All Assistance Dogs in Australia must comply with the definition and terms as outlined by Federal Law- The Disability Discrimination Act (1992)
All RAD Teams must follow our Terms of Membership, our Training and Behaviour Standards, and complete our training levels to commence work as a legally recognised Assistance Animal.
You can read more about this process here.
As an Association, we require all of our members to be maintain responsibility of, and a high standard of the health, behaviour, hygiene, training, and other standards of their RAD Dogs at all times.
If you ever encounter a RAD Team who you do not believe is upholding our standards, please reach out to us via email. We take expressions of concern very seriously and will ensure the team receives the support they need to get back on track.
