Graduate Profile

Joe & Trigger

Joe served 4 years active duty with the US Marine Corp and 9 years with the South Carolina National Guard, and was deployed to the Persian Gulf War and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

With Trigger, a 1 year-old Blue Heeler, and the completion of the Service Dog training program, Joe reports a 38% reduction in his life-limiting symptoms, (Using the PCL-5 self-assessment before and after training.)

Now that he and Trigger have graduated, the first word that comes to mind for Joe is accomplishment. �To see Trigger working with purpose and focus, and see how excited he is doing it, is everything I�d hoped for!.�

This accomplishment is all the more significant because Joe initially had concerns about whether Trigger would be trainable. But as Joe said: �The high training standards and coaching transformed both Trigger and me as his handler into an awesome team.� Clearly Trigger�s success is Joe�s success.

Joe�s appreciation for the service dog training program extends beyond the wonderful relationship he and Trigger share. Now he�s looking forward to encouraging other organizations that support veterans to incorporate service dogs into their activities.
