The Healing Power of PTSD Service Dogs

Service Dogs for Military veterans

Absolutely No Charge EVER!

The dog, the complete 24-week service dog training course, and all necessary equipment are provided to the veteran absolutely FREE of charge. There is NEVER any charge to the veteran for anything.

Mission

We exist to prevent veteran suicide, to provide hope and healing for those struggling with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury or Military Sexual Trauma. Together we provide a positive path forward through the experience of training and caring for their own service dog in a safe environment of camaraderie, friendship & family that brings veterans from self-doubt to self-confidence; from isolation to reconnection.

Vision

We envision a future where veteran suicide is rare and a grateful nation acts to ensure that veterans receive the support and respect they deserve for their service and sacrifice.

Values

  • Respect: We treat all people with dignity and respect.
  • Stewardship: We count it a moral imperative to be socially, financially, and environmentally responsible.
  • Ethics: We strive to be the gold standard.
  • Learning: Excellence is the goal. We’re committed to applying what we learn.
  • Innovation: We consistently pursue improvement, embrace bold creativity, and change.

Innovative

From Shelter To Service

Most of our service dog candidates are procured from shelters and rescues. Each dog is matched with a veteran based on the veteran’s specific needs to form a service dog team. From day one, our certified dog trainers teach program veterans how to train their service animals in classes of no more than 10 teams.

*COVID-19 had a significant negative impact on veterans dealing with PTSD, TBI, and MST. The forced isolation required by a global pandemic was counterproductive to the socialization and engagement required to heal. K9 Partners for Patriots remained connected to our program veterans via virtual training videos and Facebook Live meetings. However, we believe this approach caused increased stress for some of our veterans.

We are happy to report that we are functioning normally again and feel confident that our program veterans will begin reporting significant positive change. Connection and support is crucial to the well being of veterans who are struggling and  our goal of ending veteran suicide.
