Alpha Veterans aims to become a point of reference for veterans who wish to benefit from animal therapy. We want to help our veterans, so it is essential to look into this type of therapy that has already been proven to work. Here are the organizations that already offer their support to veterans.
What's a mental health service dog?
Mental health service dogs (service dogs) are intensively trained to respond specifically to the specific impairment of their owners, including individuals diagnosed with a mental health disorder such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The service dogs are trained to feel the anxiety in their owner’s and intervene by giving them a sense of security, create a sense of relaxation and promote socialization.
