About Our Organization 

Our dogs are protected by the Service Dogs Act, RSA c. S-7.5 and the Blind Persons' Rights Act, RSA c. B-3, in the Province of Alberta.
Our goal is simple: to change lives for the better.
 
We are a leader in the international community of assistance dog training schools. Our mission is to foster integration and independence for Albertans with disabilities by providing them with highly trained assistance dogs and aftercare.
