 Some of the tasks Canine Companions' dogs are trained to do:
  • Retrieve and deliver dropped items.
  • Tug open a door or drawer.
  • Tug a laundry basket or help remove a sock or jacket.
  • Push with their nose to shut a drawer or open a door with an automatic push plate.
  • Pull a lightweight manual wheelchair over a short distance. (Adult service handlers only.)
  • Turn lights on and off.
  • Our hearing dogs alert those who are d(D)eaf or hard of hearing to various sounds in their environment.
  • Our service dogs for veterans with PTSD are trained in nightmare and anxiety interruption, among other skills.
I understand Canine Companions DOES NOT train or place dogs for the following:
  • Guide work for the blind. 
  • Medical alert/response, including but not limited to seizures, diabetes, heart rate.
  • Balance support while walking.
  • Managing specific behaviors such as stimming, eloping, etc.
  • Provide supervision, navigation, or safety from environmental hazards, aggression or personal protection.
  • Solely for emotional comfort or social support, such as anxiety and/or depression. At this time, Canine Companions does not make placements with civilians diagnosed with PTSD.
