Applications Open December 2023 to January 2024!

We are delighted to announce that our waiting list has reopened for enrolments on to our Residential Assistance Dog Programme! In this programme, we provide fully-trained Assistance Dogs for autistic children and adults, and educate the handler and their family with training on how to care for, work with, and handle the dog.

Each of our Autism Assistance Dogs is trained with a very special set of skills, providing emotional and practical assistance to mitigate the challenges their handlers face. The skills that our dogs are trained in are tailored to each handler's individual challenges and needs, and depend on what the handler hopes to achieve with the help of their Assistance Dog. For more information about the special skills our dogs can be trained to perform, please see our Special Skills page.

Information packs will be sent out during the time the waiting list reopens for applications (between Friday 29th December 2023 and Friday 19th January 2024). Any applications received after Friday 19th January will not be considered by our panel at this time.

Please send all enquiries for information packs via email to info@autismdogs.co.uk
