Episode 59: Service Dogs 4 Servicemen–Greyhounds Helping Veterans & First Responders

Greyhounds helping veterans and first responders.

They told Daniel De La Rosa it couldn’t be done––training former racing greyhounds as service dogs for military veterans and first responders. “They” were other top, experienced dog trainers who clearly underestimated Daniel and the greyhounds who proved them wrong.

In this episode, renowned dog trainer Daniel De La Rosa, President and Training Director for Service Dogs 4 Servicemen, shares with us how his training program works and how he and the greyhounds and other dogs he trains are helping veterans suffering from PTSD improve their lives.
