I discovered Topaz a couple years ago and was very impressed with the quality of training and passion for helping people through service dogs displayed by Shoshana. I volunteered to join the board shortly after this introduction to help Topaz grow and provide service dogs to as many of those in need as possible. As a retired IT executive I have a long career of working with results oriented projects and I see Topaz as an example of a results oriented non-profit with a mission to help the many people that can have a life altering benefit from a quality service dog.
As one of the founding members of Topaz Canine Services, I am proud to be part of an organization that is making life-changing impacts on the lives of people with disabilities. Topaz Canine is made of dedicated volunteers who invest their hearts into making this possible so that clients may experience the independence these incredible dogs provide.
I have been a fan of this school since it opened. I have donated to it because the owners/founders of the organization train their dogs amazing . I have known the owners prior to them opening the school and saw the wonderful work that they do by providing well trained service dogs to people with different disabilities.
There are not enough characters in this little box to convey they love, appreciation, and respect I have for Topaz Canine Services. The work they do is unlike any other in this community. They treat ALL tgeir clients like family, make you feel completely supported, and provide support in all areas along the way. Robbie and Shoshana are unlike any other. Their care and knowledge for the dogs is incredible and it shows. Not only do they help individual children and adults with disabilities but entire groups in the Autism community as well. My husband and I feel blessed to know them and honored to work with Topaz Canine Services!
Topaz Canine Services is an organization that deeply cares about their clients. They strive for high standards within the industry not only with exceptionally trained dogs but ones that also really love their jobs!
Topaz Canine develops strategic partnerships by tailoring the dog's training for the individual's unique needs and lifestyle; not a "one size fits all" approach. Clients receive comprehensive follow up and life time hands-on support.
I can’t say enough good things about Topaz. They train amazing dogs and are amazing people. I have worked with them both professionally and personally. They are the real deal.
This organization is one of the best out there for incredibly trained service dogs. Not only is the for the dog second to none, but they take the time to work with the new handler to insure that the partnership between service dog and handler is optimized and is a perfect match. They truly care about the dogs and make sure that the dog is suitable for the task it will perform for a person with disabilities. They also make certain that the dogs that are released from the program are placed in good homes where they will thrive.
In addition, this is my "go to" organization for information on service dog accessibility. They are actively working in the community to educate the public on service dogs and the rights of those who require those dogs.
This is an amazing organization!
Topaz Canine Services is the real deal. Shoshana and Robbie have the knowledge, passion and compassion to work with dogs and clients to bring out the best in both. They aren’t limited to one disability and are working with great planning and forward thinking to continue this endeavor for the best results for clients and canines. Love them! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I have been a client of Topaz Canine Services for almost a year. Topaz is dedicated to changing people’s lives by pairing their clients with a dog that is trained for the clients needs. The dogs give their handlers freedom, and confidence, to live their lives with confidence. Topaz has changed my life and of many others.
Topaz Canine Services is a tremendous organization. I am a senior citizen and have been a member of the ‘Topaz Family’ since fall 2016. Topaz’s ability to access and meet the clients’ individual needs is beyond compare. Topaz possesses the great skill required to be able to understand numerous disabilities and what is required to improve the quality of life for each client. After that assessment, the tremendous training skills come into play. It is thrilling to see the communication develop between the trainer/dog/client as the service animal is expertly trained by this organization to execute his duties. Topaz excels at meeting client needs in a most friendly and caring environment. That is why I call myself a member of the ‘Topaz Family’. Topaz Canine Services brings hope to many with an exceptionally trained service companion, the bonus of unconditional love and lifetime of friendship within the ‘Topaz Family’.
