Review for Dogs 4 Warriors, Bowerston, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is Justin Schuh I was paired with a dog through Dogs 4 Warriors. I served 14 years in the Marine Corps. I was medically retired as a Sergeant in January of 2014 for PTSD and TBI. I deployed twice to Iraq and once to Afghanistan as a Scout Sniper.

When I returned from my last deployment from Afghanistan I noticed a change in myself I couldn't go out in public without having an anxiety attack or anger outburst. It was also happening during family events. This was effecting my family life having two children it was hard for me to go and enjoy my daughter who was 11 play sports or taking my 2 year old son anywhere because I was to worried about my surroundings. In the two weeks that I stayed at the compound of Dogs 4 Warriors and working with Sheila and my dog Sarge it is easier to go to restaurants and malls.
Having Sarge by my side is like having one of my Marines with me at all times to watch my back, when he senses my anxiety level rise he distracts me to get my mind off everything around me and focus my attention on him. What Sheila, her family and the Dogs 4 Warriors organization are doing is just amazing. I can't express how much it means to me and my family.

Thank you for everything you are doing.
