Helping our Heroes  One Dog at a Time


Our core mission is to provide PTSD medical service dogs for eligible military veterans, and the full range of first responders: Police, Fire, EMT, nursing, 9-1-1 personal, corrections, and related first responders who seek enrollment within our program.

In certain instances, we will consider candidates with privately owned dogs for inclusion within our PTSD medical service dog program.

​CITADEL CANINE SOCIETY is a Canada Revenue Agency registered charity that trains and delivers PTSD medical service dogs to new Military Veterans, and First Responders. We provide these wonderful dogs at no charge to the recipients. Citadel Canine Society is Canada's only registered charitable training school that exclusively specializes in PTSD service dog production.


While we are based in Vancouver, BC we have training activities stretching from Newfoundland-Labrador across the country to British Columbia. Citadel Canine Society is one of Canada's largest PTSD service dog providers, and we are Canada's longest-running mission-specific PTSD service dog provider. Half of the dogs we have paired to date have been for CF veterans, and the other half have been paired with First Responders. Within that group, more than half are with police members, including a large number of RCMP members.
