Learn about our accomplishments and our bright and ambitious goals for the future to continue helping veterans and service members who deserve our compassion and support.

Giving Veterans a second chance at life

Service Dog Training Program

Basic Level

During the Veteran and Service Dog Beginner Training Class, the veteran works on training their service dog to heel, sit, down, come, stay, and stand. 

Graduate Level

The Graduate Course includes diverse training scenarios and life skills. Veterans learn to educate with positive responses to questions they will encounter in public with their service dog.

Why Choose Us

Customized Instruction For Every Student

We believe we are “The Gold Standard NonProfit Organization” pioneering the way to provide Veterans and SMs with much-needed Service Dogs at absolutely NO CHARGE!

Each veteran has their own unique needs. Due to our small groups of no more than 10 service dog teams per class, our instructors are able to familiarize themselves with each veteran and their canine enabling them to provide targeted, one-on-one instruction when needed.

Testimonials

What People Are Saying

“This organization has changed my life. Chief and I came to the program lost and tired of feeling broken. Now, halfway through classes, he and I are a close team. The people, especially Mary, have been a blessing, showering my whole class with love and constant support no matter what. It’s been amazing watching each of us grow with our dogs and become a bit more social each week. I went from no confidence to breaking down in class because of being given a chance…now I feel more confident than I have in years and I have the program to thank.”

Sara

K9 Program Veteran

“I smile, but I’m hurting inside.
Some believe it’s all fake…
Some believe it’s a blaming game…
But, what most don’t know;
it’s how hard and difficult it’s been to simply survive day by day.
It took a long time to realize I’m NOT alone
…. I’m NOT the only one!!
For that… I’m greatful…I thank God!!…
… I thank you k9 Partners for Patriots!!”

Cristina

K9 Program Veteran

“This is truly all about the vet. Very respectful to the need the vet has to try and get back their independence. The staff is outstanding. The trainers insight to the relationship between the dog and vet is remarkable. I highly recommend this to all vets, a friendly, safe place to start gaining back your life”.
