“Before starting training I really never left my house without my wife.  Once training started I found that I get out daily and actually enjoy myself.  Having Taco with me makes me feel like my six is covered.  Our relationship in general has grown as well.  He is my best friend and I rarely leave home without him. Thank you SBF.”  ~ Phillip and Taco

"Before this program I would avoid public places, especially during the day and only do shopping after midnight and before 6 a.m. And never alone. Because of this program with Soldier’s Best Friend, I have a battle buddy that will go anywhere with me. We have grown so much and now we are an effective team. She watches out for me and I watch out for her. Thank you all so much for letting me be a part of SBF." ~Mike & Patches

“I just want to write you and let you know how this beautiful dog Hero changed my son’s life. My son Carlos before Hero was a very isolated soul, didn’t want to go out and talk to anyone. He was always depressed and sad. When we applied to this program and he was approved and got Hero, his life turned for the good, this wonderful dog got smiles from my son and he [Carlos] tells him [Hero] he loves him very much . . . When I look at my son’s eyes I’m starting to see a sparkle of life again. Carlos and Hero are buddies. There [are] no words to [describe] the happiness in my life to see that my son is coming around again and just because of this wonderful dog named Hero.” ~Mother of Carlos

"I was diagnosed with PTSD years ago, but my symptoms were minimal. Fast forward a few years and my symptoms increased. I was having flashbacks 5-6 times a day, taking medication, seeing a psychologist weekly and a psychiatrist monthly. Then I heard about Soldier’s Best Friend. I started training with my dog Axle and we progressed quickly through the program. I’m not sure how it happened, but my symptoms significantly decreased. My flashbacks reduced to 2-3 times a week. I am no longer on medication. My psychiatrist told me we no longer need to meet monthly, once every six months will suffice. Furthermore, I no longer see my psychologist on a regular schedule. I am so happy to have been a part of Soldier’s Best Friend and Axle truly is my best friend." Fred & Axle

"My experience with Soldier’s Best Friend has been life changing. Coping with civilian life has become more manageable. I often imagine how simple life is for my buddy Wilfred... it keeps it all in perspective. When things get to be too much, my buddy is there. From the restless nights to the difficult situations, I have something that has been an elusive possibility.... I have hope again. I consider myself fortunate to have had this opportunity. Having this service animal has given me both an outlet for coping and restored much of my confidence. Thanks Soldier’s Best Friend and the generous donors who made this all possible."

“Lopy has really helped me become more of myself.  I leave the house more, I work with her, and I train with her.  She brings me happiness.  She wakes me up during nightmares.  In public she really watches out for me and I do the same for her.  I have her do a rear post almost all the time.  She always lets me know if someone or thing is behind me.  Lopy and I are a very good team.  All the training thanks to SBF has been greatly appreciated!”  ~ Tyloe and Lopy

“I have been in Soldier’s Best Friend for six months. Before I started the program I had severe depression and rarely left my house. Since I got Maddy my life has much more purpose and my depression has gone away. My PTSD symptoms are much less severe. I am also much more comfortable leaving my house. I highly recommend the program to other vets." ~Mike & Maddy
