Detroit Lakes, MN (WDAY TV) - Since the start of the program, 13 Patriot service dogs and their owners have been certified.
Today, eight of those teams were honored with a special graduation.
Completing the program is no easy task.
It takes about 6 months of instruction.
Many of the dogs used are rescue dogs, so it's a benefit on both ends.
Pam Greogry- P.A.D Board of Directors: “And I'm excited about men and women who will say to me, if there hadn't been the program, I don't know what would've happened to me, so it's an emotional thing as well.”
