At Green Cart Farm we breed, sponsor and puppy train assist dogs for children with disabilities and autism.
Several of our own dogs are certified Therapy and Assist Dogs that work alongside Oesteoaths, and Therapists at The Children's Clinic for Cornwall. We volunteer at hospitals, assisted living homes and schools. We have bred 24 assistance dogs most have been placed with children and young adults since 2014.
We champion flat coat, golden and labrador retrievers and consider the retreiver class and the crosses the best temperment for children assist dogs. We are working with Bernese Mountain Dogs for mobility, wheel chair pulling and hoisting.
Our mission is to help children find their perfect four legged partner who will tranform thier lives by increasing independence and boosting confidence. We believe a good dog with empathy and a clear sense of human/dog pack heiarchy will do most assistance tasks naturally with basic trading.
If you are looking for an assist dog training Centre we recommend Bale's Buddies in Newton Abbot. If you are looking to train your own dog we can help you get started with one of our Assist Dog Taster days.
