Since 1988, Dogs For Good have been making life-changing differences for people with disabilities. They support people with a range of needs including physical disabilities, autism, dementia and learning disabilities enabling them to lead more independent lives through the help of trained dogs.
Over the years Dogs For Good have supported thousands of people, their wider families and communities through the power of dogs. Through the deep understanding and knowledge of the human-dog bond they continue to develop these services, offering an approach that isdistinctive and personal, bringing positive outcomes for both people and their dogs.
At WeatherBeeta, we understand the huge positive effect that dogs can have on people’s lives and how important the work is that Dogs For Good do. Therefore, we have partnered with Dogs For Good UK, as we believe that they are a fantastic charity offering the very best support for a wide range of people.

In May 2021, the WeatherBeeta Team chose to take on a walking challenge of 847 miles from Lands End to John O’Groats in aid of Dogs for Good. This past year, the charity has seen a dramatic reduction in fundraisers due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With each assistance dog costing £21,000 to train and support throughout its lifetime, it is vital that funds are raised to help support this wonderful charity. The WeatherBeeta Team wanted to join together and, despite working remotely, challenge ourselves to a virtual team walk. In just 17 days, the team completed the enormous 847 miles, and so extended the walk from John O’Groats to the Dogs for Good centre in Banbury, a further 592 miles. In total, the team rasied £266 for Dogs for Good.
