South Central Training Center
Serving Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas.
The Canine Companions South Central Region opened in 2015. The Baylor Scott & White Health – Kinkeade Campus is located in Irving, Texas and is the first service dog program to be connected to a healthcare system. The campus is named for United States District Judge Ed Kinkeade, who took the lead in bringing the two together. We are proud to lead with independence and enhance the lives of people with disabilities through our expertly trained service dogs.
There are numerous ways to get involved. Please use the navigation pane on the right to learn more!
Visit our campus! Public tours are held the last Thursday of every month at 1 p.m. (Note: this is a new day!)
