The National Vetty Award for Suicide Prevention
Good Dogs! (07-21-2021) #6089: Carol Borden’s Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs received an enormous honor in being chosen from among numerous nonprofit organziations serving veterans (and not just animal-related services) for their succesful work in suicide prevention. Tracie and Carol talk about how dogs are trained to interrupt a mental/emotional down spiral in their person. They also talk about the definition of a true service dog, and the problem with general misunderstandings of how highly trained these dogs are in their work with their disabled person.
