About Psychiatric Service Dogs

Who They Help

Psychiatric disabilities can affect anyone from any walk of life. Sometimes they are the result of brain chemistry, other times a result of physical or emotional trauma – or a combination of both. These disabilities can present themselves as anxiety, OCD behaviors, confusion, dissociation, depression, isolation, self-harm, paranoia, and countless others.  

What They Do

Our psychiatric service dogs:

  • Interrupt panic and anxiety attacks
  • Retrieve important objects like medicine
  • Provide deep pressure therapy to help their person stay grounded in reality and relieve anxiety
  • Blocking
  • Getting help when needed
  • …and many other tasks
In Training

Mallard

Mallard is finishing up his training and has already been placed with his person!

Jovial and energetic, Mallard is always checking out his environment. This makes him a great psychiatric service dog because he always knows what’s what within his surroundings so that his person will know things are stable and safe. He’s naturally affectionate, which also makes him excellent at checking in with his person to interrupt panic attacks or dissociative episodes.

Learn About the Dogs

Zen and Joe

Zen is originally from Hillsborough County Animal Services in Florida. After training him as a service dog, we Zen paired with his handler, former marine Joe. Zen attends school with Joe. With Zen by his side, Joe is confident and independent and can fully enjoy normal, everyday life.

Pepe and Carolyn

Pepe interrupts Carolyn’s panic episodes by pushing at her hands or getting in her face. He makes sure she feels safe by letting her know if someone is close by. He’s also working on alerting her to her alarm. He has to be persistent because her meds lower her blood pressure.
