New Year, New Graduations

New Year, New Graduations

Canine Companions for Independence is gearing up for a new year and planning several graduation ceremonies to 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. Trained in over 40 commands, these exceptional dogs are capable of opening doors, flipping light switches, picking up dropped items, alerting their partner of important sounds and many more helpful services. These commands enable a person with a disability to function without relying on the help of another, enhancing their independence.
