2024 Northeast Region Team Training Graduation Dates:
Friday, August 9, 2024
Friday, November 8, 2024
Canine Companions graduation ceremonies occur at least four times a year in the Northeast Region. Graduation marks the end of a rigorous two-week Team Training program. During these two weeks, individuals are paired with a Canine Companions service dog and are taught how to work together as a team. The bond created between each individual and the dog they paired with is truly inspirational to all who get to witness their relationship.
Canine Companions provides highly trained service dogs for adults, children and veterans with disabilities free of charge. Canine Companions service dogs can also be paired with a facilitator working in a health care, education or courtroom setting.
We invite you to join us virtually for a unique experience that allows all to witness our mission first-hand and experience the journey from puppy to service dog.
