Can I enter with my dog?

DogMap App for dog owners and assistance dog handlers Plus: A raffle from August 2nd – 16th, 2020


On DogMap you can mark places with “dog-friendly”, “assistance dog-friendly” or “access barrier” – all over the world. At the beginning of the competition, we had a target of 50,000 entries – and we achieved it in the first week. That’s why we are hereby increasing our annual target for 2020 to 100,000 markers on DogMap

Started on Aug. 2nd, International Assistance Dog Day, the contest invites dog and assistance dog owners to mark familiar places, because: The more people actively use the DogMap and make entries, the more valuable it becomes for everyone.
The 300 most active “Dogmappers” will have a chance to win one of 90 prizes!

Why we created DogMap:

People with disabilities have a right to participate in life without barriers. Law and fairness demand this. Ten years ago, the Federal Republic of Germany signed the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN-BRK). People with disabilities are guaranteed the right to animal assistance in articles 9 and 20. Other than the well-known guide dog for the blind, there are assistance dogs for a variety of impairments. Assistance dog handlers, however, are often denied access because of their assistance dog. DogMap is intended to create increasing accessibility for assistance dog teams and is also a very useful, free app for all dog owners.

Who is behind the DogMap?

Pfotenpiloten is committed to making it easier for people with disabilities to get a fresh start with a well-trained assistance dog. We do not train assistance dog teams ourselves, but, as an independent non-profit organisation, we establish important foundations for acceptance and support.

The core of our work lies in the independence of our organisation. Pfotenpiloten and the Assistance Dog Foundation, which is currently being established, act as mediators between the parties involved. Through public relations, quality management, and promotion, we establish sustainable structures in the hitherto unregulated sector.
