Pet and Vets Dog Harnesses
Every Veteran who adopts a dog through the Pets and Vets psychiatric service dog program is provided with a no-pull harness for their new battle buddy. This harness helps reduce pulling and gets the dog used to wearing gear, so when they begin training it will be an easy transition to wearing a service dog vest.
