COVID-19 Update: Canine Companions is taking precautions related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and has made the decision to cancel May and August graduation ceremonies. We understand that this decision may be disappointing, but we know it is in the best interest of all.
Please note: While the ceremonies won’t take place, we are committed to moving our mission forward and will be working directly with students to deliver some curriculum through distance learning to the best of our ability. Please check back for updated information.
