Service dogs

Service dogs offer an independent life to people with mobility disabilities.


Whether it is opening a door, switching on the lights, pulling the wheel chair or encouraging a child undergoing rehabilitation the service dog can be the helper. 

More than just a helping hand
The practical tasks performed by the service dog are the obvious advantages , but the invisible gain - the creation of a close bond between handler and dog is equally important. The service dog contributes with joy, comfort and friendship, stimulates our sense of responsibility and encourages physical activity and thus becomes a natural link to the surrounding world.


Man's best friend and helper
The partnership between man and dog has long and proud traditions. Today dogs all over the world are trained to function as a replacement for defects of the human body. Dogs work as guide dogs for the blind, hearing dogs that alert deaf people or people with reduced hearing, and since the 1970s in the USA and from the 1990'ies i Denmark as service dogs.


STH train service dogs to help people who due to illness or accidents suffers from physical disabilities, such as partial paralyses, sclerosis, polio, progressive muscular dystrophy, spasticity or who has been amputated.
STH donates the service dogs to the successful applicants free of charge.
