Assistance Dogs…they are SO SO special….


As you all know, I am the volunteer photographer for Assistance Dogs Australia. And absolutely love it:)

Assistance Dogs Australia is a national charity which trains Labradors and Golden Retrievers to help people with disabilities, providing them with greater freedom and independence.

Last Thursday was our annual ‘Awareness Day,’ held in Sydney’s Martin Place.

We received much needed donations from the general public who loved meeting our ‘super puppies’ and having a pat!

The dogs showed us a selection of their ‘tricks’ including opening the washing machine door {yes really}, picking up a mobile phone and pulling off your socks!!

These dogs never cease to amaze me..they are so soft and gentle and just want to help….

If you’d like to help out by making a donation, becoming a puppy raiser or a puppy minder, visit Assistance Dogs Australia for more information…

Enjoy the pics 🙂

  1. Oh Christine – you have put the biggest smile on my face on a busy day! Those pups pose better than their two-legged companions: just love Mr ‘L- plated’ on his tummy! Do hope a fair amount of both money and awareness was raised. As you may vaguely remember I have helped ‘bring up’ three of such dogs . . . and it was a joyful process from 6-weeks to the ‘handing over’ ! Thank you and trust all’s well . . .
