About us

Training dogs
for military and
first responders
suffering PTSD

We make a remarkable difference

We’re a not-for-profit charity solely dedicated to the rescuing, rehoming and training of suitable displaced and unwanted dogs to support and assist Australia’s first responders (fire, police, and ambulance service people) and Australian Defence Force personnel suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Being a veteran based organisation, we have lived experience and understand the unique culture of Veterans and First Responders.

Raising awareness,
and educating
about PTSD

As a national organisation, PTSD Dogs Australia also provides an education program to inform and promote awareness around the valuable role of PTSD-certified assistance dogs in both public and private organisations across the greater community. We also provide personalised / group training and assistance dog certification for people who already own a dog considered appropriate as a PTSD Certified Assistance Dog.

If you have time or talents we would love to hear from you. We have opportunities advertised however we are also keen to hear from anyone else who could help us in some way, manning a stand at a local market for example.


Foster families or individuals ensure our newest and most vulnerable recruits receive unconditional love in a caring and positive home environment while receiving their necessary training to become certified.

PTSD Face-off

October 10th is World Mental Health Day and I will be celebrating this special day by shaving off my beard to help raise awareness and funds for PTSD dog training. It’s a small gesture with a big impact! I truly believe that together, we can make a difference. Whether you choose to participate in fundraising efforts or simply support us by spreading the word, every single person can make a meaningful contribution.
