I started as a puppy home in 1998, and later in 2006 became the recipient of a service dog who helps me with mobility and is also a medical alert dog. This is an outstanding organization which holds both the dogs' and recipients' welfare in utmost importance. The Director, trainers and staff have always shown love and respect to CPL's dogs. No puppy or dog is "made" to be a service dog - some are released within their two training years for medical reasons or because they just don't want to work as service dogs. If you are thinking of accepting the responsibility of being a Canine Partners for Life recipient, please know that team training is a stressful time. And, it may take some time for the dog/human team to comfortably work together. It took me around 8 months to recognize what my dog was doing to alert me. Even though I had trained the puppies for many years, I was totally blown away at how positively life-changing becoming a Canine Partners for Life team would be. I recommend this group highly.
