Companion Dogs Bring Loyalty and Love.
A welcome addition to the family. Dogs by nature love attention and affection. Our goal is to help heal the emotional wounds of military veterans, first responders, and their families by matching them with a shelter dog. Our professional trainers can train the or assist the handler in training the dog for good manners.
Companion dogs force their guardians to focus on the dogs needs, displacing behaviors where people dwell on their own circumstances and problems. Their needs demand action, whether it is to be fed, groomed or out for daily walks – and these demands and their immediacy help veterans coping with psychological trauma regain a sense of purpose, confidence and optimism in their lives.
