Information for Potential Clients

Dog A.I.D. Announcement.

17th March 2020

In light of recent Government and WHO guidelines regarding Coronavirus, we will be suspending all training until the end of June when we will review the situation. This will include all assessments and re - assessments and is effective immediately. At this stage, it is highly unlikely our two Workshops will take place but we are awaiting confirmation of this.

The office will be closed and manned remotely by the staff working from home. For urgent issues, emails to and messages on the answerphone will be answered periodically.

Dog A.I.D. Trustees.

We help those over fifteen who have a physical disability which impairs their movement and their ability to perform tasks such as picking up dropped objects, opening and shutting doors, finding articles which have been mislaid, putting washing in the machine, taking it out, placing articles where required, fetching help and many other tasks.

The dogs also simply with their presence give reassurance, confidence and independence to their owners. Please note, Dog A.I.D. does not train dogs to assist with mental impairment, autism or seizure alert for those with epilepsy. Nor do we accept clients with hearing impairment unless they have another significant physical disability.

Please have a look at the eligibility criteria document and fill in the form at the bottom of this page.


We have currently suspended all training.



To be considered for training with Dog A.I.D. you need to live no more than 30 minutes travel of the trainer's location. This helps to keep costs to a minimum.

If you do wish to be considered, you must first complete the form. One of our team at the Dog A.I.D. office will email you to let you know when we have received your application form. 

There are several steps in the application process. When you have completed all the stages, including an initial assessment visit from one of our trainers, we will let you know if you have been successful.

If you are successful, you will receive a welcome pack and can start your training journey with one of our Dog A.I.D. trainers.

We are constantly recruiting new trainers to help us meet demand for our services. New trainers are being added to our list at every opportunity. If you know a trainer who might like to join us, please ask them to get in touch.
