I am proud to be a Dog A.I.D voluntary trainer
Dog A.I.D. (Assistance in Disability) was established in 1992 to assist people with physical disabilities, improving their quality of life by helping them train their own pet dogs to provide assistance with day-to-day tasks and in some circumstances providing life-saving interventions.
In 1996, the Dog A.I.D. Scheme was launched nationally at Crufts and today benefits from a team of over 100 Trainers and Assessors working on a voluntary basis across the U.K. from its base in Shrewsbury, Shropshire.
As at July 2019 there are currently 108 fully qualified Dog A.I.D. dogs throughout the country, with 123 more in training with 113 voluntary Dog A.I.D. Trainers. Training takes up to two years with both dog and owner receiving specialist education from our network of trainers and attain fully qualified Assistance Dog status through three distinct stages.
