Watch them learn skills. Reward them with treats.

The secret to training puppies is to make it fun. Puppy Champions can send treats to puppies as a reward for a job well done, or just make them feel loved for their hard work. Celebrate the good times and send encouragement with Good Dog Tips.

How you are making a difference

We crunched the numbers, and discovered that each and every dog is 100% cute. But seriously, a recent survey showed how Assistance Dogs improve every single client’s quality of life. So we work hard to change the world for more Australians around the country. This is our success rate.
