I have witnessed the remarkable results of the dedicated and knowledgeable trainers and volunteers at Canines for Change. Whether these canines are being trained to become service or facility dogs, these dogs are thoroughly prepared to carry out their duties. The responsibilities these animals perform are to provide comfort for those in need, empower individuals to live more independent lives, alert to seizures and other medical emergencies, and motivate students to succeed. The Canines for Change highly trained dogs have proven themselves. This nonprofit has enriched countless lives at the Grand Ledge Public Schools and recipients of the Canines for Change service dogs. This is an outstanding organization!

Canines for Change has been the best group and program that has been added to our school for emotional support of both students and staff. They have been amazing to work with and a needed support for our schools.

Working with these trainers to train our service dog for my sister with special needs has been a wonderful experience. They are very attentive and passionate about their dogs. I would be more than happy to recommend them to my friends.
