Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Service Dogs

A service dog helps combat the daily symptoms of PTSD. Service dogs are trained to pick up stress signals and intervene with the owner to shift the focus back to a positive environment. A companion offers those suffering from PTSD a new outlook on life and sets up responsibilities that make daily activities easier to accomplish.

How a ptsd service dog can help

A service dog will help improve the quality of life and the extent of daily activities for someone suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. The pains of PTSD can restrict someone from going outside or doing the daily activities that are necessary to live a healthy and active life.

PTSD Service Dog Training

The training process that Paws of War service dogs go through prepares them to pick up on the acute signals that someone suffering from PTSD gives. We will give them experience dealing with different scenarios of someone having a flashback or going through the severe anxiety attack.

Not every serviceman and servicewomen reacts the same to a dog intervening. That is why we will have therapists will work with you or your loved one individually to identify the best way for a dog to mitigate.
