Warrior Canine Connection Connects Man and his dog – A warrior with a natural loving healer. The care and ultimate support of the training of their dogs is paramount in transforming the warriors post-combat life. Therapy dogs are heroes in their own right, as these canines do re-connect a warrior’s life with family, friends and a broader community. It is this special relationship, the bond that develops, whenever a trained canine is used to support police officers or that of our precious combat Veterans.
