WCC's program not only creates valuable service dogs, it harnesses the healing power of the Warrior Ethos and the human-animal bond. The program is designed to trigger powerful mind/body effects in our Warrior trainers that reduce the symptoms of combat trauma.
Training a service dog for a fellow Veteran provides a valuable opportunity for a Warrior suffering from psychological injuries to reintegrate into civilian life. The dogs offer opportunities for Warrior trainers – who often isolate themselves from society – to experience positive interactions with members of the community.http://www.warriorcanineconnection.org/
