About Canine Partners
At Canine Partners, our mission is to assist people with disabilities to enjoy a greater independence and a better quality of life and, where possible, to help them into education and employment, through the provision of specially trained dogs for the disabled, whose well-being is a key consideration.
Excellence - Respect - Passion - Teamwork - the Personal Touch - Innovation
More than 1.2 million people in the UK use a wheelchair, and a significant number of those would benefit from a canine partner. We tailor make our dogs to each applicant’s individual needs, training them to help with everyday tasks such as opening and shutting doors, unloading the washing machine, picking up dropped items, pressing buttons and switches and getting help in an emergency. We train dogs for the disabled with even the most complex conditions including members of HM Armed Forces.
These life transforming dogs also provide practical, physiological, psychological and social benefits including increased independence and confidence as well as increased motivation and self-esteem. A canine partner also brings companionship, a sense of security and increases social interaction.
