PTSD Support Dogs
- PTSD Support Dogs are trained to assist veterans and others with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. When a person with PTSD is experiencing flashback symptoms, for example, the dog helps by making physical contact with them, calming them, and bringing the person back into the present.
- Dogs that provide emotional comfort only are not considered assistance dogs and do not have public access rights.
- We hope to begin accepting applications for PTSD Support Dogs in the Spring of 2019.
