SFC Audra Rose

Our Board of Directors

I have been incredibly fortunate to do what I love which is working with dogs and their people.  With my daughter being in the Military I have a special place in my heart for veterans so I started Huntsville Got Your Six because of the need I've seen over the last several years for service dogs for soldiers with PTSD.  We provide that help through no cost training for veterans and their dogs.


I've been working with dogs and their owners since 2001 and have my professional certification, Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA), from the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers. I'm also a Certified Mentor Trainer to Animal Behavior College students. My interest in training began as a puppy raiser and volunteer coordinator for Canine Companions for Independence.  I've published training articles on examiner.com, conducted seminars for local rescues and have been the "Ask the Expert" on WAAY TV.

Mr. Gates retired from the Army in 2014.  He continues to support the military as recruiter for veterans and veteran spouses, both officer and enlisted, currently transitioning and previously transitioned, for careers in the civilian sector.
