Watch Assistance Dogs Super Pups Graduate!

Come and see the Assistance Dogs Super Pups graduate with honours!
The cleverest canines in the land will take centre stage across three locations nationally— and get to wear mortar boards!

Graduations in three state capital cities this month will officially celebrate the union of newly qualified Super Pups with clients they have been meticulously and thoughtfully paired with, and the beginning of their new lives as Assistance Dogs.

This is an opportunity to celebrate not only the wonderful achievements of these Super Pups but also the special people who have dedicated their time, talent and love throughout their two-year journey to help them become fully qualified Assistance Dogs.
The graduating teams of dogs and owners will include Physical Disability, Autism, Educational Facility, Dementia and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Assistance Dogs. 
These dogs don’t just change lives, they give people their lives back!

Assistance Dogs Ambassador and client Tim McCallum will not only MC the event with the help of his Assistance Dog Roxy, but will entertain the audience and guests with a musical performance. But the stars of the show will undoubtedly be the dogs and their clients who will appear on stage with Tim to talk about their experiences. That’s the owners, not the dogs! 

Expect a joyous, emotional, life-affirming afternoon of laughter, music and perhaps a few tears... This event is free and open to the public
