  • History:
  • Since its founding in 2008, Colorado Service Dogs, Inc. (CSD) has provided service dogs to residents of the Denver Metro area with a wide range of special needs including, diabetes, and seizures, mobility and children living with autism. The Founders knew from personal experience that these dogs provide companionship, security, and independence for their human partners. They came together because of their common interest in improving the quality of life for their community members who need assistance.

    In 2001, Co-Founder Sharon Davis began looking for a service dog for her disabled daughter, and discovered there was a four year waiting list in Colorado. Ms. Davis, already a professional dog trainer with over 30 years of experience, chose to find and train a service dog for her daughter on her own rather than wait for an agency to provide one. Once Ms. Davis became aware of the demand for service dogs within her own community, she and co-founder Lija Day started Colorado Service Dogs, Inc. to help meet the growing need in the Denver Metro area. Co-Founder Lija Day, who spent over fifteen years in the private sector in Customer Service, has had personal need for a medical alert service dog and a mobility service dog. Because of the freedom and security Ms. Day’s service dogs have provided her, she is passionate about ensuring that other community members with special needs have access to service dogs in a reasonable amount of time, regardless of their financial situation.
