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.

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

Community

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.

Volunteers

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.

Our "O" litter is growing fast, these little pups are already 5 weeks old. We love watching these sweet puppies grow. Yesterday was a busy day for them as they started their very first training session! Training starts early for these little ones because they have an important job to do when they grow up!

A special thanks goes to their Whelping Home (Gil & Theresa), our Breeding Team (Erin, Caitlin, Heather, & Veronica), and our Training Team (Veronica, Taylor, Barbara, & Chihiro) for the roles they play in the lives of Miss Cali and our "O" litter. 🐶😊
