Northeast Region


The Northeast Regional Center of Canine Companions for Independence
provides highly trained assistance dogs to children and adults with disabilities 
in 13 states including New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, 
Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia, West Virginia, Massachusetts, 
Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. 

Since opening in 1989, the region has placed 664 Assistance Dogs and more than 350 of these
teams are still active.  In July of 2008, the Northeast Region
moved into its new 11-acre, 39,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility,

The Miller Family Campus. 
The campus' Canine Care Center features 35 kennels, exercise yards, a wellness 
clinic and grooming facility, along with separate kennels and play yards for puppies.  
The  Hagedorn Team Training Residence Hall has 11 spacious fully handicapped 
accessible dorm rooms for training participants and their families. Bogie's Bistro provides 
a community space with an accessible kitchen, dining room and lounge.  There are
5 training rooms that are utilized for team training, advanced training, puppy classes, as
well as community meetings. 
The Northeast Region is proud of its facility and has scheduled tour dates. Registration is required.   

We also provide demonstrations/presentations throughout the region.  If you are interested in receiving information, setting up a demonstration, or presentation, please submit a demonstration form by e-mail or by fax at 631-561-0232.
