Training a Canine Companions assistance dog in 40 commands requires a lot of kibble! Not only do our dogs in professional training get balanced meals twice a day, they also get kibble for being a “very good dog” when learning commands to enhance independence for a person with a disability. Each week, volunteers and instructors bathe, brush teeth, clip nails and groom each dog in professional training. Your gift will help provide the kibble and supplies needed.
