Patriot PAWS Service Dogs is  dedicated to providing highly trained service dogs to disabled American Veterans.  Each dog trained at Patriot PAWS is customized to the individual needs of the Veteran with the goal of increased independence.  Our dogs are trained to assist Veterans with both visible and invisible disabilities, and can help with many tasks that would otherwise be difficult or impossible.  It takes about 2 1/2 years to train one service dog at a cost of approximately $35,000, but we provide these dogs at no cost to the Veteran.  If you are a Veteran who wants more information about our Service Dog application process, please contact our Veteran Coordinator office at
