"He lowers my anxiety. He gets me out of the house," says Dwayne Sawyer of his service dog, a golden Labrador named Rex who has been helping the 22-year veteran with his PTSD. Rex sits at Sawyer's feet as shoppers walk by. "I have to look after him, which makes me have to get up and do stuff. Prior to that, I wasn't getting out of bed. And if we're in a mall situation and he can feel my anxiety, he gets really cuddly and he gets right up into me." Yet the answer to one big question is still being worked on: What, precisely, qualifies as a psychiatric service dog? The idea of using service dogs to treat and support veterans and others suffering from PTSD has been around for a few years, but was largely disregarded by the federal government until May 2014. That is when then-veterans affairs minister Julian Fantino pledged up to $500,000 for a two-and-a-half year study to assess the benefits -- and risks -- of such dogs, with an eye to whether their use should be encouraged and expanded. Documents obtained by The Canadian Press show the study was delayed because of "recruitment and retention issues of both trained psychiatric service dogs and veterans," but a preliminary report was recently published. The findings: Three months after they were obtained, service dogs were found to have "some positive effects" on veterans' ability to sleep as well as to manage their PTSD and depression.
