Our training staff will assist the Veteran in choosing a compatible dog from the local shelter or rescue, unless the Veteran already owns a suitable canine for the program. The Vet and the dog will attend training classes together to facilitate the formation of the "Healing Team" while learning new skills. This class is at "no cost" to the Veterans who qualify!
Our Veterans need and deserve every opportunity to heal. This innovative dog training class gives the wonderful dogs in shelters a chance to live and to serve by helping to heal the stresses, PTSD/TBI, and wounds so many soldiers battle when they come home.
Our goal in this training class is to encourage and support the Veteran and the dog to be able to pass a Canine Good Citizen Evaluation (CGC). The standards are set by the American Kennel Club. Teams are encouraged to continue with advanced training to pass further CGCA (Advanced) and CGCU (Urban) evaluations. Many Veterans in our program have trained their dogs to a "Service Dog" level.
Interested Veterans, please contact us to sign up: Dunes Building 219-996-4770 or Sharon 219-756-7035 or Jan 219-465-0079.
