    The Relationship of Obstacle

    ​​Scale the wall, crawl through the tunnel, ascend over impediments. Test you & your canine's strength and coordination as you complete each go at the course. You’ll find yourselves becoming radically closer companions.

    Benefit Veterans & Canines

    Canines and veterans go together hand-in-paw. This year’s Tuff Mutter benefits two strong advocates of veterans rights, health, and safety. Tammy Duckworth, now running for US Senate, is a long-time proponent for veterans affairs, and Paws for Purple Hearts has been allying service dogs for wounded warriors.

  • Heroically Overcoming Obstacles

    All benefits of TuffMutter go to MJ Hegar for Senate and Paws for Purple Hearts.

    Donate to MJ Hegar for Senate

    A Champion for Supporting Veterans

    MJ Hegar is a combat veteran, Purple Heart recipient, and working mom running for Senate in Texas. TuffMutter supports her mission to help veterans here at home as she campaigns for a US Senate seat.


    “We deserve a leader who represents Texas values: strength, courage, independence, putting our families first — because we sure as heck don’t value the weakness, partisanship, and gridlock that’s representing us now. So saddle up, Texas, because we’ve got work to do.” - MJ Hegar

    The Wounded Warrior's Best Friend

    Since 2006, Paws for Purple Hearts has supported wounded combat veterans by training service dogs for wounded warriors. Their therapeutic intervention program also helps veterans with PTSD by teaching them to train the very service dogs that help their comrades. Encourage loving canine care of our veterans with every TuffMutter donation to Paws for Purple Hearts.

    For every $30 donated to our beneficiaries, you get one ticket of your choice:

    • Weekday Solo Training. Your dog is paired with a Tuff Mutter trainer for two hours of the course. We record the runs and post a highlight video to our Twitter page for you to share.  Available Monday - Friday during daycare.
    • Weekend Team Training. You and your pooch train the course together for two hours on Saturdays and Sundays.

    Simply donate $30 to one or both of our beneficiaries above and bring your dated receipt or proof of donation along with your Tuff Mutter ticket.
