About The Animal Charity Empower Assistance Dogs
Empower Assistance Dogs are a animal charity that train very special dogs. These dogs then help to enhance the quality of life of physically or mentally challenged persons. They do this while still maintaining as much independence for the handler as possible. As a result, the dog will be a permanent working companion for the disabled handler. They will assist with a myriad of task work but whilst still having the handler work and interact as much as physically or mentally possible.
About The Training
Assistance dogs are trained to turn lights on and off, open and close doors, pick up and or retrieve dropped or wanted items. They also indicate when their handler needs assistance. They do this by either alerting a carer or by pushing a medical alarm etc. But most importantly the team at Empower work closely with both the child and the dog. This ensures each dog is trained to the individual handler’s needs. Furthermore this makes their bond very strong and some what special.
The Aussie Pooch Mobile Contribution
Aussie Pooch Mobile has been continuously fundraising through the Variety Children’s Charity for these amazing assistance dogs and incredible children since 2007. It is wonderful to be apart of such a worthy animal charity. “The smile on both the dog and child’s face when they are united as one after the completion of their training is something you never forget” says Chris.
