We do not limit era of service as a criteria. Veterans must complete application, provide DD214, copy of VA disability to support invisible injury diagnosis, as well as a letter from a provider indicating a service dog would be a viable option. The training of a service dog takes 32 weeks to complete. The first 10 weeks is spent teaching the team basic obedience skills, culminating the Canine Good Citizen Evaluation for all teams. To begin the next level of training, the team must successfully pass this evaluation. The next 21 weeks is spent in the training center and in public outings teaching advanced obedience, specific tasks, and public access training, all in preparation for the teams to begin working as a fully functioning service dog team. The final step is teams successfully passing the Canine Good Citizen Urban and Community evaluations well as the public access evaluation.
