North Central Graduation Ceremonies
Canine Companions graduation ceremonies occur at least four times a year in the North Central region. Graduation marks the end of a rigorous two-week Team Training program where Canine Companions’ highly-trained service dogs are partnered with a child or adult with a disability or a person who will use the dog to help people with disabilities, working together as a team. During the graduation ceremony, the volunteer puppy raisers of graduating dogs “pass the leash” to the new graduates, marking the official start of a long and valuable partnership and symbolizing the dog’s transition from dog-in-training to service dog.
