The K9 PTSD Center is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to fostering research, publication, and education regarding post-traumatic stress disorder in canines. Though the symptoms differ between humans and dogs, we've seen firsthand how K9s who detect explosives, chase down and restrain human threats, and otherwise operate in the line of duty can suffer from extreme, debilitating anxiety. Whether they served law enforcement or have returned home from overseas combat, our four-legged veterans deserve to be treated with dignity and compassion and to get the help they need to recover. Yet, there has been little recent research on diagnosing and treating canine PTSD, and little help for these K9s. The K9 PTSD Center is determined to change this by promoting research in this area and widely distributing the most accurate and latest information through publication and education.
