AHEPA’S SERVICE DOGS FOR WARRIORS PROGRAM PROVIDES SPECIALLY TRAINED DOGS FOR VETERANS SUFFERING FROM PTSD.

PTSD Dogs are trained to:

  • Provide assistance in a medical crisis
  • Provide treatment related assistance
  • Provide assistance in coping with emotional overload
  • Perform security enhancement tasks
Specially trained PTSD dogs can provide a sense of security, calming effects and physical exercise that can make a positive difference in the life of a service member suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Like all assistance dogs, a psychiatric service dog is individually trained to do work or perform tasks that mitigate their handler’s disability. Training may include providing environmental assessment (in such cases as paranoia or hallucinations), signaling behaviors (such as interrupting repetitive or injurious behavior, or reminding the handler to take medications), retrieving objects and guiding the handler from stressful situations. PTSD service dogs can literally change the life of a veteran or other persons with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD service dogs can help a veteran remain calm by preventing people from crowding around or rushing up behind in public places thereby providing a comfortable space for the veteran or PTSD sufferer.
