The goal of Veteran's Best Friend is to provide the necessary training so that a dog can be the Veteransí Psychiatric Service Dog and help place appropriate dogs with a Veteran when needed to accomplish this. We view this goal as a win-win for both the dog and Veteran involved. Not only does such a union benefit the dog and Veteran, but it also benefits the community by helping the Veteran. Many Veterans that suffer from psychological conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder find daily activities very challenging, tasks like going to the store or even work can disable them.
For a long time the answer has been medications,
but such treatments can be further limiting, have undesired side-effects and
long-term use can cause health issues for the Veteran. The use and support
of a Psychiatric Service Dog is as natural as it can get, with the hopes of reducing the
medications used and helping the Veteran regain their freedomÖby having the
confidence to go out in public settings with their canine companion.
Veteran's Best Friend group training is held at
K9 Coaches located in Berea, Ohio. The VBF Training Crew also does
remote training with VBF Teams at places such as the VA & stores in the
