After a long research about autism assistance dogs I came in contact with Can do canines. Even though we have not received the dog for our son with autism yet, so far we have only great things to say about Can do canines. Our questions are answered right away and besides the long wait, almost 3 years on the waiting list, so far no complains, just hope that our son will match with a dog from this wonderful organization soon

I am so impressed with the work of Can Do Canines. Through enormous efforts of volunteers, donors and community support, CDC provides assistance dogs for people with hearing or mobility problems, seizure or diabetes, or for children with autism, at no cost to the recipient.

Some of the
dogs in this programs are part of their breeding program, but some are rescued from local shelters/humane societies. Volunteers help raise/train puppies. One thing that really impressed me about how CDC is that they also have a program with two local prisons where prisoners work with the dogs to refine their skills before they are placed with their human partners.

But of course the huge impact is that made by the assistance dog in each person's life. One has only to attend a CDC graduation ceremony and listen to each person's story to recognize that. And seeing the capabilities of these dogs is amazing.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find a way to donate more money to allow them to train more dogs every year.

Our son received his Diabetic Assistance dog in March 2013. She is the best help and friend! Prior to the two of them being matched, our son had unfortunate experiences medically because of Hypoglycemic Unawareness. That's a lack of awareness of low blood sugar symptoms. All the medical/technical kinds of assistance by way of CGM and an insulin pump could not protect him as well as his diabetic assistance dog does. As a family member, we are so very grateful for all the contributions of time, talent and financial assets given by Can Do Canines staff, volunteers and everyone who worked together to build our son and his dog as a team. We feel so much safer knowing that his dog is on duty to alert him when his blood sugar is low or high and persist so that he takes measures to correct either before serious experiences happen. His dog is a very treasured friend to our son.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hope that more people could become aware of what Can Do Canines does. I think they do well with publicity and fund raising. I know that they provided a world wide kind of forum this spring so that some professionals in our countries could learn more about how they train dogs to assist others, particularly those who have Type 1 Diabetes with Hypoglycemic Unawareness.
