These highly trained psychiatric service dogs bring results that medication alone cannot. Trained to mitigate their handler’s disability, a Battle Buddy is a lifeline. They wake their handler from nightmares, remind them of medications, guide them from stressful situations and perform other vital tasks.
You can help save a combat veteran’s life and dramatically change the lives of their family, by donating and helping to provide these basic needs for service dog training. Because of the intricate tasks the service dogs must learn to perform, training takes a year or longer, at a cost which can exceed $10,000.
