Graduate Survey Results
With the help of a diverse committee of staff, board members and graduates, Canine Companions recently implemented four graduate surveys. The results came at a wonderful time as we celebrate 40 years of independence. Each survey was category-specific for service dog, skilled companion, hearing dog and facility dog teams to complete. These bi-yearly surveys are one part of the ongoing support and follow-up services that Canine Companions provides to each and every human and assistance dog team we’ve matched.
The surveys help our trainers and Program Department identify specific impacts Canine Companions assistance dogs are having in the lives of people with disabilities. Data collected will also help evaluate the needs of our graduates and areas for program growth and improvement.
