Review for Canine Companions for Independence, Santa Rosa, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have watched first hand as a friend raised several dogs as a puppy raiser and then watched her turn them back over to CCI for further training. I have seen the patience and love she gave to these pups. The support she got from CCI as she raised them was awesome. She is able to hand over her trainee every time because she has seen the wonder of these dogs bonding with someone whose lives they can change so dramatically. I have also had the honor of being an adoptive mother to a trainee dog that was released from the program and to see CCI's concern and care over who they let adopt these release dogs. They care about ALL the dogs they breed, not just the ones that go on to make companion status and to me that says it all!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Completely dedicated to the breeding, training and placement of the dogs.
