“Canine Companions for Independence provided our front-line science center staff with such practical information on service dogs—the critical role of service dogs for their handlers, regulations around the dogs, appropriate language to use with guests, the practical problems of service dog fraud, and so much more. Through personal experiences, role-playing and entertaining games, they helped us enhance our ability to welcome guests with service dogs and to help protect their rights.” -- Laurie Sowd, Senior Vice President and Chief Operations Officer, California Science Center
“[Hearts and Heroes] was one of the best charity events in NY that I’ve been to.” -- Dana Perino, FOX News Anchor for “The Daily Briefing”
“At our annual NextHome conference, we announced our official charity partner, Canine Companions for Independence. To announce this amazing partnership, we had the pleasure of having Brianna and her service dog Emily on the main stage. Brianna’s presence and exposition were nothing short of amazing. As she demonstrated the independence her service dog Emily grants on her every-day life, the crowd of 800 were on their feet giving a standing ovation at her closing.” -- James Dwiggins, CEO, NextHome
