Patriots Training Service Dogs: The New PTSD

Warrior Service Dogs is a non-profit organization started by three OEF/OIF combat veterans based in Western North Carolina.  Our training is led by certified dog trainer and behavior modification specialist Shane Cox as well as certified dog trainer Chris Stewart.



WSD’s GOAL is to work along side and support our nation’s veterans in any and every way possible through the assistance of well-trained service dogs.  No matter the disability or the specific needs of our disabled vets, we will exceed expectations to provide the assistance they need by teaming them with their very own Warrior Service Dog.  We will gladly train a veteran’s pet dog to become their service dog or we will select a dog from a local shelter and train it for the veteran’s specific needs

We are currently holding training sessions free to any veteran at CarrierPark in Asheville (240 East to Exit 1C, Amboy Road, to the left of the picnic area) Monday through Friday from 4pm to 7pm.  If you already have a dog please contact us or bring him/her out. If you do not own a dog we would love to scout the local shelters to help you find the right dog.

Please check our Facebook page for regular updates on park training cancellations or location changes.



“No need is too small; no disability is too big.  We welcome any challenge and will passionately give back to our fellow veterans from all generations.”
