Welcome to CIAD—Canadian Intervention and Assistance Dogs Society.  In Gaelic, CIAD means “primary” or “first”.  We felt that this name truly reflects our training school on a number of levels….first; we are a new school in Nova Scotia offering intervention and assistance dog training.  Secondly, we are focusing on providing assistance (service) dogs to first responders who have sustained post-traumatic stress injuries (PTSI) that are either cumulative (long-term over their career) or incidental (a specific event).
We are an incorporated not-for-profit society and operate following the Societies Act of Nova Scotia.
Follow along with us as we grow and consider becoming one of our supporters!  There are many ways that you can help CIAD grow…by donating your time, talents or financial contributions to help us reach our goal of pairing service dogs with first responders.

Growth of the soul is our goal, and there are many ways to encourage that growth, such as through love, nature, healing our wounds, forgiveness, and service. The soul grows well when giving and receiving love. I nourish my soul daily by loving others and being vulnerable to their love. Love is, after all, a verb, an action word, not a noun. Joan Borysenko, Ph.D.
