Specially Trained Dogs Caring For You

We recognise that everyone’s situation is unique and therefore pride ourselves in tailoring our programs to best match the individual needs of each person.

Therapy Animals Australia is a Melbourne based charitable organisation that specialises in training assistance dogs and therapy dogs throughout Victoria. Our dogs are trained to provide emotional support, companionship and relief from symptoms related to mental illness and some physical disabilities. Our assistance dogs receive further specialised training to learn specific tasks that support an individual person with a diagnosed condition.

  • We also offer general dog training in Melbourne for groups and individuals.

If you’re interested in any of our services, or wish to discuss how we might be able to assist you, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
