Veteran Therapy Dog Training

Rep. Steve Stivers has created a dog training program to help Veterans with post-traumatic stress. "As a nation, we share a moral obligation to care for our veterans when they return home and to provide them with meaningful therapies to help them deal with any service-related issues they may have — whether physical or mental,I have personally met veterans whose lives have been dramatically improved through working with a service dog," Stivers said in a statement. They find dogs who have past the test to be a therapy dog's, mostly puppy's, and pair them with a Veteran with PTSD. They hope by doing this it will help the Veterans and maybe make it possibly for them to get jobs and not become homeless.
I fell that they should do this as I have family who are Veterans and even though they do not have PTSD it would still work well. There's nothing that heals people more then a loving companion and dogs are perfect for the roll.
