Tails of Valor®, Paws of Honor’s (TOV) mission is to provide rehabilitation through non-medicinal therapies by training service canines for Veterans/participants suffering with PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury). TOV provides trained companions who aid and assist in their daily routines, improving their quality of life. Below are the program available:

TOV’s Canine Connections is open to veterans from the community seeking to improve their quality of life by experiencing the warmth and patience of a non-judgmental partner. Our canines can enhance a therapeutic environment which will reduce friction caused when experiencing social activities, thus leading to increased communication and focus. Our wellness staff provides the support needed for positive physical and mental health social interactions during sessions with our canines, all of who are named in honor of a fallen soldier.

Each particular activity, command or exercise, taught to the canine during their journey of 16-24 months of training, correlates to symptoms, known or unknown, to the participant. All our dogs learn more than 100 exposures of everyday living, over 30 commands and tasks that are specific to their Veteran. Upon completion of their training (1,500-2,000 hours), these fully-trained ADA guideline service dogs are given at no cost to a Veteran.
