Canine Partners train dogs to assist disabled folk in their everyday needs and help them gain more independence. The dogs are trained in a variety of ways to help, such as - opening and closing doors, retrieving a variety of items, pressing buttons, raising the alarm, unloading washing machines and much more depending on the needs of the individual.
