Team Training Program
After the veteran has been accepted into the training program, the next step is to define the tasks, and skills needed to best assist the veteran with his/her disability.Veterans are being scheduled to meet with the trainer, so he can understand their needs, and begin to identify potential dogs in the shelters which might be suitable. All the dogs match with veterans based on strength level, temperament, the Veteran’s needs, personality, and life style. Once the dog/dogs who meet the requirement are identified the process of adoptions begins followed by the obedience training.The veteran and his new partner train together under the supervision of a U.S. Kennels Inc. trainer, for a minimum of 120 hours over the course of 10-12 months in a multitude of public and private places. Such as stores, workplace, hospitals, public transportation etc.
