Assistance Dogs will be welcome at all Olympic Games venues. The information on the ADUK website will help you to ensure you and your assistance dog enjoy your visit to the Olympics.

Assistance dog partner Wendy Morrell compiled much of this information. Wendy has been working with LOCOG since 2007 to ensure that the needs of assistance dog owners are met at all 2012 Olympic venues.

Assistance Dogs (UK) has been assured by the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games that there will be an assistance dog relief area at every Olympic venue.
