This Able Veteran

This Able Veteran is a 501(c)3 organization that trains PTSD service dogs and provides a three week Trauma Resiliency Program to US military veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of their service. Our program is proven to help veterans cope successfully with the symptoms of PTSD, including depression, nightmares and social anxiety. Our intensive Trauma Resiliency Program incorporates service dogs trained for our unique anxiety alert and nightmare interruption aids. We are also training trainers – our PTSD Service Dog Trainer Academy will help put more specially trained service dogs into partnership with veterans suffering from PTSD.
