What We Do

Veteran/Dog Teams

Mac and Calloway

Mac and Calloway

The Soldier’s Best Friend program has changed my life in so many ways.  I never had a dog growing up, so I had to learn all of the things that come with having a dog.  Calloway came to me in April of this year through the program and we took to each other immediately.  As soon as I got him, we started going everywhere together.

When we started training, Calloway showed us just how smart he is by quickly picking up on his basic commands.  Jo Fain was a great trainer and helped me to learn how to properly train Calloway.  Any questions I had about the training or how to get him to do any of his tasks, Jo would have an answer.

Having Calloway has been a blessing.  He has helped me with my anxiety and has helped to keep me calm during our many outings.  The Soldiers’ Best Friend program, getting Calloway, and meeting all the great people while going through the program have been some of the best experiences of my life.  I will never forget all the things I have learned.  

Thank you Dr. Burnham, Jo Fain, and everyone else who make this all possible.
