PTSD Service Dogs

Service Dog Training for Military Veterans

K9 Partners for Patriots is Devoted to Ending Veteran Suicide

Veterans struggling with PTSD, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and military sexual trauma (MST) identify on a special level with dogs that have been abandoned, mistreated, or neglected. Most of our dogs come from kill shelters and rescues and are placed into loving homes living a life of purpose with the veterans who need them.

The Healing Power of PTSD Service Dogs

Working 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.

From Shelter To Service

Most of our service dog candidates are procured from shelters and rescues. Every rescued dog is matched with a veteran based on the veteran’s specific needs and the veteran learns to train the dog to be their service dog.

Veteran Testimonials

Hope and inspiration from veterans and friends.

Shane S.

U.S. Army Veteran

Before I came to the program, I was in a bad place in my life. I was living with nightmares and crippling social anxiety from PTSD that made me a recluse. A mental health professional with the VA mentioned that a service dog might help me. I contacted K9P4P and they provided me with Jake to be my partner on this journey to better mental health.

Angelique H.

U.S. Navy Veteran

I truly feel if not for Mary and everyone at K9 Partners for Patriots I don’t think I would have made it another 6 months. This organization has saved my life and by doing that they have saved my family’s sanity.

See the many ways you can join our mission and positively impact the lives of veterans and rescue dogs. Whatever your contribution, you’ll be helping these teams find hope and healing on their path to recovery together.

*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.
