The death of an assistance dog that has kept you safe and in many ways saved your life can bring up feelings that are difficult to explain. Most people cannot fully understand what you are going through.

We Support People Who Have? – Guide Dogs for the Blind, Hearing Dogs, Diabetic Alert Dogs, Seizure Alert Dogs, PTSD Dogs, Wheelchair Assistance Dogs, Dogs to help children with Autism

Understanding – Getting an assistance dog can give you confidence, independence and companionship. It can also be challenging and present owners with a lot of emotional responses. It can be especially hard when the dog you’ve relied on for several years retires – or is withdrawn from service due to illness or death.

Feelings – You might experience feelings of grief, failure and guilt when your dog retires. You may enter a stage of anticipatory grief when you notice the dog you have formed an incredible bond with is getting older – and you know the inevitable time of saying goodbye is creeping closer. It can be challenging if you can no longer keep your dog when it retires or when you are partnered with a new dog.
