Ron Leonard served ten years in the US Navy followed by ten years in the Army. After retirement, he has wholeheartedly worked with Veterans who suffer from PTSD and local law enforcement agencies throughout Middle Tennessee. But, Ron doesn't work alone - he works with his K9 partner who helps to comfort those who suffer from PTSD.

He also works with victims of crime, the elderly who are battling Alzheimer's, cancer patients and more.
Some of the Veterans that Ron works with actually receive a fully trained K9 of their own, to help them overcome the obstacles of PTSD and traumatic brain injury.
