Eight Veterans experiencing PTSD have been formally partnered with their RSB Assistance Dogs. Warmest congratulations to our eight OPK9 teams on their graduation.

This matching process is where the skills, experience and teamwork that is at the heart of the RSB Guide and Assistance Dog Service really does its job. Matching an RSB Assistance Dog with a Veteran is a carefully curated process, one involving the veteran, their family, various medical and other allied health professionals, our expert training and instruction staff and of course our wonderful dogs.

Wishing our 2020-21 teams much independence and adventure.
