Companion Animal

Emotional Support Companion Animal

What is a companion animal? Simply defined, it’s a pet. For individuals with hidden injuries, the companionship of a dog has been shown to help lower blood pressure, reduce stress and anxiety as well as improve general well-being.

Dog Tag Buddies will sponsor adoption and training of your chosen companion animal. The training will consist of 10 weeks of obedience training, resulting in your companion testing and receiving his/her Canine Good Citizen Certification. The average cost of this program is between $500 to $600 and will be covered by Dog Tag Buddies.

Service Animal

Service Animal

What is a service animal? A service animal means any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability.

Dog Tag Buddies will sponsor and assist in choosing the perfect dog based on your individual needs. The training will consist of 10 weeks of obedience training, resulting in your companion testing and receiving his/her Canine Good Citizen Certification, followed by intensive one-on-one training with the service dog trainer to ensure your dog’s skills match your individual needs. The average cost of this program is between $6,000 to $10,000 and will be covered by Dog Tag Buddies.

Our services are at no cost to the veteran. We will help you find the perfect companion/emotional support dog. We will then send you both to Basic Training, which will include 10 weeks of behavioral based training for you and your new companion. Once you both complete basic training, we will certify through testing that your new companion is a Canine Good Citizen. The training will be done in small groups consisting of you and a few other veterans. If you feel you are unable to participate in this type of group training, we can arrange for in-home training. If a service dog is the plan, you and your dog will go through the Basic Training program and then move into the one-on-one service dog training.

While it is true anyone can go to a shelter and rescue a dog, this program is our way of giving back to you, our veterans. Without your service and sacrifice, the rest of us could not enjoy the freedoms we have. In addition, our services will help you create a long lasting relationship with your new pet. We will provide follow up services for you along the way to help you and your companion or service animal overcome any obstacle that may unexpectedly arise. Dog Tag Buddies wants to give both you and your dog the lives you deserve.
