Sponsor an Assistance Dog Team

Thank you for taking the time to consider supporting one of our Assistance Dog teams on their journey towards recovery.

Your donation will go towards reducing the cost of training for one of our participants and his dog. Unlike many other organisations our “handler” is the person that dog will be with forever. This is because we have found that being involved in the training from day one not only builds trust and companionship between the dog & handler but is also an integral part of this journey. Each one of our dog teams goes through 12-18 months of training while working closely with one of our behavioural therapists that includes:

  • Advanced Obedience Training
  • Environmental Exposure Training
  • Targeted Skill Training

$1,500 – FULL SUPPORT PACKAGE

This package supports 40 weeks of targeted training, across multiple environments and social settings, with one of our behavioural therapists. During this time each dog learns advanced social behavioural skills and targeted behaviours to aid their individual handler. This training covers everything required for a dog to pass it’s Public Access Test and become a fully qualified Assistance Dog

  • Covers all costs associated with certifying and testing an individual dog once it has passed its training modules.
  • Covers costs of all equipment and expenses associated with the training of an individual dog team (the dog and handler).

The Full Support Package includes:

  • A welcome pack
  • Your logo on the training vest of the dog you are sponsoring
  • A photo of your sponsored dog team
  • An invitation to attend a training activity
  • Special event invitations
  • Dog team to visit your work/ organisation for a Q&A
  • Social media recognition
  • An invitation to your sponsor dog’s graduation ceremony
  • At least four written letters updating you on your sponsor dog’s progress
