Dogs help humans overcome psychological trauma

Although we often see how helpful and efficient dogs can be in caring for people who have physical or intellectual disabilities (such as the visually impaired or those with Down syndrome), the loving and companion side of animals has not yet been explored. as deeply as now.

Defending the use of dogs as support tools in the overcoming major traumas, the Dutch foundation Royal Dutch Guide Dog Foundation (KNGF) has helped war soldiers with post-traumatic stress to adapt better to the new reality - outside the combat environment - by offering trained dogs that help them in times of crisis.

As shown in the commercial created by the foundation to publicize the service (check at the end of the article), dogs have the ability to take veterans out of nightmares caused by trauma, noticing when there is atypical behavior in the person and waking them up. In addition, whoever has a dog as part of the family already knows of another aspect in which these animals can help people to recover after crisis situations: with much love and affection.

Highlighting the slogan β€œWe not only help people who cannot see, but also those who have seen too much”(In the translationβ€œWe don't just help people who can't see, but also people who have seen too much”), The Royal Dutch Guide Dog Foundation, fortunately, should be a great ally for many veterans in these conditions.
