Dogs with Wings:
Helping our client's dreams take flight.

In June 2017, Dogs with Wings launched our Ditch-the-List Campaign. Due to high demand, our on-line Client applications were closed to the public as we work to fill the needs of our current waiting list. Our goal is to raise $1.5 million to breed, raise, train and match 50 teams (dogs with Clients) by June 30, 2018.


Join us for our 2018 Annual Gala Dinner and Auction - Boots, Buckles & Bones; A Hound’s Hoedown


Welcome to Dogs with Wings

Our goal is simple: to change lives for the better.

We are a leader in the international community of assistance dog training schools. Our mission is to foster integration and independence for Albertans with disabilities by providing them with highly trained assistance dogs and aftercare. Persons with disabilities are important members of society who need our assistance.

DWW Spirit


Dogs with Wings is responsive to our community, adding programs and services that our clients need. Beginning in 1996, we offered guide dogs for the blind and visually impaired. In 2003, we added service dogs in response to client demand. In 2007, we added our Autism Service Dog Program, then 1 of only 2 in Canada. Recently, we have placed a variety of facility and companion dogs to clients in all regions of Alberta.

Public Access.1


We are also tied to our community via our volunteers who do so much for us. Since 1996, we have had literally hundreds of people assisting us by fostering our dogs in training. Today, Dogs with Wings operates puppy programs in Edmonton, Calgary, and Grande Prairie, with almost 300 active volunteers.

Grad Dogs in Gazebo


Through our membership with the Assistance Dogs International, The International Guide Dog Federation, and the Canadian Association of Guide Assistance Dogs Schools, we are taking an active part in the development of our industry, nationally and around the world.
