D.A.W.G.S Project, INC is a Non – Profit organization (awaiting 501c3 status) created to give back the family and sense of purpose Warriors are missing in order to move forward in life. This project gets an A, it's very ambitious and has a lot of goals associated with it.
D.A.W.G.S. Project, Inc. stands for “Dogs Warriors Group Selection”, and is owned by the United States Army Veterans. We are dedicated to the assistance and recovery of Veterans/Civilians in need of physical, mental and/or social rehabilitation. We specialize in re-acclimating Veterans, from all eras, back to their civilian lives.
D.A.W.G.S Project partners with companies local to the Warrior in order to meet his/ her needs. When a Warrior joins D.A.W.G.S Project, he/she meets with a member to determine what their needs are and the process we will take together to aid the wounds and continue moving towards a prosperous life.

They have several courses prepared.
Advance Leadership Course.
Advance leadership course offers stunning course areas, and a reputation of expertise in training instructors that makes it an ideal location for a 50-day instructor course. During this course, students will have the opportunity to learn and master sea kayaking, rock climbing, mountaineering, wilderness medicine and light weight backpacking in some of the most renowned course areas in the United States, while building the human and educational skills necessary to be an effective instructor.
All the while, students are gaining their own D.A.W.G.S. Project experience, working in a team, pushing personal limits and exploring personal values. Veterans will also have the opportunity to explore how to structure this experience for others in the future.
Veterans will also experience first-hand the working of courses and base camps behind-the-scenes. At the end of the course, veterans will leave with Wilderness First Responder certification; skills and experience in sea kayaking, light weight backpacking, mountaineering, rock climbing, wilderness travel, and state-of-the-art training in safety management and educational programming.
