About Us

Cali Pals is a family owned company. We work together to raise and train Service Dogs for people with Disabilities as well as breed Goldendoodles for pets and Service Dog work. We are located in Hollister, CA. We operate on a 5 ace ranch. 


We began training Autism Assistance Dogs for a non-profit organization about 10 years ago. We trained and raised 4 successful working dogs. We loved the work so much that Tricia Saldivar decided to go to school to learn more about training these wonderful companions. Tricia attended Bergin University of Canine Studies and received a Certificate in Service Dog training. After graduation Tricia & Diane started Cali Pals Service Dogs. 


Cali Pals Service Dogs has been successfully operating since 2010. We have trained and placed many successful Service Dogs. Our main goal is to work one-on-one with our puppies/dogs and take the necessary time and love that it takes to make these placements successful. 


We do have a small breeding program. We have hand selected all of our breeding dogs and raised and trained them as Service Dogs ourselves to ensure that they will make the best Service Dog candidates. Our Goldendoodles are sweet, confident, loving companions who work wonders for their people! We hear stories that just blow us away sometimes!! They are natural Service Dogs.


Please contact Cali Pals for more information regarding our Service Dogs or our Goldendoodles!!!
