By now you’re familiar with our adorable team members Robbie and Chief. Robbie, Chief and alumnus Grant are training through Hero Dogs, Inc. a Maryland-based nonprofit that raises, trains and places service dogs with disabled veterans.
Hero Dogs was recently featured on WUSA9’s fun feature “Awesome Dogs.” This informative (and adorable!) segment features the staff and pups of Hero Dogs and explains the important tasks these companion animals are learning in order to help our veterans. Hero dogs learn to assist disabled veterans with many everyday tasks as well as providing companionship.
In this video you can watch one of the trained dogs opening doors and drawers, bringing water and putting away trash. You can also see the care and thought that is put into choosing the puppies that will become service dogs.
Our Hero Dogs represent part of our commitment at ENC to our community. Visit HeroDogs.org to learn more or donate.
