Unrivaled Veteran Service Dog Training by Hilton Butler
While many animals can be service animals, none are as common and effective as dogs. Dogs can perform various tasks designed to help and support those with disabilities or impairments, and none deserve it more than our veterans. Hilton Butler is dedicated to helping veterans throughout the DFW area by offering unrivaled veteran dog training programs. Service dogs can help ease mental and physical impairments. Many veterans have PTSD and are in varying stages of handicaps. Service dogs have been shown to lessen their impact on their lives.

Overview of Our Veteran Dog Training Program
Service dogs have become integral to veterans’ lives. They follow a series of set commands, act as faithful companions, and help complete tasks. Our training program will first establish and work on foundational skills such as house training while instilling basic commands such as sit, stay, and come. Once completed, we’ll work on ensuring your dog can remain on task regardless of the presence of unfamiliar people, sights, and scents. Lastly, our trainers will work with you to determine your needs and train your dog to fit your lifestyle. Whether that’s help with PTSD symptoms, checking to make sure your home is safe, or being a faithful companion, you can rely on our veteran service dog training.
Key Features of Our Training Program

Dog training is just as important for the owner as it is for the dog. We’ll work with veterans to instill the right behaviors to live everyday life.
