Dogs are man’s best friend. VITA assistance dogs are even more than that: they are partners for (canine) life. Whether it’s emptying the washing machine or helping with social contacts – they assist wherever they can. And they do so unconditionally. At REHACARE.de, Dr. Ariane Volpert, veterinarian and vice chairperson of VITA e.V. Assistenzhunde, talks about the superior dog training and the stories behind it all.
Not all disabilities are visible. Especially psychological disabilities are often being suppressed or not viewed as such. It is still widely unknown that an assistance dog can help with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or other psychological disabilities for example.
