NSD is proud to partner with the WWC PTSD Service Dog program. Together we are dramatically impacting the lives of Canadian Veterans and First Responders.
Since 2012, Wounded Warriors Canada (WWC) has made significant investments, as a leading funder of PTSD Service Dogs. The preliminary results of the Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) funded efficacy study has reinforced and provided early clinical evidence which we know to be imperially true: Properly trained PTSD Service Dogs can and do change and save lives.
In 2018 NSD Onix was matched with Dan. Onix is very attentive to Dan and is always ready to give him a supportive “nudge” to help him stay focused on the positive and to keep him grounded. Dan has started to re-engage in activities of daily living and has started going to hockey games with his son.
Sean and NSD Neville were also matched in 2018 and Neville has travelled numerous times with Sean, helping him stay grounded on crowded planes and transition into dynamic environments. Click here for their story.
Together we are empowering Canadians to reach their full potential!
