Invictus Games Orlando 2016 wrapped up last week after several days of competition in 10 sports at ESPN Wide World of Sports. Many of the athletes train year-round in their sport, but there are some K-9 heroes who work 365 days a year helping their humans to be the best they can be.

Several Invictus Games competitors and their service dogs took a break to have a playful meet up with Mickey Mouse and Pluto at Shades of Green Resort here at Walt Disney World Resort on the last day of competition.

I spoke with two competitors from Team U.S.A. who shared their stories of how their service dogs have impacted their lives. Take a look at this video to hear their inspiring stories.


  • Unconditional Love

  • Thank You to both human and canine service members and athletes! We appreciate you!
