I first met Leisa of K9 Guardians in November of 2013 after talking with my doctor and we both agreeing that there was a need for a service dog. In January of 2014 I started visiting K9 Guardians to start the bonding process with one of the puppies from her K litter. But at the same time I would spend some time with her other dogs. After a few weeks of visiting with the puppies a bond between Jaco and myself started to build. After talking with Leisa we thought that Jaco would be a better fit. In February of 2015 Jaco and I started working together as K9 Guardians first Service Dog team and have been a team for two years now.
If not for Leisa and K9 Guardians I would not be alive today. We average 22 suicides each day from Combat Veterans and I was going to become one of the 22. Leisa, K9 Guardians and Jaco are my heroes.
Thank you K9 Guardians for everything!!
Dan and Jaco
