About Us

Dogs with Wings Assistance Dog Society (DWW) is committed to providing highly trained assistance dogs to Albertans since 1996. We are a leader in the international community of assistance dog training schools. Our mission is to foster integration and independence for Albertans with disabilities by providing them with highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support. It takes two years and a minimum of $40,000 to raise and train each dog. To date we have graduated over 160 teams - an assistance dog and their owner.

We provide five programs to support our community:

Autism Dogs are specially trained to provide safety, companionship and a calming influence on children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.

Guide Dogs can open up a whole new world of safety, security and independence, helping people with visual impairment to work, go to school and be an active member of their community.

Service Dogs help our clients increase their sense of independence and mobility on a daily basis. They assist a person with mobility, agility or balance challenges.

Facility Dogs work with teachers and social workers in classrooms for children with special needs. They can also work with victim services staff in agencies and courtrooms helping families affected by crime and tragedy.

Companion Dogs are for those who would benefit from having a well-trained service dog, but do not require public access.

Our goal is simple: to change lives for the better.
