The Dogs for Good charity will be with us on Saturday 6th April with a range of activities, free talks, film and lots of information about assistance dogs and the work of the charity. You will also be able to meet some of the dogs in training.
Dogs for Good is an innovative charity, exploring ways dogs can help people overcome specific challenges and enrich and improve lives and communities. Their assistance dogs support adults and children with a range of disabilities and also children with autism. They train activity and therapy dogs to work with specialist handlers in communities and schools. Their Family Dog team also gives specialist advice and support to help people get the most out of their relationship with their pet dog. The charity believes dogs are good for us and we continue to explore new ways dogs can help people in the future.
Did you know that assistance dogs can help to empty a washing machine, help a disabled child or adult to dress or undress, or pick up dropped items? Through practical assistance, a dog can offer freedom and independence to people who face a lifetime of challenges.
The charity will be in the Green Room over the day with lots of information. This is a free event with fun activities to raise money for Dogs for Good.
