I am an active duty Soldier stationed in Germany at the Warrior Transition Unit. I have been diagnosed with severe PTSD, and my behavioral health team believes I could benefit from a "companion dog". I had to look it up to even know what that was. I understand you recently ended a program for Soldiers that provided them with companion dogs. I would like to adopt a dog, but most of the programs I've seen available require the owner and dog to be in an intensive training program for several months. We have nothing like that here. Do you know of any programs that would allow me to train the dog on my own, or can you refer me to anything that may help? Thank you for your time.
