Empowering Our Veteran Family

One Dog At A Time

About Us

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

Our Philosophy

We’re revolutionizing the “service dogs for Veterans” model. 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 American Military Veterans by developing a powerful bond with their dog & their community. 

With a comprehensive Veteran-centric methodology, we thrive on utilizing a strengths-based approach to assist Veterans and their dogs with our Life Buddy program, or introducing them to our Service Dog Academy partners if their needs are greater. Our goal is to work with our Veterans to empower themselves through the love of dogs.

You do not need to have a disability or specific need to be in a Sierra Delta program with a dog.
