Senator Crowder presented House Bill 16-1112 to the committee, and discussed an amendment (Attachment B). The bill, amended by the House Public Health Care & Human Services Committee, creates the Training Veterans to Train Their Own Service Dogs Pilot Program in the Department of Human Services. The program will identify up to ten eligible veterans to pair with dogs selected by qualified trainers. Program participants will foster, train, and ultimately use the dogs as their own service or companion animals. Participants who graduate from the program with a trained dog will be eligible, if willing, to identify, foster, and train a subsequent dog for another eligible veteran who is unable to complete one or more parts of the process due to physical limitations.
