Military Service dogs
Increasing numbers of Canadian soldiers are coming home from over seas suffering from the worst trauma they will ever experience in their life. The learned behaviours that have allowed them to survive in such hostile environments have become engrained into their everyday responses to civilian stresses, making adapting to noncombatant life, yet another challenge.
XSK9 is a non-profit organization that provides service dogs to veterans with combat related PTSD. Our organization is a volunteer based non-profit that works to train rescue dogs and match them with Canadian veterans suffering from combat related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
