|National Service Dogs (NSD) is a non-profit, registered charity that trains assistance dogs for Canadians with disabilities. It was founded in 1996 by Chris and Heather Fowler and Danielle Forbes, all experienced, professional Assistance Dog Trainers.
NSD's goal is to allow disabled children and adults to lead more independent lives, and to overcome challenges they may encounter. National Service Dogs is proud to be the first Canadian Assistance Dog School to successfully pair dogs with children who have Autism. Clients as young as five have been matched with dogs specifically trained to meet their specific needs and challenges.
