The Faithful Friend canine program has expanded. We not only have our staff producing service and assistance dogs, we now have veterans training dogs for other veterans. But wait! There’s more! We host training sessions/classes for veterans to work with their own dogs to become better pets or even to become their service dogs.
Not all dogs have what it takes to become true service dogs. But all dogs provide unconditional love to their people, and that has a proven medically and socially profound impact on veterans. Veterans lead the nation as a group in suicide due to PTSD. We are proud that 100% of all the veterans with which Faithful Friend has worked and given a dog to have lived.
Not only have our veteran partners lived, but they have lived more fulfilling lives. Some of our dogs have helped with mobility issues the veterans have, others have provided lifesaving medical alerts, but all of the dogs have given the miraculous healing that comes from their love and companionship.
Please help us to help more veterans by teaching them how to have better trained dogs. The skills Faithful Friend staff have in producing service dogs is now translating into training the trainer/owners. Our program can help more veterans, and our veterans will help even more dogs with the training they have received.
