What a rescue dog can do for PTSD sufferers that drugs and rehabilitation can’t

Veterans transitioning back into civilian life often face hardships that rival what they’ve experienced while deployed. However, service dogs, trained to calm owners who suffer from anxiety and immerse them into a routine, have proven to be a valuable, side-effects-free treatment for veterans dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). War Dogs chronicles the lives of three US veterans who have faced their own struggle to re-assimilate following harrowing deployments, and have subsequently benefited from a canine companion provided by the Illinois-based charity War Dogs Making It Home.
