I found this article and thought it spoke volumes as to why we have chosen Canine Companions for Independence as our families outreach program. Although there is no evidence that the dog mentioned in the article was trained by CCI, it is an example of the types of Service Dogs that graduate from the CCI program.
To help a child regain independence with safety is valuable, and priceless. Our family wants to be part of changing lives for those with health challenges. Not every dog in CCI will graduate and be placed with a Handler, but we will try our best to get our first pup to graduation. Either way, a graduate or a career change, we will learn valuable life lessons as a family.
