International cooperation

Since its inception, Pomocné tlapky o.p.s.® has cooperated with foreign organizations that have rich and many years of experience in our field, such as ADI, IAADP or Delta Society. Thanks to their willingness, we managed to start in the right direction and start from the first moment in accordance with internationally recognized rules.

After initial cooperation with Assistance Dogs International since 2002, we subsequently joined its newly established European section ASSISTANCE DOGS EUROPE.

Since 2004, Pomocné tlapky® has been a full member of ADE, an international non-profit company associating European providers of assistance and canis therapy dogs. Although the training has been conducted in Europe for several decades, this joint association of representatives from many countries was not established until 2000 and is the first organization of its kind in Europe.

Pomocné tlapky® is the first company from Eastern Europe to become a provisional member in 2003 and the following year, after the final definition of the admission rules, without waiting as a member with full powers. Acceptance without waiting time is a great praise and commitment for us at the same time.
