Facility Dogs in the Spotlight

Canine Companions® partner Sutter Health in Northern California recently launched a social media campaign highlighting their Canine Companions facility dogs. Nine facility dogs work in a multitude of settings throughout the Sutter Health network, including hospitals and physical therapy units. These assistance dogs help motivate and comfort patients while encouraging healing and recovery.

Facility dogs make an incredible impact on the patients they interact with, and we’re thrilled to celebrate the important work they do. Visit to view the videos from the Sutter Health campaign.
