We love dogs!
Rescuing, training andtransforming lives
Gentle, intuitive, intelligent and full of love
While PTSD Dogs Australia concentrates on training and supplying PTSD Service Dogs (also known as Assistance Dogs), sometimes the dogs do not meet the high standards required by the program but it is not the end for the dogs. Because we have been very selective in choosing suitable dogs for our program, we end up with very well trained dogs that can meet needs other than as a fully qualified Service Dog.
Get to know our dogs
Our Pawsome Pals
Unlike an Assistance dog who is trained to assist their handler by performing certain tasks, Therapy dogs are trained to provide affection, comfort and support all kinds of people, not just their handlers.
Assistance or Service dogs are working animals that are specially trained to help people who are living with disabilities do everyday tasks and activities so they become more independent.
Dogs In Training
Our dogs are gentle, intuitive, intelligent, and full of unconditional love. They can provide you a sense of calm amidst turmoil, safety amid confusion, and comfort in sadness.
