Support Dogs, Inc. is an accredited agency with Assistance Dogs International (ADI). Likewise, our assistance dog trainers have the opportunity to meet certain criteria, take tests, and track the dogs they have trained to receive certification through ADI. This is a strict and time-based process. Assistance Dog trainer Katie Ruiz met these requirements, took the test, and last Friday, we received award notification that Katie is now a certified trainer with Assistance Dogs International.
According to ADI, “ADI instructor certification represents a significant achievement and is indicative of…strong commitment to upholding the highest professional standards of excellence within the Assistance Dog Industry.”
Congratulations to Katie for her very hard work!
