Our Partnership with Dogs for Autism

DfA Feb 2021 5 27Canine Life Co. is dedicated to helping improve the health of our wonderful and beautiful dogs, we also recognise how our canine friends can be such a significant help to our own human health. At the very basic level bringing us all better emotional health – through the joy of our loving relationships and physical health benefits through our shared exercise and all the goodness that brings us.

For over two hundred years we have also developed our understanding of how our dogs can be wonderful and unique providers of special care, assistance, and healing when we live with various health conditions and challenges. Very close to our hearts is the human challenge of Autism, a condition that affects how we communicate and interact with the world. With over 1 in every hundred people being on the autism spectrum, many of us have friends, relatives and even close family living with these challenges. The challenges are not just for the autistic person but are also for their loved ones especially parents and siblings, where incredible pressure, stress and anxiety can completely devastate a normal family home.

A wonderful and often miraculous aid in this situation can be an Autism Assistance Dog, first developed in the 1990’s but now an accepted and proven way to help mitigate any negative effects of autism through trained interventions and unconditional friendship. We are proud to support and partner with Dogs for Autism, a leading UK charity at the forefront of training, supplying and improving the use of dogs for assistance with Autism.

For ourselves, we feel that there is no better way than the natural human-dog relationship to help support autistic people and their families.

Sadly, for each of the dogs they can currently provide, the charity receives hundreds of enquiries for their help. We hope you will join us in providing support of both income and awareness of this great charity and help them reach more people who will benefit from Dogs For Autism.

Thank You
The Canine Life Directors & Team
