Dogs Types We Train

While PTSD Dogs Australia concentrates on training and supplying PTSD Service Dogs (also known as Assistance Dogs), sometimes the dogs do not meet the high standards required by the program but it is not the end for the dogs. Because we have been very selective in choosing suitable dogs for our program, we end up with very well trained dogs that can meet needs other than as a fully qualified Service Dog.

There are basically 3 categories that our dogs can fall into;

  1. Assistance Dogs
  2. Therapy Dogs
  3. Companion Dogs

We do not charge our Veterans and First Responders for Assistance dogs however we do welcome any help an applicant may be able to give to help raise funding. Therapy dog applications are assessed on an individual basis and may have fees associated.
