Braach Shepherds 4 veterans
Who We Are
We owe a huge thank you to the Mount Marston Biker Rally. They truly have our back in support and are sure a blessing to our organization.
Fundraising is a vital part of what we do in order to continue and to grow our program. Fundraising opportunities include Pint Nights at Philipsburg Brewing Co., t-shirt and hat sales, silent auctions, raffle sales, and also private donations.
We offer obediance and Emotional Support Therapy training for PTSD & Service dogs. Our focus is finding the right match between qualifying Veterans and a pup that has the temperament for service.
We donated our first pup to a wounded veteran after hearing he had waited 3 years for a dog to assist him. This began our vision to create this program. We wanted to bridge that gap of waiting for a dog. We had puppies and Veterans needed service dogs. Pamela began researching PTSD and obtaining training certification.
We have started a program to continue to donate as many dogs along with the proper training each year that we can sustain to meet the needs of disabled veterans and disabled persons. Our dogs and training service is free to qualified Veterans to honor their service and help mitigate the effects of PTSD.

What Drives Us
More About Us
We are a small, personal touch breeder. Our first Sire’s and Dam, Rocky, Mac and Rebel have great temperaments. In 2015 we started Rocky and Rebel’s pup Rocco and Raven. We have bred for 7 years and found the greatest folks who have our pups. We stay in touch with most all of them and get updates and pictures.
Our puppies are well started and have daily interaction, starting with early stimulant exercises. We identify them with names and as they reach three weeks they begin wet food supplements and start climbing out to potty and explore.
By the time they are six to seven weeks, they have learned to accept a leash and have started learning about the great outdoors, common noises and some socialization. We pre-name them as our part in identifying each one and noting their temperaments to meet the needs of our buyers.
Our pups have served many needs and are capable of many tasks including herding, ranch-dogs, protection and companions for families especially with children, therapy and service dogs.
