Certified Service Dogs for America’s Heroes
Hounds for Heroes is a 501(c)(3) service dog training program that pairs a certified service dog with a Service Member diagnosed with PTSD.
How the Hounds Help America's Heroes
The Hound will be able to recognize and respond to the Hero’s emotional state. Thus, getting the Hero out of the state completely, shortening the time in the state, or diverting focus to the Hound forcing the Hero to respond to the Hound.
The Hound will engage with different actions based on the recognition of various emotions and actions from the Hero. The dog will be able to detect and alert the Service Member similar to a seizure dog, but for PTSD.
Why America's Heroes Need Help
America’s Armed Forces community has one of the highest suicide rates among any demographic. Since 9/11, the percentage of service members who have committed suicide has quadrupled.
According to the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs, 10-20% of America’s service men and women who saw action in any of the USA’s conflicts in the past 50 years have suffered symptoms of PTSD.
