In This Episode I have the pleasure of chatting with Danielle Forbes, The Co-Founder and Executive Director of National Service Dogs (NSD) here in Canada. During our conversation, we talk about the inception of NSD, it’s programs, it’s challenges and rewards, and of course those very special dogs and people who change the lives of so many in our communities.

About National Service Dogs

Our vision is to be Canada’s premiere service dog provider, pioneering change in the lives of Canadians benefiting from our services.

Our mission is to empower people to achieve their full potential with strategically trained and certified service dogs, catalysts for restorative change.

And our values are:

  • Always collaborating: We work across organizations, industries, governments and entities to inform the work we do in the best interests of the Canadians we are proud to serve.
  • Compassionate caring: We bring our hearts and industry-leading expertise to every conversation and solve problems with a “people focused” approach.
  • Ethical treatment of our animals: Everything we do begins and ends with the dogs in our care. We loved them first and hold the responsibility for their well-being the length of their lives.
  • Innovative spirit: We believe in doing things differently – no status quo here. Building upon the pioneering spirit exemplified by the staff, volunteers and donors that got us to where we are today, we approach everything we do with a spirit of possibilities.
