What do we do?
With the support of a highly qualified trainer, dogs under the Hounds 4 Healing banner will receive the relevant training and guidance with the goal of obtaining Public Access Test (PAT) certification to provide assistance to their owners.
If required, Hounds 4 Healing will aid in pairing a suitable canine with veterans who would benefit by having an assistance dog. When possible we source our dogs through shelters.
Our training is in-line with the national accredited Public Access Test. This test is designed to put dog and handler through a series of very achievable but demanding tests conducted in real life situations.
Where are we located?
We are located in Townsville North Queensland. A community heavily ingrained within the defence force as a whole. It is one of the largest garrison city’s in Australia.
