The majority of dogs trained come from animal shelters. These once abandoned animals are carefully trained by Okada to enhance human life, to guide, and to give and/or maintain independence. Okada Specialty Assistance Dogs is a voting member of Assistance Dogs International (ADI), a coalition of assistance dog providers formed to promote standards of excellence, facilitate communication between providers, and educate the public.
