swackett's Dog Walking Index Brings Awareness to Canine Companions

Media representatives may contact the Canine Companions for Independence marketing office at 1-866-CCI-DOGS (224-3647) or marketing@cci.org for more information.

Canine Companions for Independence® is proud to announce its partnership with swackett®, who will use their weather app and dog walking index to help raise awareness for Canine Companions.

The premise for the partnership is swackett’s newly launched dog walking index, a feature that tells users when weather conditions are best for their dog on a scale of one to 10. Canine Companions will be represented on the dog images featured in the app to help raise awareness for the organization that provides highly trained assistance dogs to people with disabilities and to professional caregivers.

swackett founder, C. Scott Gilbert, commented about the partnership, saying, “As the proud parent of two dogs myself, I am happy to work with an organization that allows people with disabilities to have their lives dramatically improved by it.”
