The Canine Assisted Wellbeing Group (CAWG) was founded in 2013 by Vickie Plumer, an animal assisted therapist with a background in equine and dog training.  

CAWG works with a team of like-minded, experienced consultants who all have a passion and desire to improve the lives of young people and adults with the powerful combination of their expertise and our specially trained support dogs.  Our team comprises mental health specialists, senior teachers, therapists and behavioural management specialists to ensure our services and support is of the highest standard and at the forefront of animal assisted interventions across the UK.  We regularly meet to share experiences, learn new strategies and techniques to ensure we are focussed on best practice.  We are exceptionally proud of the quality of service we offer, working seamlessly in schools, workplaces and care homes.
