K9PAD considers all clients with PTSD, regardless of type of trauma. This means we accept Veterans and First Responders, but also civilians. All clients are considered by their needs and what resources we have available to assist. Clients have their needs accommodated for and are treated with compassion.
Examples of tasks include: finding a bench, deep pressure therapy, alerting to panic and anxiety attacks, proprioception assistance, turning on lights, responding to night terrors, grounding, etc.
There is no fee for our Service Dogs. We do charge a $2000 training and equipment fee. This covers the Team Training and K9PAD Certification as well as some of the supplies and equipment needed.
