I believe there are low cost and agencies to help you get a dog, and train and work with it. It's a tough job and not all dogs can be a great service dog so best to make sure you don't end up with a house full of dogs on your journey to get one that works best.

Here's links to some groups that you should contact:

Patriot PAWS | Service Dog Training

Freedom Service Dogs | Rescuing Dogs, Transforming Lives

Hero Dogs Inc | Service Dogs for Wounded Veterans

4 Paws for Veterans - 4 Paws For Ability

Military Service Dogs, Therapy Dogs and Companion Pets ~ Veterans

Good luck!

A couple of more:

TADSAW - Train a Dog Save a Warrior

Companions for Heroes:
Home | C4H

CfH works with shelters and rescues in my area, and they've got a good reputation.

Where do you live? What do you need the dog to do for you?
