Veterans must be willing and able to attend residential training with VWD, local 1-2-1 personal training with one of our professional trainers, then follow on with the in-home and public training process.
Veterans must be committed to maintaining the dog’s training throughout the lifetime of the partnership, and to providing for the well-being of the dog (veterinary care, proper grooming, exercise, etc.).
Veterans must also be willing to uphold the standards set by VWD for assistance dog partnerships.
VWD provides ongoing support for the lifetime of our partnerships.
