Military Network Radio and Linda Kreter with Co-host Jason McNamara presents:
Service Dogs Rock! –
|Lori Stevens, Founder and Executive Director of Patriot PAWS has been a professional dog trainer for 30+ years. In 2005, 8 veterans from the Dallas VA asked Lori to help them train their dogs as service dogs. Terri Stringer, Assistant Executive Director, served on the Board of Directors of Patriot PAWS from the beginning while working in the corporate world in marketing and training for a major pet specialty retail company.
Obtaining a service dog is a lengthy, labor and love-intensive process, with most organizations’ wait list of four years. Matching the right dog with the right veteran for the precise tasks means building relationships, training, and fully observing the entire process – including mentoring included while each dog is in service. Learn about the types of service dogs, the considerations necessary, and the value and benefit of unconditional love and support provided to veterans. Learn more at www.PatriotPAWS.org.
