The journey of a Patriot PAWS Service Dog usually begins when the pup is about 8-weeks-old. Training starts at our Main Campus in Rockwall, TX, and is completed 1 1/2 – 2 years later when that fully trained, certified service dog is ready to be placed into a life-changing partnership with a disabled veteran. This amazing animal is accompanied on its journey by the entire Patriot PAWS Nation including staff, volunteers, donors and partners who are spread out all over the great state of Texas and beyond! From prison cells to college campuses, Patriot PAWS has developed innovative and effective partnerships to support our mission and help us train service dogs of the highest quality for disabled veterans.
