The name Fire Team K9s is homage to the smallest unit in the Canadian forces. A Fire Team is two soldiers who count on each other. A service dog is your fire team partner, “Because when coming home is a fight, you aren’t issued a fire team partner.”
We have witnessed first-hand the positive impact that service dogs have in the lives of veterans and first responders.
A fire team allows individuals to rely on each other to complete and accomplish day to day tasks that would otherwise seem impossible by themselves. These teams have gone through lengths of training to be each other’s fire team partner, and will continue to tackle life as fire teams.
