ABOUT GOT YOUR SIX K9
Our mission at Got Your Six K9 is to provide the highest quality PTSD service dogs to post-9/11 disabled combat veterans through superior K9 training, hands-on handler education, and thorough follow-on care.
ELITE SERVICE DOGS
The dogs that Got Your Six K9 provides to disabled veterans are not rescue dogs, though we highly support rescue services. Our dogs come from the same kind and quality that work with elite military and police K9 units, defend celebrities and executives, and serve as world-class family protection dogs. We believe that our veterans deserve the very best when it comes to PTSD service dogs and that is exactly what we give them. Our head trainer – Steve Scott – was one of the first K9 trainers in the United States to receive a certification for PTSD dog training. He has helped to pioneer the world of PTSD service dogs in the country and is often called upon to speak at K9 training events and seminars.
MILITARY VERIFICATION REQUIRED
Due to the high level of fraud involved with military charities, Got Your Six K9 requires documentation of:
- Military Service Dates
- Discharge Classification,
- Combat Deployments,
- Service-Related Injuries, and
- Criminal History
Our veteran team will verify all claims before selecting a veteran to receive a service dog.
DELIVERY & TRAINING
Once we select a deserving veteran to receive a service dog, we will match the right dog to the family situation. Then, our team will hand-deliver the service dog to the recipient’s home. Our trainers will remain on-site to conduct a handler course so that the veteran knows how to command his new best friend to get the most out of the dog’s capabilities. Got Your Six K9 will continue to provide follow-on training and support as needed and will happily go back out to work through any training issues that the veteran might experience.
