I’m looking for an assistance dog. How can I get a dog from Assistance Dogs Europe?
Assistance Dogs Europe does not provide or train dogs. It is an organisation made up of individual programs that train dogs. Click on European schools to locate a school that may be able to train a dog for you.

How long does it take to train an assistance dog?
Dogs won’t be placed before they are about 18 months in age. There is no exact set time for training an assistance dog once they have completed their early socialization, but assistance dog programs will have very clear training plans for every dog. In general, adult dogs will undergo specific training (obedience, task work etcetera) for a period of around 6 months before they are matched with their future owner.
