We bring people and dogs together to help make life possible

At Dogs for Good, we train dogs to help people affected by disability, dementia, autism, and other conditions and mental-health challenges — to live happier, healthier, more independent lives. These are dogs that open doors, that connect people, that bring families together. Dogs that help make everyday life possible in so many ways. Thousands of people enquire about our services every year. With your support, we can reach more of them through our carefully matched partnerships, family workshops and community initiatives.
