Service Dogs For Veterans
This website proudly focuses on a variety of non-profit endeavors in the name of Brian Kanterman, which includes providing service dogs for veterans. Brian sadly lost his life in the line of duty, but in his honor we want to help those in need. Too often veterans require attention that this country does not give them, so helping them get service dogs to help improve their quality of life is one small thing we can do to give back to our community.
War veterans and active-duty soldiers with PTSD often find it beneficial to take care of service dogs. These dogs have been shown to help improve sleeping patterns, parenting skills, and lower startle rates caused by PTSD. During a stressful encounter, the presence of service dogs typically make the owner feel safe and realize that they are no longer in a threatening situation. We are proud to help veterans get the help they need with the services we provide.
On top of helping veterans adopt service dogs, we also contribute to helping people with addiction problems get the support they need. And we also help veterans adopt emotional support animals, which differ from service animals. So please, if you are in need of help and support, we are here to help!
Emotional Support Dogs Versus Service Dogs
Many people use the terms "emotional support animals" and "service animals" interchangeably. However, they are different. A service dog is a trained dog that assists or guides a person with a disability. This disability can either be physical, intellectual, sensory, or mental disability. These disabilities commonly align with veterans returning from service. Having a service animal can help them with their ailments and restore a sense of calm.
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, service dogs can guide the blind and are professionally trained to help people with disabilities perform everyday tasks. These service dogs get trained to pull a wheelchair, retrieve dropped items, alert a person to sounds, press elevator buttons, remind people to take their medication, as well as much more to help on a day-to-day basis.
Then we come to an emotional support dog, which provides a therapeutic effect to the owner through their companionship. The dog ultimately provides comfort to people with mental health decline and other psychiatric illness. Learn more about the benefits of an emotional support dog. We proudly work with services to give back to the community and help veterans with disabilities get the service dogs or emotional support dogs their require to ably live their life.
