    Can you pass this online to someone with more knowledge about this?

    Hi @Oscarej11

    welcome to  Community ?

    I’m not to sure if you already know or have looked into this however there are a number of support dog charities that can help dogs for the disabled for example or  canine partners both train the dogs for you there are long waiting lists and it takes time there is also charitiy called dog aid who work a little differently they help you train your own pet dog be become an assistance dog.

    any questions just ask

    hope this helps
    let us know how you get on

    Hi @Oscarej11, you can find the eight member organisations of Assistance Dogs UK on this page: they should be able to give you more information and potentially help you begin the process!
