Agility course for rescue dogs that help Vets with PTSD

Sometimes an Eagle Project finds a sweet spot in helping a community. Hayden Larkin, from Troop 194 in Surprise, AZ, found a project that did just that. His project was to build an agility course for a non-profit organization called A Soldier's Best Friend. Their mission is to rescue dogs from local shelter's and train them to be companion/service dogs for US Veterans with PTSD. The course Hayden built will help the trainers at SBF ensure dogs that are rescued are able to follow commands, perform specific tasks, and pass their service dog examines so that they can be put into service working for one of the many Veterans in the Phoenix Valley. Additionally the course will be used by several K9 units from local law enforcement at the SBF facility to continue their training. In one tremendous effort Hayden's Eagle Project will help save dogs from shelters, help Veterans in need of companions, and provide service dogs another tool and facility to help continue their training.
