Giving freedom and independence to people with disabilities

Assistance Dogs Australia provides freedom and independence to people with physical disabilities.

We are a national charity that trains Labradors and Golden Retrievers to perform everyday tasks for people with disabilities.

Assistance Dogs increase independence, reduce reliance on human caregivers and act as a great ice-breaker helping overcome social isolation.

Assistance Dogs can pick up dropped items, open and close doors and cupboards, press the pedestrian button at the lights, pay the cashier at the shops, get the phone, unload the washing machine and alert bark if their owner is in trouble.
