International Assistance Dog Week

This week (IADW) was created to recognize all the devoted, hardworking assistance dogs helping individuals mitigate their disability related limitations.

During International Assistance Dog Week, we recognize and honor the hardworking assistance dogs.

We raise awareness and educate the public about how these specially trained animals are aiding so many people in our communities. We honor the puppy raisers and trainers of assistance dogs and recognize heroic deeds performed by assistance dogs in our communities.

The celebration takes place each year, starting on the first Sunday of August. 

The goals of IADW are to:

  • Recognize and honor assistance dogs
  • Raise awareness and educate the public about assistance dogs
  • Honor puppy raisers and trainers
  • Recognize heroic deeds performed by assistance dogs in our communities
