Willing Partners Canine Education, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to the training of Service Dogs for mentally and physically disabled veterans.
Over the past five years, we have helped train over 100 dogs trained to enhance the lives of their owners. Founder and lead trainer Linda Krutsinger, emphasizes that there is no cost to veterans for this service.
Willing Partners also partners with many regional humane shelters to adopt dogs with the proper temperament for Service Dog work. By adopting these wonderful dogs we not only help the veteran we help clear the shelters of dogs that would probably be put down.
Willing Partners is also the home of the award-winning Therapy Dog Team. Made up of 20 dog teams the dogs travel throughout southern Illinois to visit those in assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and hospitals.
