Our Story

K9 Salute was founded in 2016 by Jessica Harris, a retired Combat Medic from the Washington Army National Guard, as a way to honor and remember our nation's K-9 heroes that serve in all capacities (military, law enforcement, fire, search & rescue, and the many service dogs that assist people in day to day life). K9 Salute was created as a small way to honor these heroic dogs and to give back to the veteran and police K9 communities. We will be donating and raising funds to help veterans get service dogs, and to help police departments get protective vests and necessary medical equipment for their K-9's.


K9 Salute is dedicated to providing healthy treats for all dogs as a way to honor our 4-legged heroes. We will only create wholesome treats with ingredients sourced in the USA and from local veteran owned farms. Supporting fellow veterans in agriculture that love their animals and are considerate farmers is also a top priority. K9 Salute treats are safe enough for you to eat... But we only recommend it if absolutely necessary and if your pup is willing to share! Our amazing dogs love us every day and serve our communities, let's love and honor them in return with a healthy K9 Salute treat. 

The well-being of this planet we all call home is another priority of K9 Salute. Our treat bags are made from recycled material made in the USA.

Our sweet Tilly girl went over the Rainbow Bridge on a beautiful snowy morning on December 26, 2021. She will be missed forever and in our hearts daily. She inspected & approved of every treat sent out to K9 friends everywhere.

All treats must pass QC before being sent out to the lab for further testing. That's where I come in. I have an extensive background in treat sampling and do not mind the long hours. I want to ensure all other dogs out there get to enjoy these tasty treats just as much as I do. My person is very picky about what I get to eat, I don't really see what the big deal is though but she seems to think she's in charge of this operation. My hobbies include napping, short walks (I'm a Bullmastiff, don't judge) patrolling the yard for squirrels, barking at dogs on the TV... did I mention naps?? Thanks for visiting K9 Salute and thank you to all of the dogs out there putting in real work every day. I will stick to my current executive role but am here if you ever need backup. Please be sure to order lots of treats to honor your special hero and I will gladly make sure they pass inspection.
