Aims and objectives
Canine Partners is a registered charity that transforms the lives of people with physical disabilities by partnering them with assistance dogs. Their dogs bring greater independence and quality of life to their partners- offering security, companionship, and practical help with everyday household tasks. These life-changing dogs also provide psychological and social benefits, including increased independence, confidence, social interaction and self-esteem.
Canine Partners are carefully matched to the applicants'' needs and lifestyle, no matter how challenging. They are trained to help with everyday tasks- such as opening and closing doors, unloading the washing machine, picking up dropped items, pressing buttons and switches, and fetching help in an emergency. They can even help people to get undressed and remove a card from a cash machine.
