What is a PTSD dog or assistance dog?

A PTSD dog, also known as a service dog, is a specially trained dog that provides support and assistance to individuals who suffer from PTSD. These dogs are trained to help their owners manage the symptoms of PTSD, which may include anxiety, nightmares, flashbacks, and avoidance behaviour.

PTSD dogs are service dogs that assist with day-to-day living, assisting with specific tasks such as comforting during panic, anxiety and flashbacks, personal protection when out and about, waking from night terrors and responding to medication reminders and alerts; a companion brimming with unconditional love and support.

PTSD dogs can perform a range of tasks, such as waking their owners up from nightmares, providing physical comfort during panic attacks, and alerting their owners to potential triggers. They are also trained to help their owners feel more secure and confident in public settings, which can be difficult for individuals with PTSD.

In the UK, PTSD dogs are recognised as assistance dogs under the Equality Act 2010. This means that they are allowed access to public places, such as shops and restaurants, and can travel with their owners on public transport.

Why choose a dog as a ptsd assistant?

Dogs are able to draw out the most isolated of people, by engaging in the training a person with PTSD learns new ways to interact and communicate without fear or anger. Caring for a dog also provides routine and regular exercise, which helps greatly with the effects of PTSD.

Dogs are often chosen as PTSD assistants in the UK for several reasons:

  • A strong bond with humans: Dogs are known for their strong bond with humans, which makes them well-suited for the role of a PTSD assistant. They are loyal, affectionate, and intuitive, and can sense their owner's emotions, providing comfort and support when needed.

  • Highly trainable: Dogs are highly trainable and can learn a variety of tasks to assist their owners with PTSD. They can be trained to perform specific tasks such as interrupting panic attacks, retrieving medication, or providing physical contact to help calm their owner.

  • Natural ability to sense danger: Dogs can sense danger and alert their owners to potential threats. This can be particularly helpful for individuals with PTSD who may be hyper-vigilant and on high alert for danger.

  • Recognised as assistance animals: In the UK, dogs are recognised as assistance animals under the Equality Act 2010, meaning they are legally allowed to accompany their owners to public places such as shops, restaurants, and public transportation.

Dogs make a fantastic choice as PTSD assistants thanks to their ability to form strong bonds with humans, their trainability, and their natural instincts to sense danger and provide comfort and support.
