“I was diagnosed with PTSD years ago, but my symptoms were minimal. Fast forward a few years and my symptoms increased. I was having flashbacks 5-6 times a day, taking medication, seeing a psychologist weekly and a psychiatrist monthly. Then I heard about Soldier’s Best Friend. I started training with my dog Axle and we progressed quickly through the program. I’m not sure how it happened, but my symptoms significantly decreased. My flashbacks reduced to 2-3 times a week. I am no longer on medication. My psychiatrist told me we no longer need to meet monthly, once every six months will suffice. Furthermore, I no longer see my psychologist on a regular schedule. I am so happy to have been a part of Soldier’s Best Friend and Axle truly is my best friend.” Fred & Axle
