Assistance Dogs UK

Assistance Dogs UK is a coalition of eight assistance dog charities. Over 7,000 disabled people in the UK rely on an assistance dog to help with practical tasks - offering emotional support and independence.

ADUK provides a kite-mark of excellence in assistance dog training. All ADUK dogs adhere to the highest training and welfare standards as set out by Assistance Dogs International and the International Guide Dogs Federation.
