service dogs

 Dogs and humans have an amazing capacity to work in partnership with each other toward the well being of both. 

Service Dogs for PTSD


Service dogs can help in many ways.
They can be trained to provide a buffer zone between their human and others, recognize repetitive motions, alert to the approach of someone from behind, guide their human to a safe place,interrupt nightmares and many  other important tasks.

Veterans and First Responders


Service Dog Classes for Veterans are currently being offered for free to qualified teams thanks to the generosity of RRUFF Healing Heroes. We have a limited number of partial and full scholarships available for First Responders.

We are currently taking applications for  January 2019 classes.

This is our newest service dog recruit, Jack

Jack is a 9 month old labradoodle puppy.  He was just donated to 4 Paws 2 Freedom by a veteran who could no longer keep him.  

He is gentle, sweet and loving and he weighs a whopping 70 pounds and has growing still to go.  He takes after the Labrador in personality only much calmer!!  He does love to play ball, he is interested in water but has not yet taken the plunge.  His favorite activity is curling up on someones feet!

Sierra Ranch Vet Clinic

Sierra Ranch Veterinary Clinic has generously donated his neuter, health exam and heartworm testing. 

The staff at Sierra Ranch is kind and knowledgeable and we thank them so much for their contribution to 4 Paws 2 Freedom and Jack!
