This is our first foray into the wonderful world of Google+!!

We breed, train and place our wonderful assistance dogs with severely disabled children and adults throughout the island of Ireland. We are based in Cork, Ireland.

We have developed a highly successful Stability Assistance Dog Programme and it is the only one we know of in Europe. It works by pairing a child who has severe difficulty walking with one of our very suitable Stability Assistance Dogs.

The timing of all of this is really critical because as the child needs to be paired with the dog before they are 12 years old, at the very latest. After this age they will be too heavy / not have enough muscle developed to be able to safely work with the dog.

We’ve seen dramatic improvement in our partners’ walking abilities with this programme and we are doing everything we can to expand it as much as we can.

Below is an example of one our Stability Assistance Dog Partnerships in action.
