Charlene Agan and her dog Benning, competing with Valor Service Dogs says "Benning is one of Valor's Service Dogs in training. Valor offers purpose-bred golden retrievers to post-9/11 wounded veterans. Benning is being specially trained to be a mobility assistance/PTSD dog with the purpose of mitigating symptoms of PTSD and/or assisting with completion of daily tasks. I am a supporter of Valor since its inception and a good friend with the individual who is the Puppy Coach for Benning and she is also the individual who bought the Kuranda bed for him, which he loves. Benning's Kuranda is an extra large so I believe the fleece should be accordingly."
Carol Lansford and her team at Valor Service Dogs says "Valor Service Dogs is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization that helps post-9/11 combat wounded veterans regain their independence, return to civilian life, and maintain successful partnerships through the training and placing of mobility assistance and PTSD service dogs.
