Independence Dogs, Inc. was a non-profit group created by a charismatic lady with a physical disability which confined her to a wheel chair.  The mission for Independence Dog was to provide companion dogs and their training.  These dogs, once trained, would assist their respective recipients who had physical handicaps, to live a more independent life on their own.

Breckstone provided continuing architectural and engineering services for the existing facility, including a proposed design for a new handicap dog residence and training building.   This training facility would allow for handicap dog recipients to train with the dog in a facility specifically designed for their special needs.  Once they graduated, both the recipient and the dog, would go back to living in society.
