Top Tier K9 Graduates
Beginning Q1 2022 Top Tier K9 will be organizing and managing a nationwide program that gets trained dogs into the hands of people with disabilities. These include protection dogs, service dogs, therapy dogs and emotional support dogs.
We are teaming up with Forgotten Coast K9, a 501C(3) as the charitable arm of the program (www.ForgottenCoastK9.org) . Forgotten Coast K9 will also be responsible for the hands on public access practice/scenarios with the dogs and their new owners during the 2 week finishing school for the Build/Buy a Battle Buddy program.
With hundreds of certified trainers across the country, and in foreign countries, Top Tier K9 is uniquely qualified to manage this program to the benefit of people with disabilities. Our world-class dog trainer school and interactive online classrooms help ensure the proper training is conducted with the end users and that ongoing support is available for the dog owners to troubleshoot problems, coordinate local assistance, or receive advanced training.
Build a Battle Buddy: A proven success. Disabled veterans and first responders learn to train their own working dogs using Top Tier K9's Foundation Dog® trainer program. This 30 week program finishes with a 2 week scenario event taking the pups and their owners on field trips to help proof their work with their self-trained service dogs.
Buy a Battle Buddy: Veterans and first responders who are unable or don't desire to train their own service dogs can acquire a Foundation Dog already trained and learn to manage that dog through Top Tier K9's Pet trainer program. this 8 week program finishes with the same 2 week scenario event as the Build a Battle Buddy program
ESDogs: The ESDogs program matches up a veteran or first responder with a local rescue dog that is fit to be a solid emotional support or therapy dog. Certified Top Tier K9 trainers then train that rescue dog through their own local dog training businesses, train the veteran/first responder to manage the dog, and provide ongoing support for the team.
Business Boot Camp: All participants are eligible to attend Top Tier K9's Business Boot Camp to learn to start and run their own dog training businesses. This program is managed through www.TopTierTeams.com and provides world-class project management and business development training for entrepreneurs and small teams.
Top Tier K9 trains the person with disabilities through our Academy for Dog Trainers and local Top Tier K9 certified dog trainers provide the ongoing support for the veteran/first responder and their new support dog.
