Programs: Canine Support Teams, Inc. provides assistance dogs to persons applying to its program as well as an outside certification program for client owned and trained dogs. This certification program is very rigorous but if completed offers the partnered team organizational support and certification.In addition we operate 3 Prison Pup Programs where inmates train service dogs. One of these programs works with Youth's at risk and trains rescue dogs for re-homing.

Canine Support Teams, Inc. (CST), was founded in 1990 to help individuals with disabilities achieve greater independence with the help of a highly trained assistance dog. CST continues to train and provide, at no cost to the individual, assistance dogs that can retrieve, turn lights on and off, pull a manual wheelchair, open an close doors, aid in dressing, offer stability when walking, brace to help support and numerous other skills. CST has its own breeding program, but also accepts donations of suitable puppies to the program. CST is a mainly volunteer program with a broad volunteer base of dedicated individuals from every walk of life. CST places dogs in California but will place dogs out of state if possible. It is CST''s mission to help person''s with disabilities gain independence through the provision of a dog that is trained especially for that individual.
