I've absolutely loved being a part of Canines for Change for the past few years. Being able to see firsthand the difference these dogs have made in people's lives has been incredible and humbling. The staff and volunteers truly care about fostering meaningful relationships and connections within their community, and bringing forth positive change every chance they get.

One of my greatest pleasures in life is being a Canines for Change volunteer. I love educating the public and advocating for the value of highly trained service and facility dogs.

I have had the pleasure of working with Canines for Change on several occasions. I have always been impressed with how kind and compassionate they are with not only their dogs but also the people in the communities they serve. If I could give 10 stars, I would.

Miggz and Tucker are both dogs from Canines for Change. Miggz is a facility dog and Tucker is a Service dog in training. They are both such good boys and listen well. I am thankful for all of the amazing hands in making these boys the exceptional dogs that they are. Dr. Nikki Brown is a fantastic reference for dog training and I highly recommend Canines for Change for any and all dog training!

This is Roxy. She is a Canines 4 Change service pup. She is at a wrestling meet and as you can see she is watching.
