Assistance Dog Training
in Reigate, Surrey

Owner Trained Assistance Dogs

There are many people in the UK that would benefit from a assistance dog to help them with everyday tasks and to improve their quality of life. However, due to long waiting lists with various assistance dog charities, this is often not possible within the time scale that people wish for. Owner training is the concept in which the owner trains their own assistance dog, with the help of a qualified trainer.


Training any dog, particularly an assistance dog, requires hard work, determination, consistency and most importantly, time. We are here to set you up to succeed! Owner trained assistance dogs have the added benefit of bonding with their handler from the get-go, which can help the process by building trust and a solid bond as a foundation.


Dogs will need be assessed for suitability, undertake obedience training, have effective socialisation and bespoke training to learn tasks that will benefit their handler. Becki will work with you from the very start of your owner trained assistance dog journey, and support you fully in your dog-handler partnership.


Tasks that we can help you to train your dog to do:


  • Opening and closing doors

  • Picking up objects including keys

  • Operating control buttons

  • Loading and unloading the washing machine

  • Deep Pressure therapy/grounding

  • Retrieving items


We cover Reigate RH2 and surrounding areas for this service. For more information on this service, please contact Becki directly for a no obligation telephone call.
