OUR CLIENTS

Our clients are the veterans that we serve and the dogs that we raise, train and love. We value and respect the individual needs and personalities of both and strive to help make sure that both reach their full potential. Every time we initiate a match, both participate in a mandatory two-week integration program at our rural farm in Virginia. There is no cost to the veteran for this service.

THE PRIVACY OF THE RANCH
OFFERS AN IDEAL SETTING TO
JUST BE & BOND

This time together allows the Veteran and the Service Dog get to know each other, bond, and become a viable team, so that when they leave the ranch they do so with a sound foundation for success.

Follow-up communications with the Veteran after they leave us continue for life. This level of dedication to both our dogs and our veterans is how Leashes of Valor is setting a new standard for excellence in the world of service dogs.
