Oh how proud Dogs For Life is to have celebrated the commencement of another group of veteran service dog teams!
Last Saturday the Dogs For Life staff and the graduates, along with friends and family gathered for the graduation ceremony for Bill (US Navy) with service his dog Freyja, Bob (US Navy, Ret.) with his service dog Bodacious and Harmony (US Army) with her service dog Gunny.
After committing to a full year of obedience, public access and task training, exceptional results were achieved. DFL can’t express how proud we are to have trained and certified these three fine veterans and their service dogs. Now they are able to go out in public feeling safe and secure with their canine companions at their sides.
We were so pleased when Devon Williams and Tina Casro with Quilts of Valor offered, for the third year, to make quilts for the graduating veterans and their service dogs! These quilts are lovingly made and more lovingly presented, without a dry eye in the house!
