A veteran’s best friend: Daffron Doghouse allows injured soldiers to train their own canines as service dogs
WARSAW — In a hotel room in Colorado, Chuck and Kate Daffron made a decision to change the lives of disabled veterans.
Out of that conversation, the Edwards couple decided to launch their non-profit organization Daffron Doghouse to help veterans train their own service dogs.
Chuck trained his own dog, Zeus, to help him with severe anxiety and to alert him when seizures or blackouts are about to occur.
While on a trip to Florida, Kate was watching Zeus when a homeless Vietnam veteran approached her. He commented on how beautiful he was and said, “These dogs know what we’ve gone through because these were the ones that were over there with us.”
