The Escape Pod Captures the Power of Dogs to Help those with PTSD


By The Chicago Egotist / /

For National Post-Traumatic Stress Disability (PTSD) Awareness Day,  The Escape Pod was tapped by Merrick Pet Care to capture the power of service dogs as a treatment aid.
In a moving video from The Escape Pod, we follow the journey of U.S. Army Veteran Randy Dexter through the K9s For Warriors program as he is paired with his service dog, Captain. The touching story reinforces the benefits of pairing service dogs with U.S. Veterans affected by PTSD and shows how the program improved the life of Randy and his family.
You can see the work at or on the Merrick Pet Care YouTube page (
