We had so much fun this Halloween!

It’s almost Veterans Day and in honor of our amazing Canine-Veteran Teams we have created a 2021 calendar of them! We will have a Fundraiser starting Veterans Day (Nov 11) and each calendar will be $15 (in person pick-up) or $20 (shipped). 100% of the money raised will go towards the care of our full-training dogs and the training supplies for our Monthly Group Lesson Program teams showcased in the calendar!

We had a very successful lesson yesterday with our monthly Group Program teams. We will be keeping our amazing trainer Sam (Working Paws K9 Training) busy this month as two of our Canine-Veteran teams will be working their Public Access test as a last step towards graduating as service teams! We will hopefully have a STAR Puppy tester and another Canine Good Citizen taking his test at the November lesson. 

We would like to welcome our newest team Machelle and her handsome pup Hank. While a little overwhelmed with all the distractions, Hank finished up strong and was minding Machelle like a champ!

We would like to again thank the Klein Cain High School organizationPaws for Purpose for supporting us, and for coming to our monthly lessons and helping us work the dogs!

Great work to all our teams and we look forward to sharing next month’s achievements with everyone! Please stay safe.

Honor is such a little superstar! She and Sam (Working Paws K9 Training) made some new training videos to help our Veterans at home teach their dogs some new tricks! Check them out below:

You can see more of Honor, Mikey, Hailey and Tuve on our YouTube channel we’ll be posting more videos of all our dogs in the future!   One of our wonderful rescue partners, AARF Houston just surprised us with a sweet Giving Tuesday post in honor of our dog Mikey who was adopted from them! See their post below:

This #GivingTuesday we would like to celebrate our former foster, Mikey. Mikey and his new mom just achieved AKC Canine Good Citizen status! They will be showcasing their three service skills this month. We can’t wait until he graduates as a service dog, and we’re so happy that The Rescue for PTSD partnered with us to get Mikey and Rita together! So happy for both of these two!   The Rescue for PTSD and AARF Houston are determined to help rescue dogs find a #furever home and we both care about our #veterans. If you are able to give to either organization, we can help more #canines and #humans. If money is tight you can help by sharing this post!   AARF Houston is not doing adoption events but we still accept online applications at aarfhouston.org. Please contact app@aarfhouston.org for more information about our dogs. Once your application is approved, we will schedule a meet and greet. Thank you for considering a #rescue!
