Dog Selection

Infinity Dogs CIC does not directly provide Assistance Dogs, but instead offers support to handlers in training their own Assistance Dogs. We are open to assisting individuals who own most breeds of dogs, with the exception of breeds that are considered illegal in the UK, such as the Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, Fila Brazillinaro, and XL Bully.

Additionally, we do not support the use of any bull breeds in our Assistance Dog program. This decision is not based on the belief that these breeds pose a higher risk to the public, but rather to avoid the possibility of support being abruptly withdrawn by the government or any future government.

Furthermore, we do not recommend the use of brachycephalic (brachy) breeds due to serious concerns regarding their health issues. It is crucial for Assistance Dogs to have the ability to breathe properly, and normalizing certain physical features of brachy breeds may not be in their best interest. We want to ensure the well-being of the dogs and prevent potential negative perceptions from the public.
