Bonnie Bergin is the founder of Canine Companions for Independence as well as founder, president and chief academic officer of Bergin University of Canine Studies, founded in 1991. She originated the concept of the service dog in 1975 and educates both humans and canines to change the world by helping people live more independent lives.

Bergin was born in Washington, but considers herself a North Bay native. “My family moved to Cloverdale when I was two years old, and I spent my childhood between there and Willits,” she says. She and her husband, Jim, have been married for more than 50 years. They live on their ranch in Santa Rosa with three dogs, a rescue cat and nine American Bashkir Curley horses.
