Confidence to Travel, Explore and Look to the Future

This year, Daniel was matched with his third life-changing Canine Companions® assistance dog. Skilled Companion Bagheera gives Daniel the confidence to travel, explore and look to the future. She is there to retrieve Daniel’s iPad, which he uses to communicate, as well as open doors, turn on and off lights, and provide constant companionship. “When we are out in public, people come up to us and ask about my dog,” says Daniel. “Without my dog, they wouldn’t have talked to me.”
