 THE PARENTS OF OUR PUPPIES ARE THERAPY AND ASSISTANCE DOGS

After several years of carrying out dog-assisted interventions and training therapy and assistance dogs, we have come to the conclusion that the best way to ensure that a dog is suitable for doing this work is to have control over the selection and breeding process. This is why we breed the very dogs we use for therapy and interventions, and train them to become assistance dogs and canine therapists. This way, in each litter, we reinforce optimum qualities to turn the puppies into exceptional dogs, capable of doing this work.

OUR AUSTRALIAN COBBERDOGS IN ACTION

THE THERAPY DOG

A therapy dog performs sessions in centres and hospitals, or individually with a dog-assisted intervention technician. During the sessions, the individual's specific capacities are worked on with the dog's participation, in order to energize the exercises and encourage motivation. Because of its appealing appearance, the Australian Cobberdog is very well-received by all users and, since it is hypoallergenic and doesn't lose hair, it is also accepted in most centres and hospitals.

THE ASSISTANCE DOG

There are 5 types of assistance dogs: guide dogs, service dogs (for people with physical difficulties), hearing dogs (for people with auditory impairment), alert and response dogs (to respond to epileptic attacks and drops in blood sugar) and dogs for children with autism. The Australian Cobberdog is a wonderful assistence dog, since it learns the demanding training programme that assistance dogs must go through very quickly.

THE CANINE THERAPIST

A canine therapist is a dog that combines the qualities of a therapy dog with those of an assistance dog. These are dogs that live with families to facilitate daily tasks, in addition to participating in the sessions carried out by the different professionals who treat the person (physiotherapists, psychologists, pedagogues, etc.), in order to motivate the user to carry out the therapy. Considering that they are excellent therapy and assistance dogs, Australian Cobberdogs are the perfect canine therapists.

OFFICAL COLLABORATORS WITH LA CAIXA FOUNDATION AND FEDER

At DOGKING, we are undertaking an initiative of solidarity with the La Caixa Foundation and the Spanish Federation of Rare Diseases (FEDER). Thanks to this initiative, families with children affected by highly discapacitating syndromes can learn about the many benefits of having a therapy and assistance dog in their homes.
