Canine Companions' graduation ceremonies occur four times a year. At these inspiring events, people with disabilities graduate with their new, highly-trained assistance dogs.  These dogs have been in training for over two years and know approximately 40 commands including opening doors, activating light switches and retrieving dropped objects.  The graduation ceremony is the culmination of an intensive, residential, two-week Team Training course with these new human/canine partners at the Canine Companions Southwest Regional Training Center in Oceanside.
