Companion Dogs assist those who would benefit from having a well-trained service dog, but do not require public access. These dogs assist clients to enhance their quality of life and achieve greater independence by:

  • assisting with physical needs
  • enhancing social interactions
  • contributing to the well-being as they support their clients at home and at dog-friendly public places

Dogs with Wings will consider the application of future Companion Dog applicants if the following criteria are met:

    • Applicants must have a disability (assessed on a case-by-case basis).
    • Child applicants must be over the age of 3 years old at application and will not be considered for placement until they are over the age of 5 years old.
    • Is able to meet the emotional, physical, and financial needs of the Companion Dog and offer a stable home environment.
    • Demonstrates the need for a Companion Dog and that they are not able to train their own pet dog to assist the applicant.
    • DWW requires our Companion Dog to be the only dog in the home and we cannot assist clients who have a pet dog(s) (exceptions can be considered for other resident DWW dogs).
