Dogs are trained to assist with a range of practical tasks such as:
• Opening and closing doors and cupboards
• Retrieving a variety of items
• helping you to get undressed
• pressing buttons and switches
• raising the alarm in an emergency
• unloading washing machines and tumble driers
• much more, depending on your individual needs
Canine partners provide practical day to day assistance with tasks that may be difficult, painful or impossible to perform. They also provide that special companionship, unconditional love and affection which is so unique to dogs.
If you are interested in enquiring about a Canine Partner then please get in touch, by email or by completing a short enquiry form on the website.
Canine Partners’ primary focus is to help adults with physical disabilities. This means that they do not provide assistance dogs to:
• People under the age of 18
• Those whose sole reason for applying relates to epilepsy, autism, dementia or mental health issues, and who do not have any physical disability
