Hello,

Here are some PTSD Company Canine Details,,,,, “real and perceived”

1st off, I have by no means charged any one for serving to them educate their canine, because I am not a pet dog trainer.

I also realize the fact that some of our veterans have noticed some horrific factors that can’t just vanish as if it by no means occurred.

What sickens me the most is some of these so-identified as PTSD Canine that are remaining put with uninformed veterans into an uninformed modern society, funded by uninformed donations and remaining sanctioned by an uninformed media.

When I together with quite a few some others communicate about “Undertaking-associated Training,” most persons have no idea on what that indicates. If my pet dog will make me feel all “heat and fuzzy,” just isn’t that “undertaking associated?” believe it or not, the respond to is no….

That is identified as an “Emotional Assist Canine” and/or a “Remedy Canine” and that does not competent for Company Canine “status.” And your kind, degree or level of your disability has absolutely very little to do with the skills of the pet dog. Real and only undertaking-associated schooling will make a pet dog competent.

So I will communicate a little about the position of a PTSD Trained Company Canine, and what is meant by “undertaking properly trained.” Some persons think that just because his/her pet dog aids them feel superior, and “aids” that man or woman offer with their PTSD, is all that issues. And that is only developing a wrong feeling of security for the unique.

The position of a “Undertaking Trained” PTSD Canine is to realize and intervene in cases that threatens the handler’s nicely-remaining. This sort of as intervening in moments of “anger, distress, suicidal tendencies and even depression facial recognition.” Now some persons of are the perception that if they have a excellent more than enough “Emotional or Remedy Canine,” they could be Alright. however I can inform you in the real earth that is simply not the case. And any one that endorses and encourages this perception is both perpetuating the fraud or enabling it.

The “Emotional/Remedy Canine” theory is a pretty short time period solution to a pretty sophisticated extended-time period infliction, and that is why PTSD is a pretty real disability and is identified as a “ailment”. As the heat and fuzzy inner thoughts will commence to wear slender and the substandard pet dog starts to be a lot less and a lot less powerful, developing a pretty dangerous condition for the veteran or their adore kinds. What comes about is because these veterans are of the “perception” that this pet dog is a “support pet dog” and even it just isn’t performing for them, they get to the point of no return. That is the point of “absolutely very little” will function for for them and “what’s the use” state of brain or the “scared to dwell and concerned to die” state of brain. And it is at that point wherever a Trained PTSD Company Canine will demonstrate it truly is genuine intent, and do what ever it can take to get that man or woman out of that state of brain.

My Company Canine “Annie” will do and has carried out no matter what it can take to get me again to actuality. She has licked my facial area and hands, nibbled on my ears and she is properly trained to intervened on the exact escalation of the episode. My Company Canine has carried out minor factors like lick my hands or escalate to the point of sticking her tongue in my mouth. She is “Undertaking Trained” to intervene in all cases that are associated to “my” PTSD and that is what will make a Company Canine.

And it is for these factors that persons at all levels of modern society need to learn the functions of a Undertaking Trained Company Canine, and the difference between these hugely properly trained companions and a “pet dog” donning a vest….

Mainly because if all I want is a $60 Company Canine Vest or a Faux Certification to rid me of my disability, can an individual remember to inform me wherever I can obtain this wonder you communicate about? I wish my ailment would be that effortless to take care of because there is no glamour in dwelling your lifetime on the conclusion of a pet dog leash.

Thank you,
Les R. Landry

  2. Hi Les, Wonderful video. Annie is so very good at her job, you must be so proud of her. I am wondering if you could provide guidance or point me at resources to performing this kind of training? I also suffer from PTSD, from violent events and abuse as a child, and aggravated by military service. Events this year have really started to cause more anxiety, agitation, depression, and other PTSD related symptoms to really start to come out. I was planning to get a dog soon for companionship, but have also considered a service dog to assist me. I thought training my own might be the best solution, but really don't know where to begin.

  11. Hi LesMy PTSD is also a result of severe child abuse. I am in the process of training a PTSD pup because my support system has collapsed around me.  I have trained dogs in the past and have received manuals from a PTSD retired dog trainer.  My old dog is very good with my problems but he isn't trained… he trained himself to wake me from my nightmares, but I need more help because I'm now living on my own now.  I have been checking all over for videos that will help me… I will be checking through the videos you have as I need them… Thank you so much for taking the time to post all the videos… it will help a lot

  14. Wonderful to see. My dog is a SDiT I've been training since he was a baby, and what's amazing is how he seems to intuitively know the tasks needed, even though I don't always know the names. I've had PTSD and anxiety caused by it for years, and a few years ago survived a TBI when a metal pole crashed into my skull. Even though I have my general functions and can do all my ADLs/IADLs (which some doctors have said is amazing), my short term memory is shot. My speech feels slurred, and a lot of times I forget words and get stuck mid-sentence. I occasionally stare at my name and am not sure if that's how it's spelled. But more than anything, my emotions are all over the place; something everyone told me is terrible for a dog because I have to set the calm example. But my partner is the best thing that could have happened. He helps me manage living alone and is never far; in the shower, he's on the mat guarding me; in bed, he's either in front of my bedroom door or in front of the main door, guarding me. When I'm having nightmares, he nudges me awake. He forces me to leave the house and get sunshine, and having him helps me relearn patterns and habits and reestablish routines. When I'm overwhelmed, he grounds me; when I'm upset, he does deep pressure therapy and doesn't move until he knows I'm better; when my migraines work up in the spot in my brain that dented and I get dizzy, he braces me until the world stops moving.

  15. Thanks for sharing this! I am currently have a PSDiT and was looking up DPT. This video popped up and I feel it's very beneficial. I too have an issue with ESAs and Pets being passed off as SDs. I like the education you have here on what separates them from an SD.

  16. My dog has been taught to do similar. Sadly she can't be registered as an assistance dog because she's too distracted in public

  17. watching this made me tear up, I have severe ptsd from a car accident, and I'm constantly flinching at loud noises, it's gotten so bad it's started triggering really bad charlie horses, that get so bad I'm curled up on the floor crying they hurt so bad, I've lost what friends I had due to them telling me I'm faking it, I honestly have no friends now, only one I had that supported me was my mom, and she just passed away jan 21st, so now I am completely alone, my 2 brothers don't talk to me unless they want something, younger brother is getting better but still, has gotten to the point of me just avoiding the outside if I can, I can't live like this, but am unsure on how to get a service dog, because when ptsd acts up, it triggers anxiety attacks, which then make me start dropping things due to my nerves being shot, I wish I could shut it off but can't am on 5 medications just for that alone to keep me from bouncing off the walls, I'd appreciate any help on how I would go about trying to get a service dog…..I didn't think anybody would understand what we go through..people in my area call me broken, idk what to think I am broken, a service dog would help put me back together so to speak

  21. I loved your comment about the if all i needed was a 60$ vest…at Christmas my brother goes "you know people are not out to "get you" or judge you" I looked at him and very sarcastically said "oh wow thank you you cured me and i had been watering all this time on therapy and medication that defiantly helped me thank you". I love him he's my brother and he means well but pfffft. but I did tell him if he thinks i don't need a SD I'll gladly put him on my list of people to call to come help me go to the store (he lives over an hour away) or on the list of people I can call at 3 am when I cant sleep and my suicidal idolization starts up again. My current pet is not SD material for PA so while I am waiting to find the right dog I did train him in home to do DPT but he's only reliable 70% of the time the rest of the time i have to go pick him up and move him so yeah hes so not SDM.

    She already is such a good dog, kind, and already knows to comfort me at home, but ive become almost a shut in because of my anxiety.
    i dont want some other dog for a service animal. i love my dog. Shes very smart and already knows simple comands.

    I live in Rockford IL. if you have any info on this, it would be deeply appreciated.
    Shes already saved my life a couple times. if she hadnt been here with me, i may not be here.

  25. Thank you for your videos, PTSD long with service animals etiquette the world is very uneducated about just like you say! They don't understand that NOT ALL DISABILITIES ARE VISIBLE!
    I am on my second service dog, because my first has had to retire due to himself having seizures 😢, but his protégé has been AMAZING he learned faster than my 1st because he shadowed him 100% when he could (meaning he wasn't actually being trained in the beginning to be a service animal, but on occasions where he was allowed to travel with us we took him with us making sure that it was pet friendly environments) I noticed one day my service dog didn't come to alert me I had been in the tub for too long (water cold I'm freezing and was in a dissociative state, normally prevented by my service dog )
    much to my surprise as reality is sitting in and as I'm shaking I look down to and hear his barking at me and even though I'm confused a bit I feel relief only for a second before realizing his barking isn't stopping even though I'm out of the tub, now he is pulling on my towel, I decided to follow him mainly to get TheStig my original Service Dog only to spot him seizing on the floor! My anxiety actually stays level because Chesstər (my now SD/ his protégé ) helps me stay focused on helping TheStig instead of freaking out! I never thought he would not only alert me of own issues but he knows when TheStig is going to have a seizure! I am so lucky to not only have TheStig as the great service dog he was but he left me with a gift of training Chesstər and I will always love him for that! (Left as in retired people not dead he is very much alive and doing good, he still trys to help me at home but Cheestər lets him know he can go relax, plus he is enjoying the extra attention Family has always been dying to give him. Seeing how my daughter knew she couldn't just play with him as a pet, but know she can 24/7)
    (my original SD weighed only 16 lean muscular lbs, Chesstər is even smaller at between 6 to 7lbs! so I know society thinks they are too small to preform tasks,but I assure you they are plus I'm not a very big person myself only being 5' tall so I don't need a large dog for mobility or applying pressure, so size isn't a problem to me they always can do other things to compensate!) I get irritated the most when people say " I wish I could have a Service Dog!" I hear " I wish I was disabled just like you!" Do People realize that the Service Dogs aren't on the leash ……We are!

  27. I have PTSD but I am not a vet.  My family doesn't want my service dog around them.  They have allergies and other things.  I have been told to learn to do without my dog but if I could do without her I wouldn't need a service dog.  Any thoughts?  Oh by the way no therapist where I live wants to work with the cause of my PTSD and I can't afford them.

  28. I have PTSD and my dog helps me out a lot. She comes to me when I'm having a flashback, and can tell when I'm feeling sad and can come lay next to me. When I'm having an episode various grounding techniques really help me calm down, especially physical ones, like feeling the weight of my dog rested on my lap. I've been in recovery for years and on various medications that help me, so I'm not to the point of needing an intervention during a flashback. It's best for me to just let it run its course and then when I'm back my dog helps me a lot. She even flys on airplanes with us. (:

  29. I can't stop crying while watching this. I really wish I had a dog like this to help me with my PTSD & DID.

  30. Thank you for sharing this. I'm so glad you have her. I have OCD and while I probably wouldn't qualify for a service dog, my little pug helps me out a lot.

  32. I really liked the explanation you put in the description. It was really informative, but easy enough for "non-dog people" to understand. As I guide dog puppy-raiser, I really appreciate explanations and videos like this, because I spend a lot of time explaining to people that 1) The dog I have with me is not a service dog. She is only in training and not covered under the ADA. She won't be a service dog (or in this case guide dog) until she (hopefully) completes formal training. 2) That you can't just pass off any dog as a service dog. The dogs NEED proper training to be successful and safe members of society.
    Thanks for making these informative videos!

  33. Thank you so much for sending me to this video. I agree completely with all you said in the description as well. If people don't truly understand what a service dog is, and confuse a therapy dog for a service dog, if the therapy dog stops helping they will feel at the end of options. Very well put. My dog comes home the end of next week and I have no idea how to even start the process. I've heard that many aspects of service dog training you can't start with a pup under 9 months and really just to stick with basic commands and socialization. I don't know if or how true that is. I'm not really sure where to start, can you recommend any info? Thank you sir!

  35. You and your work are both amazing!
    I have a question though… I suffer from Bipolar Disorder, often more towards the depressed side of things, and quite disassociated but prone to vocal outbursts, forgetting to eat or take medication. Would a service dog be something I should consider? In my head it seems like it could work for me but maybe I'm wrong.
