Graduation

Canine Companions graduation ceremonies honor people with disabilities placed with specially trained assistance dogs nationwide. This celebration marks the end of an assistance dog’s professional training and the beginning of a partnership between a human in need and a canine that will provide endless service and companionship. Graduations are open to the public and a wonderful event you won't forget.
