Are you a resident of NSW?
The NSW Ministry for Health and mindDog are looking for 200 new handler/dog teams as part of the NSW mindDog Expansion Project.
If you take part in this project, your training costs will be subsidised.
If you live in a rural or remote area and a mindDog trainer is not available, long distance training by video and Zoom will be provided free of charge.
The Project also requires that you take part in a Living in the Community study by completing a series of simple questions that will remain confidential.
If you are interested in joining the Project please apply now.
Funded by the NSW Ministry of Health
mindDog assists mental health sufferers to procure, train and certify psychiatric assistance dogs. These dogs assist people with mental health disorders whose lives are often severely compromised by anxiety and fear. With their mindDog they are able to travel on public transport, access public places and take part in social activities which have been closed off to them.
mindDog endorses force free training only.
mindDog is proud to accredit a wide range of breeds of psychiatric assistance dogs.
