Veterans Assistance Dogs
Inspiration for Better Quality of Life
With the increase in military veterans returning with Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Tails of Valor developed an animal assisted therapy canine connection program incorporating our dogs during the journey to become a service dog. This program is goal oriented, with the mission of providing the Veteran regain independence and a better quality of life with a life time companion.
Our skilled companions are trained to work with an adult or child with a disability under the guidance of a clinician. A TOV professional coordinator will handle and care for the assistance dog, encouraging the plan of care and rehabilitation needed utilizing the dog as an adjunct to the clinician. Our dogs are all part of our service dog program with the highest quality health/wellness care and manners. This program allows TOV to expand the education of "The Purpose of the Journey" and provide the unconditional love with attentiveness needed for motivation, stress mitigation.
