Helping Veterans win the war against suicide, depression, and anxiety by empowering them with the use of a Service Dog. Veterans learn to train and care for their own service dog, regain independence and a sense of self mastery.
Patriot K9s Of Wisconsin provides training and education to both Veterans/Service Members and Service Dog Candidates together, to create the highest quality Service Dog Team at no cost to disabled Veterans/Service Members impacted by Military related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Military Sexual Trauma (MST).
***PK9P service dogs are provided to our veteran candidates Free of Charge!
There are no required fees or fundraising to "purchase" our service dogs! The vets dedication and commitment to the training program is required. Service vests, patches, leashes and necessary equipment are also provided at No Cost to our Veterans.
We love offering outstanding canine candidates from shelters and rescues the chance of a lifetime by offering a second chance at life to our veterans and our furry friends!
We also offer canine candidates that have been raised and trained in our Puppy Program. These candidates have been socialized, obedience trained, and the fundamentals of a working canine have been already established. These dogs are ready to enter the Service Dog Class upon placement.
Not every dog is up to the rigors of being a service dog. We work with socially acceptable, highly screened and extensively pre-tested canine candidates. We will consider the veterans private family canine that can pass the same extensive testing & screening as used on all potential candidates.
