The Charity trains and provides assistance dogs for current and former members of the British Armed Forces with service-related mental health conditions.

VETERANS WITH DOGS was founded for the purpose of training fully accredited assistance dogs to help mitigate the symptoms of mental health difficulties for our Veterans and active-duty service members.
We produce highly effective assistance dog partnerships for mental health through our comprehensive training programme PALS.
Veterans who qualify through our programme have partnerships that they can depend on to help them recognise earlier the increasing symptoms of their difficulties.  The dogs are trained to intervene with interruptive behaviours to help their Veteran with emotional regulation, grounding, and to remain safe.
The PALS Programme to train and provide assistance dogs for mental health is just one adjunct to treatment that is having a profound effect on helping Veterans to increase their quality of life and regain independence.
