family as well – they’ve been known to help with the laundry and more!!
