We're very excited to start working with a fantastic local group, This Able Veteran. TAV is a unique program that provides and trains PTSD service dogs for veterans. The dogs are trained to provide a number of services, ranging from recognizing early warning signs of panic attacks and interrupting nightmares to providing mobility assistance when necessary. Each dog is trained specially for a particular veteran, so the dog responds to his or her unique symptoms and needs. The program has numerous testimonials to it's effectiveness, which are incredibly powerful (some are shared on the program's website). We'll be collaborating with TAV to supplement these individual stories with an empirical investigation of the program's effectiveness. We're honored to be involved with such a tremendous group and look forward to working together.
