“When I transitioned out of the Army I didn’t feel like I had a purpose or direction, coupled with pretty heavy anxiety and depression that went on for years despite traditional therapy and a plethora of medications. Everything fell into place after I got Q and I really didn’t realize that he was the catalyst for it right away; everything snowballed from there. A second chance, it really is, and an incredible gift I’ll be grateful for the rest of my life. It’s a rebirth almost, but different because you are getting back to who you wanted to be yet you see everything through fresh, new eyes. Thank you to the entire team of K9s on The Front Line for giving me my life back, thank you for giving me my future, thank you for giving me my family back.”
“I lost a lot of friends in Viet Nam and it was [Tet] 68. It’ll be 50 years in Feb 2018. My biggest trigger is getting behind a diesel truck. It takes me back, I have found it makes a difference with Seven. He knows that if I get behind a diesel truck it bothers me, so he starts barking at me to distract me from my thoughts. I can honestly say that PTSD doesn’t go away entirely, but the team at K9s on The Front Line definitely understands it and they have been the biggest help I have had with it. Thank you K9s on the Front Line, best thing to happen in my life.
