Guardian Angels trains medical service dogs to mitigate the challenges of several disabilities including:
Service dogs help to ease social reintegration, mitigate depression, provide comfort, and more to affected veterans.
Our Service dogs assist those suffering from the symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury by aiding them in memory-related tasks and providing assistance and security in public places.
Our Service dogs are trained to detect an oncoming seizure, alert their recipient, activate a life-alert system, retrieve medication, and assist their person throughout a seizure.
Our service dogs are trained to alert a person to high or low blood sugar levels before they become dangerous.
Our service dogs are trained to act as a brace for their recipient suffering from strength or balance issues and can also be trained to assist with dropped item retrieval.
Service dogs help those affected by Military Sexual Trauma reenter the world with dignity and independence by helping them manage their symptoms.
