With a Service Dog, You’re Never Alone

Sometimes, the military calls upon your courage. And sometimes, it takes even more courage to ask for help. When you need a buddy who’s got your back, our dogs are here for you.

A Service Dog Can Help

The buried scars can surface unexpectedly. Depression… anxiety… panic attacks… they show up without an invitation. And when they do, a service dog can help.

Veterans, if you’re living with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or other disabilities, a service dog might be the answer to getting your life back. Our calm, well-behaved, and highly-trained service dogs respond to commands that can help, 24/7. Our dogs learn skills to aid with PTSD, seizure response, hearing loss, and balance issues. They offer love and loyalty and help restore stability, wellbeing, and hope.

With a service dog by your side, you’re never alone.

No-Cost Services, Priceless Results

We provide our service dogs and a lifetime of follow-up at absolutely no cost. That’s right. All of our services—which include expert dog training and conditioning; comprehensive on-campus instruction; and the most comprehensive Alumni Support Program in North America—are provided free to recipients. Our service dog teams receive ongoing phone support, in-home visits, quality dog food, annual wellness veterinary exams, and monthly flea and tick preventatives, all at no cost.*

And with a 99.7 percent satisfaction rating, your peers agree: Southeastern Guide Dogs is the perfect fit.

*No-cost services: our dogs, follow-up services, dog food, annual wellness veterinary visits, vaccinations, and flea/tick preventatives are provided at no cost. Service dog handlers are responsible for non-routine and emergency veterinary care and the cost of a crate, toys, and other incidentals.

What people are saying…

“I can’t tell you the difference this dog is making. She gives me safety, confidence; she is able to bring me out of a flashback faster than any human. She gives me comfort – it’s like she takes you out of yourself. I don’t know where I’d be without her right now.”
