PTSD Dogs Australia
PTSD Dog’s Australia is a Not For Profit Charity solely dedicated to the rescuing, re-homing and training of suitable displaced and unwanted dogs to support and assist Australia’s First Responders (Fire, Police Ambulance) and the Australian Defence Force (A.D.F) Air Force, Army and Navy suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) both current and retired.
'You never walk alone when you have a trained PTSD Assistance Dog by your side. Gentle, intuitive, intelligent and full of unconditional love. They can provide a sense of calm amidst turmoil, safety amid confusion and comfort in sadness.' - PTSD Dogs Australia
PTSD Dog’s Australia also provides personalised / group training and Assistance Dog Certification for people who already own a dog considered appropriate as a PTSD Certified Assistance Dog.
As a national organisation PTSD Dog’s Australia also provides an education program to inform and promote greater awareness around PTSD certified Assistance Dog’s to the greater community in both relevant private and public organisations.
