Welcome to Canine Partners

Canine Partners is a registered charity that transforms the lives of people with physical disabilities by partnering them with assistance dogs.

Our amazing dogs bring a greater independence and quality of life to their partners, offering security, companionship, and practical help with everyday household tasks. These life-changing dogs provide psychological and social benefits including increased independence, confidence, social interaction and self-esteem.

Meet Stuart and Mary

Stuart from Leicestershire has had Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for over 20 years. He was partnered with canine partner Mary in November 2018 and three years later, she is a cherished member of the family. Read Stuart’s story.


How do we train our dogs?

Our canine partners undertake a specialist two-year training programme, which begins from selection at seven to eight weeks old. They spend 12 to 14 months in puppy training with a volunteer, followed by four months’ advanced training at one of our centres. At all stages training is fun and reward-based.
