About the Family Dog Service

Our Family Dog workshops provide parents of autistic children with the advice and long-term support needed for choosing and training a dog to benefit the whole family.

Our Workshops are ideal if you:

  • Are at the early stages of considering getting a dog to help your child with autism
  • Know that you want to get a dog and are looking for help choosing and handling a dog
  • Already have a pet dog but would like training ideas and support

We run a series of virtual workshops for families. Find out what our workshops cover.

Our specialist advice and support has brought life-changing benefits to whole families. Research has shown that the families we work with have lowered parental stress, they go out more together and autistic children have fewer meltdowns as a result of their pet dog.

Long-term support

Following the workshops, ongoing support is available to families that qualify including telephone support, online resources, and a private Facebook group.
