Save a Dog – Help a Veteran and improve the lives of both
We provide veterans from the Armed Forces and Emergency Services suffering with PTSD the benefit of specially trained assistance dogs, with NO COST to the veteran for the training programme.
The dogs we use are carefully selected from rescue to help the veterans. Once a dog has been selected, a veteran gets partnered with their dog and the veteran will get taught how to train their dogs, look after them, become a responsible guardian and much more – all under the guidance of professional dog trainers. It takes around 9 months of training for the Assistance Dog Partnership to graduate and achieve required standards.
This a journey the partnership will take together for their mutual benefit.
Initially Hampshire, Sussex and Surrey based, we hope to be able to go nationwide within 5 years.
