Dogs For Good

We explore ways that dogs can help people to overcome specific challenges

Story

On the 27/28th May I will be participating in the 100KM challenge of endurance walking 24 hours from London to Brighton all through the night and in one go. This it the same as 2 1/2 marathons!

I have chosen to support the great work of Dogs for Good who give independence to people with physical disabilities as well as those with dementia, anxiety and autism by interacting with dogs. Dogs for Good provides three services – Assistance Dog: training assistance dogs to support adults and children with physical disabilities and children with autism; Family Dog: providing advice and support to people on how their pet dog can benefit their whole family; Community Dog:  training activity and therapy dogs and their specialist handlers to work in communities and schools.

Below is a recent case study:

(https://www.dogsforgood.org/media-centre/press-office/success-stories/toby-sox/)

Toby has autism, at the age of eight he talked about ending his life. His partnership with his assistance dog Sox, gave him a reason to live. “It’s like our hearts are connected,” says Toby. I’m fundraising for Dogs for Good because I want to help more people like Toby to have the benefit of a life-transforming partnership with a dog. Dogs for Good trains dogs to give greater independence and opportunities for disabled people, children with autism and people with dementia. Thank you, your support will help Dogs for Good change more lives
