mindDog

www.minddog.org.au

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. A mindDog is a psychiatric assistance dog.  An assistance dog (also known as a service dog) is covered by the Commonwealth Disability Discrimination Act 1992.  An assistance dog is trained to assist their handler in public and is guaranteed access to all public places including shopping centres, hospitals, public transport and restaurants.  According to this Act, an assistance dog is trained to alleviate the effect of a disability and must meet standards of hygiene and behaviour.
