Biography:

Support Dogs is a charity dedicated to improving the quality of life for children, adults and families living with physical disabilities, autism and epilepsy. We train and provide specialist assistance dogs to help people feel confident, safe and able to lead active and more independent lives. We specialise in three specific programmes:

Autism assistance dogs for children aged three to ten years with autism. The dogs are trained to provide safety for the child and reduce stress in social environments.

Seizure alert dogs for people with epilepsy. The dogs are trained to provide a 100% reliable, 10-55 minute warning prior to the onset of an epileptic seizure, which enables them to get to a place of their choosing and take control of the situation.

Disability assistance dogs for people with physical disabilities. The client’s own pet dog is trained to perform tasks which are specifically tailored to their individual needs; providing them with greater independence and safety.

Established in 1992 Support Dogs is a registered charity and provides all it services entirely free of charge to those in need of them.
