Buddy dogs for children
Our Buddy Dog service creates partnerships that enable children and young people with a vision impairment, and their families, to enjoy the benefits and friendship of a well-behaved dog. Having a buddy dog builds confidence, leading to better relationships with others, improved well-being, and a sense of fun and trust - both in themselves and in their dog.
The application process for a buddy dog includes three workshops, which are currently being run in:
- Leamington Spa
Two of these workshops are for parents only and one is for the family as a whole. You will, therefore, need to be able to travel to one of these locations to apply.
