Assistance Dogs UK is a coalition of assistance dog organisations that have been accredited by Assistance Dogs International (ADI) and/or The International Guide Dog Federation (IGDF). All ADUK members are non-profit organisations that work to the highest standards of guide dog and assistance dog training and welfare.
Over 7000 people rely on a highly trained assistance dog from one of ADUK’s members, enjoying the additional emotional benefits and greater independence that such dogs bring.
Assistance dogs are trained to support people with disabilities and medical conditions in a variety of ways. From guide dogs to medical alert dogs, from autism dogs to hearing dogs, assistance dogs change, and often save, the lives of their owners and their families.
Whether you are a prospective or current assistance dog owner or a service provider, you will find the answers to all your questions about assistance dogs on this website.
