Taking Care of Our Own

We prioritize quality over quantity when it comes to addressing the critical issue of veteran and first responder suicide. Through our experience, we have found that the most impactful way to make a difference is by providing the best education and trained SERVICE DOGS to those in need.

We strive for the utmost quality, beginning with selecting puppies that have been thoroughly vetted through our channels, where they begin their journey to become task trained service dogs. Each handler undergoes a service dog training class, where they learn valuable skills in training service dogs through our Service Paws Academy. We prioritize finding the perfect match between pup and its trainer, considering individual needs and strengths to maximize success.

Not Forgotten

Every day Veterans and First Responders are diagnosed with PTSD.

We empathize the challenges and struggles individuals with PTSD face on a daily basis - feeling isolated, on edge, and lacking support. At Forgotten Coast K9, we believe that no one should have to endure this battle alone. Service dogs have proven to be highly beneficial in alleviating symptoms and providing crucial assistance.

Traditionally, the process of obtaining a service dog can be lengthy, often taking between 2 to 5 years. However, through our innovative training methods we have streamlined the process significantly. We can now class up and provide an essential service dog to a veteran or first responder in need once they entered into the program in less than six months.

This revolutionary approach enables us to expedite the training and placement of service dogs, ensuring that those who require them can have access to the support and companionship they desperately need. Our goal is to make a tangible difference in the lives of individuals battling with PTSD by providing them with a specially trained service dog in a shorter timeframe than traditional programs.

"So, James had another Grand Mal Seizure. Harley was acting up 10 min before. James tried to calm her down by walking around the house. Then I said maybe you should sit down and calm her. Just as he sat down the seizure started. I ran to grab his medicine as she jumped on him on the chair and I kept telling him to pat her. The seizure didn't last as long since the medicine helped stop it. But she did what she was supposed to do"
