The training of a Patriot PAWS Service Dog usually begins at about age 8 weeks.  It starts at our Rockwall Training Facility and is completed on graduation day when a fully trained service dog is ready to change the life of a disabled veteran.  This 2-2 1/2 year journey literally takes the whole Patriot PAWS ‘village’ to make is successful, and that village includes staff and volunteers spread out all over the great state of Texas.  From prison cells to college campuses, Patriot PAWS is using innovative and effective partnerships to train service dogs of the highest quality for disabled veterans.
