Four Entered, Two Remain

At Guardian Angels, we teach our dogs to think & react to medical emergencies – not to merely respond to commands. Every year, there are incredible stories of life-saving heroics performed by our service dogs. So each year, we hold a friendly competition amongst our Recipients. This contest determines which Service Dog has gone above & beyond the call of duty, and their training to save a life in a dangerous situation. All entries are submitted by the dog’s recipient.

We have awarded a Service Dog Hero of the Year since 2011. If you’d like to view previous winners, click here. 

Congratulations to all of this year’s entrants: Grant, Bolt, Patton & Victor for truly being life-savers for their recipients.

The Two finalists moving forward in this final round are Service Dog Grant, and Service Dog, Victor.

Now it’s time to determine this year’s Hero! Read their incredible stories, and choose who you think should be named our 2020 Service Dog Hero of the Year! Please see contest rules below.
