This organization was started because my brother needed a PTSD Service Dog due to trauma from multiple combat deployments, other places were trying to rip him off so I called the ADA to find out the truth about service dogs. With my background running parts of the military's K9 program I trained his Service Dog. Sine then Alpha K9 had trained hundreds of Service Dogs for Veterans across the country including Canada. I love the dedication and relentless devotion to our mission from the staff and volunteers. Even if you do not need a Service Dog people should come by just to visit a place dedicated to integrity and doing the hard right over the easy wrong.

I've been going to Alpha K9 since they opened their doors about 2 years ago. They provide a wonderful service to our veterans and those with PTSD as well as great options for basic obedience and advancing not only your dog but your own skills as well. 5 stars!

Alpha K9 is a great organization that primarily works with veterans who have PTSD and help them acquire and train service dogs who help them live a better quality of life. I am a local dog trainer and I highly respect the people and trainers at Alpha K9 they are great people and you can see the proof in all their happy clients and well behaved dogs that what they do works. They are helping people and saving lives and providing a great service for the community.
