Dogs that Change People’s Lives

Video, without soundtrack, which demonstrates the different programs of Mira.

  • Guide Dog

    Giving eyes to the visually impaired

    Our dogs help people with a complete or partial visual impairment, a visual and hearing impairment or a visual and mobility impairment.

  • Dog for Children on the Autism Spectrum

    A window onto the world of children with autism

    In 2003, after years of in-depth research, Mira launched its program to support children with autism and their families. These children can receive services from dogs that are specially trained to help them.

  • Service Dog

    A helping hand for people with reduced mobility

    Service dogs give individuals with mobility impairments a greater autonomy. They help people with a physical disability by pulling their wheelchairs.

This Labrador puppy is called Max and he is 3 months old.

Story of a Mira Dog

As of 9 weeks old until retirement, Mira dogs play a critical role in their owners’ lives. A number of steps lead up to the development of this extraordinary connection.

The Crawler

Despite the Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms that aims to protect them, beneficiaries of Mira dogs are regularly discriminated against in public places. Denying access to someone because of their service dog is unacceptable.
