We are the UK's first non profit organisation training Assistance Dogs and owners' pet dogs to improve quality of life for British ex-forces with "invisible injuries".
Whilst recognising the 'therapeutic' value of dog ownership, we help Veterans to train their own dog as Assistance Dogs for the specific needs of trauma related mental health conditions.*
We give Veterans the opportunity to meet in an informal and safe environment, amongst peers, and to access professional training and support.
Training is tailored to each individual based on their own specific needs.
We work with Veterans who want to increase their own quality of life through the benefits of dog ownership, whilst being supported by our organisation.
We provide modern professional training on an individual basis, workshops, seminars and residentials. Our Residentials take place in Devon, with other venues to be announced in due course.
Research continues regarding the training and benefits of Assistance Dogs for Veterans with invisible injuries and we have established partnerships with universities in both the UK and USA, sharing information and conducting practical research to gain further evidence of theories and practises.
Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions or feedback.
