What Is The Veteran’s Pilot Program
Our Veterans Pilot Program is designed to provide members of our Armed Forces with a fully accredited service dog with little to no cost out-of-pocket. We partner with EasterSeals Greater Houston to help coordinate and cover the costs of a service dog, as a thank you for serving our country so nobly.
How it Works
The program is open to active military and veterans. An application with a form signed by a doctor or psychologist must be submitted prior to taking public access level courses
Our Program can train dogs to assist with mental and physical disabilities.
After an initial evaluation, we come to your home and your neighborhood to train both the dog and the client until we reach the assigned goals. We stay at your home or a nearby hotel and accompany you and your service dog to work, restaurants, shopping, school, church, etc. We help properly educate your friends and family as we train with you and your service dog. If you have other animals, we will work with them too.
All dogs, regardless of their starting age or training will need at a minimum: an initial evaluation and planning session with a senior trainer, an application, and a doctor’s letter.
