About Our Program

About Canines With a Cause

CWAC provides training classes for veterans, enabling them to develop skills needed to train their own dogs and become an experienced handler. The dog can provide the veteran with many benefits: simple companionship, motivation to get out of bed in the morning, and unconditional and non-judgmental love.
Classes are currently being offered in Utah, Nevada, Idaho and California.


Our Mission

The mission of CWAC is to pair veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) with well-trained assistance dogs. By adhering closely to our mission, CWAC works to move veterans from a state of PTS toward Post Traumatic Growth (PTG). In committing to positive "growth," we become one of many steps on the veterans' path toward healing. More importantly, we're able to develop creative-individualized training solutions that meet the mental, emotional and economic-stability challenges veterans face today.
