Service Dog Training Program

K9 Partners for Patriots provides a unique dog training program to veterans and active military in need of a service dog to assist with Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Military Sexual Trauma disabilities. Our train-the-trainer program helps the veteran reintegrate back into society and regain their independence through group classes where the veteran is actively involved in training their own service dog.

Train-the-Trainer Program

Complete training program, dog, service vest and all necessary equipment are provided at no cost to the veteran.


Evidence Based Study

Fiercely Family

Support from people who care and other veterans facing the same challenges and understand what each is going through.


K9 Partners for Patriots is helping veterans win the war against suicide, depression, and anxiety with the assistance of a service dog.

A veteran commits suicide approximately every 65 minutes each day due to the overwhelming effects of service-related post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and military sexual trauma (MST). Service members and veterans deserve compassion and support.
