Assistance Dogs increase confidence & resilience, and decrease social isolation & reliance on friends and family members - as well as provide help with daily tasks that most of us take for granted. Here's a short video made by client Ruth Spurr at one of our training weekends - in it, our clients tell you what Dog A.I.D. means to them. Your generosity, and our wonderful team of voluntary trainers, enables us to do this … please help us to do more for people with disabilities throughout the UK …
