Why RWBK9 was founded

Brandon Holiday, CEO of Red, White & Blues K9 LLC created his company after being inspired by his service dog Dyson.  Dyson who was his first service dog gave him a second chance at life. Holiday was injured in the line of duty while serving as a Salisbury City Police Officer.  His injury led to complications and eventually the amputation of his left leg below the knee. 

 

Brandon’s service dog Dyson allowed him to see there was still hope for him to continue doing the work he was always honored to do and serve others. Dyson helped to change his outlook and then his life forever.  Brandon competed for Team USA, the US National Paracanoe (Sprint Kayak Team), and Won 9 National Titles, and a total of 14 medals. In 2020 he retired from the team and created Red, White & Blue K9 Services LLC.   RWBK9 was created to provide other disabled veterans and first responders like Brandon the ability to serve again, have a path to heal, and regain the quality of life and financial independence they thought lost after a life-changing event.

The key to providing high performance and agile K-9 teams starts with the initial selection of the K-9. We have experience in selecting and matching K-9 teams to Scope of Work (SOW) requirements.

K-9 CERTIFICATION

After completing the RWBK9 training course, K-9s are initially certified by successful completion of independent third-party testing from one of the following authorities:

EDDT In-Service / Recurring Training

The RWBK9 In-Service and Recurring Training Program extend throughout client contracts. Daily proficiency training reviews basic handling fundamentals like obedience for control and detection training. All training is recorded by the handler on a Daily Utilization and Training form that is reviewed by and discussed with the program manager. The purpose of this review and discussion is to assist in the development of an individualized training program for each K-9 Team.

K-9 RECERTIFICATION
