Once, an Amphibious Assault Vehicle (AAV) crew chief, serving his country in the U.S. Marine Corps, Lyndon Villone now pursues his passion for service through professional dog training. After earning degrees from both Animal Behavior College and Bergin University of Canine Studies in 2015, Lyndon’s desire to serve others and his unique ability to connect with dogs continued to play a prominent role in his life. The pain experience after losing six of his Marines to suicide post-deployment fueled his drive to create “Heel the Heroes". To learn more about Heal the Heroes see the link on the C-P.A.W.W. Partner page. It was through the help of his very own Assistance Dog, Ice, who was trained to brace for his Vertigo spells and apply deep-pressure touch to mitigate PTSD symptoms, that Lyndon recognized the depth of his passion for human-animal bond. Lyndon’s experience, dedication, and collaboration on past C-P.A.W.W. projects and as Veteran Action League Unit Leader makes him the perfect fit as our Military Veteran Consultant.
