Mobility service dog

A service dog for people with physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, amputees and more.

A person with a physical disability often depends on the immediate environment for performing both complex and simple tasks, the service dog is trained to perform dozens of different skills and thus meets his need for independence, prevents frustration and improves his quality of life.

The most common skills are opening and closing doors and drawers, turning lights on and off, bringing various objects and helping with clothing. In addition, the dog learns tasks tailored specifically to the needs and abilities of his owner, such as blanket covering or lifting an object that fell from the wheelchair.

Beyond the functional aspect, the service dog's owner enjoys additional benefits.

The service dog gives a sense of security, reduces the level of anxiety from emergencies and improves the owner's sense of control and sense of self-ability.

The service dog meets every person's basic need to love and be loved, which is a significant need especially for a person with disabilities who often suffers from deterrence or social isolation.

Moreover, in the social context, the service dog functions as a natural "ice breaker", contributing to social connections and as for children, the dog can even improve their social status.

Like any dog, the service dog is also seen as a life companion, who gives the owner joy in difficult times and a reason to get up in the morning. The sense of responsibility for the dog's well-being has a positive effect on the daily routine and the level of daily activity.
