What is PTSD?
Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that can occur after you have been through a traumatic event. During this type of event, you think that your life or other's lives are in danger. You may feel afraid or feel that you have no control over what is happening.
Anyone who has gone through a life-threatening event can develop PTSD. These events can include:
1.) Combat or Military Exposure
2.) Child sexual or physical abuse
3.) Terrorist attacks
4.) Sexual or physical assault
5.) Serious accidents, such as a car wreck
6.) Natural disasters, such as a fire, tornado hurricane, flood, or earthquake
After the event, you may feel scared, confused, or angry. If these feelings don't go away or they get worse, you may have PTSD. These symptoms may disrupt your life, making it hard to continue with your daily activities.

PTSD Service Dog Training:
Euro Pros K-9 Center can create customized training programs for PTSD Service Dogs to help those who are suffering and living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
PTSD Dogs are trained to:
1.) Assistance in a medical crisis
2.) Provide treatment related assistance
3.) Assistance in coping with emotional overload
4.) Perform security enhancement tasks
A Specially Trained PTSD Dog can provide a sense of security, calming effects, and physical exercise that can make a positive difference in the life of those that suffer with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Like all assistance dogs, a psychiatric service dog is individually trained to do work or perform tasks that mitigate their handler's disability. Training may include providing environmental assessment (in such cases as paranoia or hallucinations), signaling behaviors (such as interrupting repetitive or injurious behavior reminding the handler to take medication, retrieving objects and guiding the handler from stressful situations. PTSD Service Dogs can literally change the life of a Veteran or other person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD Service dogs can help a Veteran remain calm by preventing people from crowding around or rushing up behind in public places which will provide a comfortable space for the Veteran or PTSD sufferer.
PTSD Service Dogs can:
A.) Help adjust serotonin levels
B.) Help lower blood pressure
C.) Help with episodes of depression
D.) Provide companionship
E.) Calm their handler
F.) Preventing people from crowding around or rushing up on their handler
First Things First . . .
The first thing we start working on is to have a calmer dog that listens better and is not reactive to all of the environmental stimulants around your home, and in his world. By starting in that manor, we are better able train your dog on the obedience commands you need. We, at Euro Pros, look at dog training as a lifestyle and not a series of tricks, our training and rehab program becomes part of your lifestyle, as it does for your dog.
As far as obedience, we work on the following with your dog:
Walking properly on a leash without pulling, barking, lunging, sniffing, or reacting to dogs and/or distractions
Correcting bad behaviors – jumping up on people, jumping on countertops, mouthing, nipping, chasing, playing keep-away
Recall training (with, and without distractions)
Separation Anxiety (some separation issues need a longer program)
Crate Nonsense (barking, whining, etc.)
Heeling properly on leash and eliminating leash reactivity (some intense leash reactivity needs a longer program)
Building confidence with your dog so you get a better and well mannered dog.
Calm on Command training – having your dog be calm in all situations, without him/her having to be worn out with hours of walking/play time
Leadership skills with your dog so your dog understands proper pack order with humans, eliminating a lot of pushy behavior dogs have. This is also great for nervous fearful dogs.
Work with your dog on the anxiety and fear that is driving most unwanted behaviors
