|Blythe has graduated from CCI as a breeder, a|
specialized program for the best of the best.
Blythe, at seven months old, was featured on Canine Companions for Independence's Facebook page inspiring puppy raisers and grads alike. Soon after the posting, photos of well-trained dogs exhibiting an overload of awesomeness starting showing up in our FB newsfeeds.
It was our pleasure at Raising a Super Dog to collect as much of this wonderful stuff as we could capture.
Featured here are more than 140 dogs. Most are involved with Canine Companions for Independence, others are beloved pets. All are awesome.

Our appreciation to Blythe's puppy raiser, Jennifer, for presenting this creative challenge.
