History

For 30 years, Canine Partners for Life (CPL) has been dedicated to training service dogs, home companion dogs, residential companion dogs, and courthouse companion dogs to assist individuals who have a wide range of physical, developmental, and cognitive disabilities.

CPL was founded in 1989. The organization flourished and in 1996, CPL purchased and moved to a 45-acre property in Cochranville, PA. Today, the property includes The Marian S. Ware Program Services Center, a state of the art kennel, and a training center.

Canine Partners for Life is a recognized and highly respected leader in the assistance dog industry. It was one of the first service dog organizations in the world to be accredited by Assistance Dogs International (ADI) and continually meets the highest standards in the industry. CPL has placed more than 750 service and companion dogs nationwide and provides support to over 200 active teams and 50–70 service dogs in training.
