My name is Georgia, I am 23yo and am struggling with PTSD, anxiety, depression, eating disorder issues and self-harm. I am training Koda to be my psychiatric assistance dog. She will be trained to do tasks such as - - - Interrupt Harmful Behaviors- Interrupt Panic/Anxiety Attack - Dogs sense when owners have panic attacks and will push, paw bark to alert and then will often lie on the owner for deep pressure therapy- Interrupt Scratching/Skin Picking- Nightmare Interruption- Provide Distraction - Diverting their owner's attention to the dog, a technique known as ''anchoring'', helping to bring their owner back to the present moment- Deep pressure touch - Tactile stimulation of petting their dog or being nuzzled can help them to reorient during a dissociative episode or panic attack.This page has been created to help fund her training which can cost upwards of $20,000. But she is worth every penny as assistance dogs save lives.
