It’s great see how sensitive dogs are to the feeling and needs of human beings, but it never occurred to me that dogs could do this. These guide dogs assist war veterans. They were specially trained to identify when their owners are having disturbing flashbacks or nightmares and they have learned to wake them up at the right moment.
This video shows the assistance a veteran dog can offer in helping a military veteran who is coping with severe war related trauma.
Dogs are such amazing creatures, I guess it’s true what they say, angels walk on four legs.
