AUTISM DOG SERVICES SAFETY, COMPANIONSHIP, INDEPENDENCE
Autism Dog Services is a registered Canadian charitable organization making a difference by fostering the integration of individuals with autism by training, placing and supporting dogs that offer safety, companionship and independence.
Autism Dog Services primary program is to provide autism service dogs to people over three years of age with autism and related disorders. If someone has challenges which present in a similar manner to Autism we will evaluate the need to determine if a service dog would be a beneficial support.

Adoptions & Career Change Dogs

PUPPY RAISING & SITTING
RAISE A PUPPY
Volunteer Puppy Raisers provide long term care for our puppies in training. They are responsible for raising, socializing and providing basic training to puppies.
Volunteer puppy raisers are responsible for providing a safe home environment and caring for a puppy’s day to day needs and well-being. Volunteers must reside in Southwestern Ontario (Guelph, Kitchener/Waterloo, Cambridge, Hamilton, Niagara, Brantford, Western GTA and London and areas in this circle) and be able to travel to attend bi-weekly puppy classes. All food, equipment and veterinary care are provided.
Volunteer Puppy Sitters provide short term care for Autism Dog Services’ puppies and dogs in training.
Puppy sitters are responsible for providing a safe home environment and caring for puppies between eight weeks and 18 months of age and are responsible for their day to day needs and well-being. Puppy sitting is a good way to begin in our volunteer program if you are interested in raising a puppy but aren’t quite ready for the long term commitment involved. All food, equipment and veterinary care are provided.
Lukey joining our family has been life changing for us. Not having to worry so much about Ryan’s safety while out in public is amazing. We are doing things we haven’t tried in years."
Ryan's mom, Kristen
Alex has a compulsive tendency to touch things. It severely impaired his day to day life. Going short distances took a considerable amount of time because he had to touch everything! Now with Pepsi at his side, he walks confidently and with virtually no tapping! Pepsi also keeps Alex focused on the task at hand and prevents him from wandering away.”
