In recognition of International Assistance Dog Week, ICON Park attractions, Sea Life Orlando Aquarium and Madame Tussauds Orlando have announced it’s an official training facility for Canine Companions. The partnership kicked off with a special visit by a group of five volunteers and their adorable puppies.


Each Canine Companions service dog spends the first year-and-a-half with a volunteer puppy raiser to learn basic tasks and socialize in public and private settings.


Field Trips to training facilities like SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium and Madame Tussauds Orlando allow a dog in training to get comfortable with tight spaces and new sights, smells and experiences.


After puppy raising, the dogs are turned into Canine Companions and enter six months of professional training. Once completed, the dogs are then matched to an adult, child or veteran with a disability - free of charge.

SEA LIFE Orlando is dedicated to diversity and inclusion and is proud to be a training facility of service dogs for the nonprofit. The focus of the visit was to bring awareness to service dogs and celebrate their fur-ever ability to provide independence to those with disabilities.
