She founded Dustin’s Paw with CCI Facility dog Dustin, and has continued her work with current CCI Facility dog’s Ovelle and Prairie. Diane is a valued CCI graduate, she not only cares exceptionally for her two current Facility dogs, she is diligent at maintaining their skills and remaining in contact with CCI, passing her Assistance Dog International testing with both dogs every 3 years as required by our organization.
