Rehome one of our dogs

Rehomed Canine Partners dog Ayla

Only a small number of dogs we train each year fail to complete their training to become a canine partner.

Occasionally we re-home a small number of dogs that are withdrawn from our specialist training programme because we find that some dogs are just better suited as companions than assistance dogs.

When applying to re-home one of our dogs you need to appreciate that they have been removed from the training programme for a variety of reasons which may include training, behavioural or health reasons and further inputs from the new owners may be required when the dog goes to its new home.

You need:

  • to be assessed and approved as suitable for the dog’s temperament and long-term care
  • dog handling experience if possible, but not essential
  • to live within a 50-mile radius of either our Southern Centre or Midlands Centre

Please note that the 50-mile radius is to ensure that our rehomed dogs are within easy reach so that we can offer any support required once rehomed. As a charity, it is not cost or time effective to travel any longer of a distance to provide this support.
