ABHSC has a strict no pets policy

The only exception to this rule is if the animal is an Assistance Dog and meets the criteria as mentioned below.

Definition of Assistance Dog:

For the purpose of this policy, an Assistance Dog is one which has been specifically trained to assist disabled people and which has been qualified by one of the organisations registered as a member of Assistance Dogs (UK) or an equivalent organisation in another country.

Assistance dogs trained by members of Assistance Dogs (UK) or by an equivalent organisation in another country have formal identification and are permitted to accompany their owners at all times and in all places within the United Kingdom (unless there is a genuine health and safety risk).

On the grounds of Health and Safety responsibilities to its staff, students and visitors, the University reserves the right to refuse access for a dog that:

  • Is not qualified by one of the five membership organisations of Assistance Dogs (UK).
  • Dogs from other nations, which do not meet the full membership criteria of the established international assistance dog organisations – Assistance Dogs International, Assistance Dogs Europe, International Guide Dog Federation – or other such international bodies as may from time to time be recognised.

Assistance dogs:

  • are highly trained
  • will not wander freely around the premises
  • will sit or lie quietly on the floor next to its owner
  • are trained to go to the toilet on command and so are unlikely to foul in a public place
  • are instantly recognisable by the harness or identifying coat they wear

Members of Assistance Dogs (UK):

The following are registered members of Assistance Dogs (UK):

  • Guide Dogs for the Blind Association (GDBA)
  • Hearing Dogs for Deaf People
  • Support Dogs
  • Dogs

Types of Assistance Dogs:

Guide Dogs assist people who are blind or are visually impaired.

Hearing Dogs assist people who are deaf or are hearing impaired.

Support Dogs/Dogs for the Disabled: A Support Dog can be trained to do many other tasks, which their owner may find difficult or impossible; for example:

  • Opening and closing doors
  • Calling an ambulance
  • Picking up objects
  • Assisting with dressing and undressing.
  • Accompanying their owner whilst shopping etc.
  • Acting as a physical support
  • Raising the alarm
  • Operating control buttons
  • Switching lights on and off
  • Carrying items
  • Loading and unloading the washing machine

Support Dogs also train dogs for people with disabilities and Seizure Alert dogs for people with epilepsy. Seizure Alert Dogs are trained to behave differently when they detect a potential seizure, which may appear to be misbehaving.
