Apply for a Dog

Area of Operations

The CVSDU’s long-term goal is to be able to work with Veterans and First Responders suffering with PTSD across Canada.  Currently we can provide service dog training and support in the following areas: Ottawa and the Ottawa Valley, Western Quebec, Metropolitan Toronto, Petawawa, and Orangeville.  We are also able to provide training in the Maritime Provinces through our partners in Canine Therapy for First Responders (CTFFR.ca).

If you don’t live in any of these areas, but you are willing to come to one of our training locations, and if you qualify to be part of the CVSDU, then we are willing to work with you.  Again, it is our goal to eventually provide services to those who qualify and need our help across the country, but it is going to take some time and resources to build that capacity.

Now that you have decided that you are ready for a canine partner, you will need to have two forms completed and submitted to us.
