Assistance Dogs

Service Dogs make dramatic differences’ in the quality of life for children with Autism and their families. Not only do My Canine Companion dogs assist them physically, but these special dogs also become the child’s best and in some cases, only, friend.

We are aware of the challenges faced by children with autism and we would like to make a positive contribution to help them and their families.

How can you help?

We are asking for your help in raising money to train two puppies and change two families’ lives.

Benefits of service dogs for children and their families living with autism

  • The dogs help increase safety levels and alleviates bolting behaviours
  • Acts as an anchor when tethered to the child
  • Provides independence as the child doesn’t have to hold the parents hand
  • Provides greater freedom to go out in public thanks to the calming effect of the dog
  • Helps with transitioning which leads to reduced stress levels and a more positive experience for all.
  • Acts as a constant companion, offering unconditional love and friendship to the child
