Rollstuhlassistenz

These assistance dogs help wheelchair users by coping with many daily tasks like picking things up off the ground or pressing switches or buttons. Sometimes they pull the wheelchair and help them get on and off. They open the doors for the wheelchair user in both a literal and figurative sense: their sphere of activity, security and participation in day to day life is dramatically improved.

Here you can see how assistance dogs combine practical help with therapeutic support. What is particularly touching is also how the boy bravely approaches an inattentive dog owner and reminds them of the important rules when dealing with an assistance dog: when the assistance dog is working, other dogs should absolutely be kept away, so it will not become distracted.

“I couldn’t speak, so he learnt to communicate with signs. If I touched my head I wanted my hat; If I touched my face, my razor. He learnt hundreds of these signs. One day in this very silent world we lived in, a sound came out of me. Endal was so excited, it was like he had an electric shock. Someone had told me that I would never speak again, but my assistance dog Endal awakened the voice in me again.” Able Magazine
