Welcome to the ADAA

Standardising Assistance Dogs

The Assistance Dog Assessment Association (ADAA), offers people living with disabilities the opportunity to have their assistance dog independently assessed. 

We appreciate that being an owner trained partnership or Non ADUK team can make access to services difficult. We are a non-profit organisation created to bridge this gap through our comprehensive public access assessment.


Our commitment is rooted in the belief that everyone, regardless of how their assistance dog has been trained, deserves access to support and validation. Our mission is to foster inclusivity within the assistance dog sector and provide assistance to all who need it.


We also provide information for service providers and the public. Our team has more than 30 years experience within the assistance dog sector, both within Assistance Dogs UK (ADUK) and non ADUK/owner trained organisations.

Our Mission.

Our mission is to include those people with disabilities that are currently falling outside of the current ADUK Charities' criteria, or who are simply unable to access an ADUK Charity.

We provide the opportunity to have assistance dog partnerships assessed independently, giving peace of mind and support to everyone who needs it.
