Request a Display or Presentation
Dogs for Defense K-9 is currently located in upstate New York near Fort Drum and we ask that you please bear this in mind when you consider inviting us to present our display or educational programs. We do not charge for our programs.
If you would like Dogs for Defense K-9 to attend your event to present our military working dog display, come to your school to teach children and youths about dog bite prevention, speak to your club or organization about canine body language and dog safety, or teach your civic organization or business about service animals, please don’t hesitate to contact us via email. Please include your location, the day and time of your event, what you’d like us to do for you, and your contact information.
We do travel longer distances for living history events and reenactments and cover New York, Vermont, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. If your event would like us to attend, please get in touch. All we ask is that we have accommodation to bring the dog(s) that are part of our team, and that you cover our travel expenses.

Personal / Educational Use
We have created most of the text and educational graphics on this website so that people are able to use and share them. The materials are protected under a Creative Commons license requiring proper attribution, prohibiting the manufacture of derivative works, and prohibiting any commercial use. (Click on the Creative Commons image below for more information.)
What this means is: you may use the text and images on this website for your personal use and for educational purposes. This means you can share the materials online, including on your personal blog or your Facebook account, and you may print them to use them in an educational setting. If you use them, they must be properly attributed. This means that they should be accompanied by a copyright notice such as “© Dogs For Defense K-9″ and a link back to our page so that others can easily find it. If you’re using the materials in print, the link should appear as “www.dfdk9.com”. If you’re using the materials online, the link should be clickable, meaning that it will go directly to our website.
You may not alter or edit any of the images in any way. (You will notice that many of our graphics have obvious watermarks on them. Yes, we know this takes away from the image. However, we’ve had such issues with some of the graphics being stolen, sold for profit, edited, and altered, that we’ve had to take this step. Seriously – we just want the educational stuff to be available for people, but a lot of work goes into the text and graphics. Is a link back and not claiming it as your own really that difficult?)
You may not use any if the materials presented on this website, including text, images, and other content, for any commercial purposes without prior express permission from the copyright owner. This means you may not include them in a book, magazine, or a for-profit website venture of any kind – just to give a few examples. (To be clear – if you share images on a blog that makes you money through sign-ups or through the sales of advertising space, that is commercial use and violates our copyright.)
If you would like to use any of our materials in a publication or any commercial venture, such as magazines or books, please contact us for permission and requirements. We’ve been published in a number of different magazines and included in many educational programs over the years and we’re generally very reasonable with allowing use of our materials. So get in touch. Tell us about your project and how we can help!
