Dogs are an amazing animal. Healing and therapeutic.
Trevor Swenson discusses a few of the basics behind his service-dog-in-training Murphy.
Service dogs can be trained for a vast array of disabilities to mitigate the impact of the symptoms of those suffering from the disability.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) has many areas of intrusive symptoms where a dog has been healing and helpful to me: anxiety, depression, lack of trust, social aversion, fear, not feeling safe, sleep disturbances, insomnia and more!
Training your dog can be rewarding, therapeutic and healing as well!
Whether you are recommended and Emotional Support Animal (ESA), therapy dog or require a Service Dog, the enjoyment of seeing them learn, perform and grow in step with you is rewarding.
