WHAT IS ECO PAWS?
We’ve taken special care in selecting the ECO-FRIENDLY dog products you’ll find on our website & we hope you’ll like these products as much as we do.
Eco Paws was created with nutrition & the environment in mind. Our dogs are a part of our family & we aim to give them a long, healthy & happy life. We believe that it’s important to not only make sure our dogs are happy & healthy but to use products that help to keep our planet happy & healthy too. This way together, we can help to “Leave Positive Paw Prints on our Environment”.
We also believe it’s important to “Pay It Forward” somewhere, somehow & that’s why we will donate $1 from every Eco Paws product we sell, to help support Assistance Dogs Australia.Assistance Dogs Australia trains dogs in community settings to assist people with physical disabilities, to give people more confidence and to help them achieve a greater level of independence.
The Assistance Dogs are fully trained to international standards and ALWAYS provided to people with physical disabilities free of charge. Each Assistance Dog costs just over $26,000, which covers the two-year training period and lifetime support.
Assistance Dogs make a dramatic difference in the quality of life for individuals with physical disabilities.
Not only do they assist them physically, but these special dogs also relieve loneliness and social isolation, helping their owners integrate more with their local communities.
This increase in independence allows people to get on with their lives, often attending college, getting employment or just mixing more.
Examples of tasks Assistance Dogs perform for people with physical disabilities
• Picking up dropped items
• Opening and closing doors
• Pressing the button at the traffic lights
• Alert barking if their team mate is in trouble
• Getting bottles of water out of the fridge
• Retrieving the phone
• Unloading the washing machine
• Pay the cashier at the shops
• Help their team mate access public
Please visit www.assistancedogs.org.au for more information. Assistance Dogs Australia are not government funded & rely on donations from the generosity of the public.
Welcome to Eco Paws accessories for dogs & thank you for your support.
