Crissy Smith

Chief Canine Officer

Crissy oversees ‘all things canine’ from whelping, to training and overall canine health throughout our Breeding and Assistance dog programs. She works closely with our Program Social Worker to help identify potential matches between waitlisted clients and current dogs in Advanced Training. Once a match is made, Crissy facilitates team training to introduce the client to their new Assistance dog. Clients undergo yearly recertification during their 8 year working partnership.
