Save a Dog – Help a Veteran

Because Life is Better with A Dog…

Service Dogs UK trains and provides assistance dogs to support members of the Armed Forces and Emergency Services who have PTSD.

We use dogs from rescue centres to achieve unique partnerships that will greatly enhance the lives of both. We will continue to support the partnerships as part of our ongoing commitment to ‘those that serve’, past or present.

"..we want to remove the stigma surrounding PTSD together with the stigma in relation to ‘rescue dogs’."

Our PTSD Assistance Dogs get trained specifically for key PTSD symptoms such as: nightmares, flashbacks, anxiety, medication reminders … as well as other tasks.

Besides this joining our programme can offer a new way of coping and sense of achievement, purpose and regained independence.
