Assistance Dog Training & DogAID
Scott is a registered Instructor and assessor with DogAID (Assistance in Disability)
DogAID is a registered charity that helps people with physical disabilities train their own dogs. The training consists of of a three tiered system. Level One Companion Level is basic obedience and some useful task training. For some people, this is all they require. Level Two is the Advanced Companion Level, and for the dogs with all round sociability, this is where dogs aquire further skills and continue the training in the useful tasks that are useful to their owner. At Level 3 Assistance Dog Level, owners and their dogs are assessed and awarded a certificate issued from the office to show their achievements. Once a dog has passed it's Level 3, it is recognised by ADUK as a fully qualified Disability Assistance Dog and as such, is granted full public access.
All training with DogAID is free, however we do ask for a donation towards travel expenses and venue hire. The agreement for this financial commitment is made prior to the commencement of training and payments are made to the Treasurer so that it goes through the accounts as required by charity law.
If you are physically disabled and would like an informal discussion about your dog's suitability and criteria for becoming a DogAID client, please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
