Support Dogs is a registered national charity dedicated to increasing independence and quality of life for people with various medical conditions. We provide, train and support specialist assistance dogs to achieve this and specialise in three specific programmes -
Autism assistance dogs for children with autism. The dogs are trained to provide safety for the child and reduce stress in social environments.
Seizure alert dogs for people with epilepsy. The dogs are trained to provide a 100% reliable, up to 50 minute warning, prior to the onset of an epileptic seizure. Enabling the client to find a place of safety and be in control of their seizure, reducing injuries that are sustained as a result of the seizure and allowing a much more independent life.
Disability assistance dogs for people with physical disabilities. We train the client's own pet dog to perform specific tasks which are specifically tailored to their individual needs, providing them with greater independence and safety.
