Forget Everything You Know About Service Dogs

Empowering Veterans and their dogs through training and community.

What We Do

Sierra Delta empowers every Veteran with access to approved dog training that provides purpose, innovation, and community through the love of dogs. 


EVERY dog provides a service, and the reasons and purpose for obtaining a dog are individual and unique to every owner. The mission of Sierra Delta is to empower every American Military Veteran by developing a powerful bond with their dog & their community. 

The Service Dog Program 

Traditional service dog program for Veterans in need of highly-skilled service dogs and full access anywhere. We partner with service dog academies across the country to provide this service.


The Life Buddy Program

Custom-trained service dog programs to meet individual Veteran needs and lifestyles with access where dogs are welcome. This is a wellness program for our Veterans and their dogs provided through a combination of care, training and community.
