COULD YOU BE A BRAVEHOUND BUDDY?

BRAVEHOUND provide assistance dogs to veterans suffering with mental health including PTSD.
The dogs are life changing and life saving for the veterans.

BRAVEHOUND BUDDIES are a valued role, crucial to ensuring the success of each BRAVEHOUND as an assistance dog.

We’re looking for people who are able to dedicate the time, and energy to help successfully prepare a puppy or young dog to become an assistance dog. The dogs will live with the BRAVEHOUND BUDDY for around 2 – 6 months.

All costs are covered by BRAVEHOUND
