Puppy Jake Foundation selects only the best, most intelligent breeds to place with veterans: Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers and German Shepherds. Each Puppy Jake Foundation service dog then receives socialization, behavior training and instruction from our own trainers. Dogs are trained to perform tasks such as opening doors, retrieving items, 'block', 'check' and much more. Once paired with a wounded veteran, the service dogs are trained additional skills, specific to the needs of the individual.
