VETERANS DOG PROGRAM

Dogs helping veterans helping dogs

Circle of Change serves veterans suffering with mental health issues (i.e. PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injuries, Depression, Anxiety, etc.) through FREE dog training/handling classes designed to renew a sense of community and to increase self-reliance, confidence & trust.

Our dog trainers provide dogs for our classes.  Most of these dogs are in need of additional obedience training.  (Perfect for keeping class-time fresh and fun each week! 

If a veteran chooses, then he/she/they may bring their own dog, as long as it meets the safety requirements of the COC Programs (proper vaccinations + behavioral screening by our trainer in advance of beginning classes with us.)
