News from Dogs for Good - www.dogsforgood.org

 

In partnership with The National Autistic Society and the University of Lincoln, Dogs for Good completed a three year research project investigating why dogs affect children with autism and the impact on the family as a whole. The research found that owning a pet dog reduced stress in parents of children with autism.

 

Family Dog workshop places available

 

Our workshops are designed to provide parents of children with autism with the advice and long-term support needed for choosing and training a dog to benefit the whole family.

 

Workshops are held around the country and use a combination of practical demonstrations with our workshop dogs, discussions, hands on learning and course handouts.
