We have graduate teams that are both Service Dog Teams and Skilled Assistant Teams.
For a description of Service and Skilled Assistance Teams see our About Us page.
Here are some of our wonderful graduate dogs and their partners.
Barb & Maisie
Barb’s love of cycling got her in trouble years ago, but with the assistance of service dog Maisie, the world has again opened up to her even more.
Christy & Windsor
Christy was involved in a horrible car accident years ago and has struggled to put her life back together. Enter Windsor the wonder Golden. Windsor reads Christy so well that he can detect seizures quickly enough to enable her to get to a safe place, provide balance support, and is her ever-faithful cheerleader.
Bonnie & Ely
Dr. Bonnie DVM, never dreamed that one day she would have the need for a service dog herself, after having raised 8 puppies to be trained for others. Ely (pronounced Elee), is the perfect companion and mobility assistant, and is such a handsome dude too!
Caitlin & Cali
Caitlin's world became brighter and furrier with the addition of her service dog, Cali. Cali will accompany Caitlin to school and beyond. They will be living new adventures, and forming new friendships as they go. Caitlin is the first recipient of "The Muzzy Fund."
Hank & Carson
When Carson entered Hank's life, new adventures began. Just a few of the tasks Carson assists Hank with involve pulling his wheelchair, retrieving items and opening and closing doors. The two have become steadfast teammates very quickly.
Toni & Charlie
Toni, a retired K9 Officer, uses Charlie for balance work. Charlie has become known as Harley Charlie because of Toni’s love for Harley Davidson.
Leo & Griffin
Introducing Leo and Griffin. Griffin is a 2 year old Brittany Spaniel that was raised and trained by the Deafinitely Dogs organization. They didn’t have a match within their applicants but we had one for a young man that matched perfectly. Leo lost his first service dog this past April at the grand old age of 14. Griffin is his second service dog. It was a pleasure working in cooperation with Deafinitely Dogs of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Jan & Mac Duff
Jan lost her first service dog, Jessie in 2015, and quickly missed the assistance Jessie provided. Enter Mac Duff, a big, beautiful redhead, that has filled that void and become her much needed new partner. Duffers and husband, Tom make her life complete again.
