Jenn Green, and Alpha Bravo Canine, LITERALLY, Saved. My. LIFE! I am an 8 year, active duty, US Marine combat veteran. I was discharged from the Marine, medically, in 2011, and began struggling with PTSD symptoms about a year later. It got to a point where I lost jobs, lost my family, lost what the average person would consider, "everything". I was on the verge of taking my own life, I literally got to that point, where becoming one of the "22 A Day", was a true possibility... However, everything turned around when Alpha Bravo Canine, Jenn Green, and ultimately, Cooper, (my English Lab PTSD Service Dog), all came into my life. Cooper is my best friend, and a literal extension of myself... Our bond is something indescribable to anyone who has never had a Service Dog, and yes, I mean a Service Dog, and not a pet dog. I say this because I have had dogs all throughout my life; however, Cooper and I have a bond that I can only best describe as symbiotic relationship at its best; I take care of him, and he takes care of me... He knows; any time I am "off", or not feeling myself, he just knows; any time I am having a nightmare, he just knows; and any time I need him, he just knows. It is honestly like he can hear my thoughts on some level and does exactly what I need, exactly when I need... It's almost as if Jenn somehow gets this dogs to understand their purpose and what they're needed for, during their training process, and these dogs jump in full force to save us veterans from the demons and traumas plaguing our hearts' and minds'... Without Jenn, ABC, and of course, Cooper, I honestly do not know where I would be in this life today... If you want to support an organization that truly 100% SAVES LIVES; Alpha Bravo Canine is IT!
PTSD is a serious problem in the United States and Alpha Bravo Canine is doing a great job to bring service dogs to those Veterans in need for PTSD and other brain related injuries.
Alpha Bravo Canine is a Philadelphia non-profit foundation that helps our veterans with PTSD and TBI . I'm so thrilled that Jennifer Green has the heart and training ability to help our veterans, you will never know what these veterans experience daily from PTSD and TBI. These service dogs know what to do to help their veteran have a better life and they are always there to help them through the hard times. Thank you Alpha Bravo Canine and Jennifer, now our veterans will have a GREAT FUTURE.
Alpha Bravo Canine has given me one of the best rewarding opportunities, I could ever ask for! by volunteering with on hands training with the dogs one on one, learning the skills it takes to train a service dog from Jennifer Green. all the time & effort to train a service dog and dedication it takes is amazing ! All that Jen does for the vet and there dogs is immeasurable and so honorable of her to run a nonprofit such as Alpha Bravo Canine! I'm honored to have the pleasure of working with her knowing a service dog will be placed with a veteran that suffers with TBI & PTSD! A big thank you to Alpha Bravo Canine for all that you do for our veterans! I salute you!
Trajning service dogs and helping veterans, it doesn't get much better than that! Actually it does, there is no charge at all for a disabled vet. Alpha Bravo Canine offers so much and asks for nothing in return.
Before linking up with Jennifer and Kevin of Alpha Bravo Canine, I had severe PTSD ( I still do) However: after being selected and paired with my amazing battle Buddy SD Lydia as I was their first pairing, my life has drastically changed for the better. I now walk out in public versus hiding in my house, I go to College full time without taking the many medications I was once prescribed to control anxiety and panic attack as my best friend senses my anxiety and intervenes by redirecting my attention to her and away from what ever is getting to me. At night when I suffer from insomnia and night terrors having her laying by my side has greatly improved my ability and quality of sleep. Jennifer has done an amazing job of training these dogs to helps us veterans deal with our injuries of war. Weather it be Physical or mental injuries they got it covered. After the assessment phase she test us out with different dogs until that magical moment that the dog and person click. From there Lydia and I trained to fit my disabilities for several months until she final came home for good to be my Battle buddy for life. There is nothing like it in this world and the fact that it does not cost us veterans one dime for this life enhancing gift is priceless. The team at Alpha Bravo Canine is committed to providing us veterans with a better chance at better quality of life where other services fall short. Please Donate to this wonderful organization as they can only do this solely by donations alone. I cold not bear to see them to be unable to fulfill tier mission. It has changed my life now please help change more veterans lives. Donate to a very important cause.
I had never heard of Alpha Bravo Canine until Phoebe and I started training classes at Tail Waggers Academy. That is when I met Jennifer Green, owner, and found out about Alpha Bravo Canine. Jenn is an awesome trainer and her dog Echo is proof of her hard work. Veterans with PTSD and/or TBI are eligible to adopt a service dog from Alpha Bravo Canine after the dog has gone through rigorous and lengthy training. The dogs are purchased at about 8 weeks of age, socialized and trained for up to 2 years. The cost to raise and train 1 dog is approximately $30,000.00. This is huge but so are the benefits to a veteran who served our country and can now do simple tasks such as going shopping. Volunteers are always needed to help with small things like helping at events all the way to raising and training a service dog. Please help support this small, hard working non-profit.
Alpha Bravo Canine is an amazing Organization that helps our nations Veterans who are living with PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury's, by giving them a highly skilled Service dog to help them navigate through challenges they may face everyday. They do not charge the Veteran a dime of their own Money. Alpha Bravo Canine helps our Nations finest live the quality of life they deserve!
They go above and beyond any organization as far as training service dogs for veterans. There is no cost to the veteran, everything is done in-house, and the overall customer care, and experience is top notch.
This is an amazing foundation that helps veterans that serve our country and return home and suffer from PTSD & TBI. It also helps dogs that need homes. So many of our veterans do not get the help they need and this program is at no cost to them. Alpha raises money to fund for the dogs in their care until they are ready to go into their new home to help a veteran. The comfort of a dog there to help them even with the simple things in everyday life is a relief to these soldiers
