Capable Canines was founded by Drs. Cheryl and Travis Adlington in order to provide information and assistance to those struggling with the care of a handicapped dog, or perhaps just an older dog with mobility problems. In addition, Capable Canines can aid with all issues of incontinence, which, in the past, was often the "deal breaker" in deciding whether to take on the challenges of caring for such a dog, or euthanizing him or her. We have developed several systems that unravel the mysteries of caring for the incontinent canine, resulting in a pleasant experience that simply becomes a part of the owners' daily and regular routine. Our own paralyzed and incontinent dog, Buddy2, has been our teacher and our guide on this journey of discovery.
We are based in Northern Nevada and strive to serve this area with both information and hands-on assistance. But our influence does not stop there - with the help of the internet and our web site, we can reach out anywhere on the planet to help those struggling with the care of one of these very special dogs.
We accept no donations or funding; we only ask that those who use our information or services consider making a donation to the non-profit that we an outreach of: CRCS (Canine Rehabilitation Center & Sanctuary). Many of the dogs that come through CRCS for adoption have special needs, handicaps and mobility/incontinence issues. We are ready to assist the potential adopters with any and all aspects of care for their new companion. No one is turned away. We are always more than happy to meet anyone who needs this type of assistance at the CRCS facility for hands-on instruction.
