Nick and Zach, a Perfect Match!

In 2020, Nick Antlitz was matched with Canine Companions® Service Dog Zach. The two have been inseparable ever since as Nick’s independence has soared. “Zach is my constant companion. It’s like having a second set of hands,” shares Nick. “When I need help, he’s always there. When I have my hands full, he can open the door for me, or pick up something I’ve dropped. Life is so much easier with Zach.” Read Nick’s full story here.
