Are you suffering from PTSD?

Do you find it hard to go outside your home and do the things you have missed and loved doing in the past?

Have you been dealing with anxiety and panic attacks which leave you confined to your home?

These are just a few of many possible reasons that might prevent you from being able to leave your home and live the life you wish to have. And which is why you may consider all the benefits of having a psychiatric service dog to be your companion and helper. Training your dog yourself will save money and also guarantee a bond that will never waiver.

Excellent resource

Very concise, detailed and practical for self training a service animal. Well worth a read if considering a working service animal. I enjoyed the daily format and instruction to return to task until ingrained and habitual.
