Collection: Psychiatric Service Dogs

WHAT IS A PSYCHIATRIC SERVICE DOG (PSD): 

A psychiatric service dog (PSD) is a type of assistance animal that’s trained to perform specific tasks for individuals living with a mental illness. These unique tasks are directly related to the handler’s disability.

Most of us are accustomed to seeing guide dogs supporting those with physical disabilities like a hearing or sight impairment. However, a psychiatric service dog helps people with typically unseen, unnoticeable disabilities.

For example, veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) who experience panic attacks or anxiety can often benefit from the service of a PSD.

The rights of patients who are diagnosed with a qualifying disability and who are entitled to a PSD is protected under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA).
