Empowering Our Veteran Family

One Dog At A Time

About Us

In our name we’ve combined our entire purpose: military Veterans and service dogs. Sierra and Delta stand for ‘S’ and ‘D’ in the NATO phonetic alphabet. By using the NATO letters we honor our service backgrounds and demonstrate our commitment to serving all Veterans in need.

Our Philosophy

We’re revolutionizing the “service dogs for Veterans” model. With millions of Veterans who could benefit from a dog, and countless dogs capable of learning precision training, we created the path to doing more.

With a comprehensive Veteran-centric methodology, we thrive on utilizing a strengths-based approach to assist Veterans in obtaining their Guide Dog or Life Buddy and working to empower themselves.

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