Assistance Dog Education

At Pat Dogs Australia, we participate in hosting workshops and presentations to enhance staff well-being and raise awareness about assistance dogs within the community.

Our presentations cover the legal obligations of both handlers and businesses in relation to assistance dogs.

We can tailor presentations to educate your staff on

  • How to recognise a genuine assistance dog,
  • Understanding their Public Access Rights, and
  • Understanding your rights and obligations as a business.

We can deliver these in person with one of our accredited assistance dogs or online via Zoom.

Most businesses that we visit report that after our visit, a higher level of job satisfaction among the staff, an appreciation for having the dogs attend, and higher retention rates.

Additionally, the funds raised through these activities support Pat Dogs Australia in assisting individuals with mental health issues and children with autism.
