The K9s For Warriors training facility is in Ponte Vedra, FL. It is located two miles from the beautiful beaches of North Florida, and it is 23 miles from downtown Jacksonville. This campus is an all-in-one facility which consists of our kennels and administrative offices.
We call the campus, “Camp K9,” and it is 17,000-square-feet with a full kitchen, dining hall, lounge, exercise room and library/card room to accommodate the Warriors while class is in session. At this facility, the warriors reside for three weeks to train with their new battle buddies so that they can return to civilian life.
Not only do the Warriors get to reside in a beautiful training facility, but the dogs do too! The dogs get to live in a top-notch environment with two kennels, totaling 61 climate-controlled stalls and five enclosed dog parks for training and play. When training is done, the dogs get to enjoy a dip in their bone-shaped pool to cool off and relax.
GOLD FAMILY CAMPUS
A 67-acre property in Central Florida was donated to us by the Gold family in 2017. The house features 9 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. The property is powered by $1 million worth of solar panels, making it energyindependent. It opened in 2018 as our second campus.
The Campus Director is Randy Dexter and his service dog, Captain - 2014 graduates of K9s For Warriors. This campus will target smaller class sizes and be the primary training location for female veterans.
