The benefits of having that faithful and furry friend at our side are well known and working service dogs have provided essential support for their human friends with a variety of needs for years. Did you know that service dogs are also being trained to assist soldiers coping with PTSD? A trained dog can help its teammate with emotional regulation and provide a sense of security and well-being – offering critical support for managing life with PTSD.
There are a number of patriotic/Americana themed designs in the Erica Michaels line, and a portion of the proceeds for each is donated directly to the Train A Dog – Save A Warrior program. It's a win-win for all involved!
Learn more about the program at www.tadsaw.org. They are doing wonderful things around the country to help our soldiers coping with PTSD and the dogs they rescue.
