Congratulations to the dog graduates!

My local paper had a nice piece today about service dogs. There is an organization here in Canton named Canines Helping Independent People (CHIP) that trains assistance dogs, and they just graduated a new class of dogs yesterday.

Brenda Mosley, herself disabled, is the executive director of the program which seeks to help in three areas:

  • Selecting, training, and placing service dogs
  • Certifying existing helper dogs
  • Educating the public about assistance dogs

Ms. Mosley started a program at Goodwill which has since been discontinued, and she started CHIP, named after her dog, in 1997.

For more information on how you can start a similar program in your area, you can call Ms. Mosley at (330) 493-7643.

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!
