All Canine Companions for Independence teams are tested for public access. As a founding member of Assistance Dogs International (ADI), Canine Companions administers the ADI certification test at the completion of the Team Training course, with certification lasting up to three years. This is to ensure that graduate teams have appropriate levels of control with their assistance dogs in public settings.
