Congratulations to CRI's 1,000th Graduate ... David Costanza!

David CostanzaThe faculty and staff members of CRI are thrilled to announce that we have certified our 1,000th graduate - David N. Costanza, VT, BA, CCRA!

David completed his CCRA certification in January. His dog Dobby also attended all three courses with David.

"We were so excited when we realized that David is our 1,000th graduate as he's been one of our all-time favorite students, and Dobby is one of our all-time favorite demo dogs," said Dr. Janet Van Dyke, CEO and founder of the Canine Rehabilitation Institute.

David works with Randy Aronson, VMD, CCRT, (CVA Pending), at PAWS Veterinary Center in Tucson, Arizona. The team at PAWS had the highest praise for David and shared more about his exceptional skills with their patients and clients.

"David received his bachelor's degree from the University of Arizona in 2002 and graduated from the Veterinary Assistant program at Pima Medical Institute in early 2013. With his long history as a marathon runner and great passion for rehabilitation and integrative medicine, David decided to attend the Canine Rehabilitation Institute to better serve the clients and patients of PAWS and is now a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Assistant. His health-conscious nature, compassion, and knowledge ensure that the patients at PAWS are in great hands.

"David has been a beloved team member at PAWS Veterinary Center since 2013. Foremost, he is an exceptional person. His genuine warmth, concern and compassion for people and animals alike are inspiring. He handles nervous pets with a gentle, unhurried and reassuring touch. We call him the 'dog whisperer.' Our clients and patients love his kind and patient demeanor and his commitment to helping them achieve their recovery goals. He has a great sense of humor and a consistently positive attitude. The team loves him because he is the go-to person for words of encouragement and a shoulder massage after a long and trying day. He is always willing to listen and offer support; he is the kind of coworker that will help you move on a Sunday. He reminds all of us why we love what we do. He keeps us laughing and even inspires team 5K fitness events. We are so proud of his achievements through his CRI certification, and we are truly grateful for the contributions he has made to our practice, our team, clients and patients."
