Patriot Assistance Dogs fill a specific demonstrated need created by the
veteran's disabilities. The goal of Patriot Assistance Dogs is to place
these much needed assets with the veteran and at no charge to the
veteran. The dogs used in this program may be donated, rescued or bred
for the program.
Each Patriot Assistance Dog will be trained to meet
individual veteran's needs by:
- Reminding veteran to take medication
- Interrupting harmful behavior
- Leading away from stressful situations
- Getting help when necessary
- Waking from night terrors
- Interrupting panic attacks
- "Clearing" a room or apartment
- Maintaining a veteran's personal space
