Welcome to PTSDog

PTSDog: Post Traumatic Stress disorder and the service Dog is a book about Service Dogs, Disabled Veterans, PTSD, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.  Author Joaquin Juatai is writing PTSDog as the go-to resource for people who need to understand the law, understand how Service Dogs work, or just want to read the stories of the Disabled Veterans who use them. Through interviews and photos with other PTSDog handlers, Juatai is painting a picture of the challenges these handlers face in their day-to-day lives, and how their dogs provide effective support to help enable them to overcome their disabilities.

The book

PTSDog is in the process of being written. Skeeter and I are traveling throughout the country to interview and photograph dog/handler teams, and to get stories about their experiences as they go through life working with their PTSDogs.
