BRAVEHOUND

provides support dogs to veterans who have a clinical diagnosis of a mental health condition such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression and anxiety. BRAVEHOUND is committed to the long term welfare of each BRAVEHOUND dog and the veteran they have been partnered with over the dog’s lifetime.

We know that a dog can provide companionship, promote taking exercise and give a purpose and structure to each day. Our dogs have been a valuable asset for veterans and their families. They help to facilitate and maintain a successful transition into civilian life, giving veterans confidence and helping to rebuild broken relationships as well as establishing new friendships.

Our expert dog trainers provide bespoke support for our BRAVEHOUND dogs and their veterans. Our training methods adhere to principles of positive training to make learning as rewarding and successful as possible, for both humans and dogs.

“My dog saved my life. If it wasn’t for my BRAVEHOUND I don’t think I’d be here… simple as that.” A Veteran
