Mission Statement

Bring service dogs and post-9/11 Veterans together to enrich the lives of both. Follow-up communication with our Veterans after they leave us continues for life. This level of dedication is how we are setting a new standard for excellence in the world of service dogs.


Our Mission

Leashes of Valor is a national nonprofit working to provide a highly-trained service dog to every post-9/11 Veteran who needs one to ease the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or Military Sexual Trauma (MST), an underlying trauma to PTSD.

Our Story

Leashes of Valor is a non-profit organization founded in May 2017 by Dozer and Axel LLC. Founders
Danique Masingill, Jason Haag and Matt Masingill are all United States Military Veterans with over 40 years of combined service and expertise in service dog policy and law, military canines and canine training. We know the healing power of canines because we’ve experienced it ourselves.

Our Facility

Leashes of Valor is located on a 20-acre farm in rural Virginia, where we have our live-in facility for our Warriors and service dogs. At max operation, our facility graduates three service dog teams per month. Training a service dog is expensive, costing upwards of $25,000 per dog. This is due to the long period of time necessary to ensure the quality of training these dogs receive. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, Veterans who receive a Leashes of Valor service dog pay nothing.
