About Us

TUSTEP seeks to pair students with puppies from Canine Companions for Independence to become service dogs for those in need.

Puppy Raising

Our raisers spend eighteen months training and socializing our puppies before turning them in to professional trainers at Canine Companions for Independence.

Our Dogs

By 2019, TUSTEP will have had twenty-seven dogs distributed amongst six graduating classes. Meet our dogs and their raisers!
