Koz, my Service Dog [ trained by Canine Companions ] and I meet with Veteran’s Groups, Schools, Rotary Clubs, Law Enforcement and individuals looking for more information regarding Service Dogs.
Why do you do it?
My combat experience brought PTSD into my life after I retired in a dramatic and troublesome way. With the help of my wife and family, along with the tremendous support from Canine Companions I was connected with Koz almost two years ago. Koz has made a positive contribution to my life in so many ways and I felt compelled to share my experience with others, especially fellow Veteran’s.
