Meet Cowboy

Born in January 2019, Cowboy is a Yellow Labrador Retriever who was raised in Colorado before heading to the Southwest Training Center in Oceanside, California. Carefully bred and professionally trained specifically for this work by Canine Companions, he is not only friendly and fun, but he is also very sweet and gentle. Don’t be fooled by his laidback demeanor, though. Cowboy takes his job as facility dog seriously, so you’ll always see him with his handler and wearing his vest to identify him as a working facility dog. Cowboy’s official role at The Meadows Ranch includes providing private sessions in the Facility Dog Suite (aka the wellness coordinator’s office) located in the Mountain View building. He is also present during many Expressive Art sessions and Games & Activities groups.

When not providing services, Cowboy enjoys relaxing on his dog bed or taking a rest in his kennel. While he’s very friendly, it’s important that anyone ask before petting him or interacting. Always attentive, you don’t need to make noise to get his attention. His handler will escort him around to all who are interested in a visit. Learn more about Canine Companions at www.cci.org.
