About Veterans with dogs

Veterans with dogs train dogs specifically to help veterans suffering from conditions such as PTSD. These dogs are trained to help veterans lead independent lives again, the charity has seen a real need to offer a service to veterans suffering with mental health and the results are incredible.  I work as one of the dog trainers for the charity and see it first hand what a remarkable difference it makes to their quality of life.
