About us

We are the international federation of AAI organizations, companies, and institutes. Our goal is to make AAI more standardized across the countries. We care about the quality of AAI, animal welfare, and patient benefits.  Learn more, certify your team, or join us with your organization! 


Learning and working alone may be tiring and requires determination. To support all practitioners also those working with us, we developed a community website to make us all connect, discuss and evolve together. 

You can freely ask AAI questions and share your experiences and ideas on this website. We have created tools that will help all of us to connect and learn from each other! We are waiting for your input so that the AAI milieu can boost! Introduce yourself and become a part of it!

Work Experience

Since 2015 we have developed various AAI projects that help to standardize knowledge and certification paths in different countries. Learn more about it!

Therapy DOG Training

That was our first international project! Poland, Norway, Germany, and Austria join their experiences to prepare the first standarized handbook for AAI handlers. The manual is free to use and contains basic knowledge about AAI. 


Human dog teams in AAI

Fantastic cooperation with polish Animals For People Association, Norwegian Dyrebar Omsorg and the Netherlands Open Uniwersity. The goal was to prepare handlers to work in AAI with their dogs, with all the needed quality standards and welfare care (both for dogs and patients!). We developed the online course and the handbook. Learn more by visiting the website!
