  • Autism Life Dogs at The Royal Mews

     

    This week we were thrilled to be invited by The Royal Collection Trust to visit the Royal Mews with some of our special Autism Life Dogs.

    The Royal Collection has been committed to making their sites more accessible for individuals with autism and recently won an award from the National Autistic Society for their efforts.  We were invited to talk to them about how autism therapy support dogs help those on the spectrum access places like the palaces.

    We are excited to have been invited to Windsor Castle in February 2017 and our Autism Life Dog families have been invited to join us!  Once we have more information we will certainly let you know – so watch this space!
