Dogs for Good trains assistance dogs for adults with physical disabilities. Every dog is specially trained to help with practical tasks that many people with disabilities find difficult or impossible to do, such as:
- Opening and closing doors
- Helping with dressing and undressing
- Retrieving items such as mobile telephones or dropped articles like keys or a bag
- Loading and emptying the washing machine
- Pressing a pedestrian crossing button
- Reaching up to shop-counters with items such as a wallet
A registered assistance dog provides an extension of the person’s abilities, and is allowed by law to accompany their partner into public places such as shops, restaurants and also to travel on public transport.
