Warrior Support Dog

Warrior Support Dogs are dogs who have been in the New Life K9s program, been raised and taught to work as a service dog, but have not made all the requirements due to a certain behavioral issue out in public, making them not fit for working as a service dog. 

These dogs are still highly educated and could benefit a person in all aspects of their daily life, excluding places where only service dogs are allowed. Warrior Support Dogs are still placed with veterans and first responders.

Thank you for your interest in a New Life K9s warrior support dog.
