Positive Response Assistance Dogs (PRAD) is our new organisation and Dee Scott is an accredited public access tester under the Guide Hearing and Assistance Dog Act 2009 (GHAD). Dee has been training and accrediting owners and their dogs with disabilities since 2015.
There are NO joining fees and you do not have to belong to any other organisation.
If you are with another organisation currently that are not accredited under GHAD 2009, you may stay with them if they are offering you other types of support however your training will come under the auspice of Positive Response Assistance Dogs. (PRAD) This means we are your trainers and your dog must, once certified, wear our jacket and continue training with us.
What we do
We assist those who are wanting to certify their own dog as an assistance dog to help with psychiatric disabilities including:
- Anxiety & Depression
- bipolar disorder
- Disassociative Disorders
We also work with people who have mobility issues along with any of the above.
For a full overview of our processes and training requirements please read our Guidelines for Assistance Dog Eligibility.
