TESTIMONY BY MATT & PTSD SERVICE DOG MONTY
Team Sponsor: Wounded Warriors Canada
My PTSD crippled me in terms of being a productive member of society. I was basement-bound for two years before I was paired with Monty in early 2018, and he has changed my life unbelievably since then.
I can now go to the pharmacy for my medications (I previously had to get them delivered) and I can also get groceries with Monty by my side. He has given me the mobility and confidence to be out in public.
Shortly after we were certified on February 7th, we flew to Ontario for two weeks to visit my family. Monty probably saved my life at this time, as I was feeling pretty low as a result of my limited contact with my kids.
He is such an intuitive best friend. He knows when I’m having difficulties and helps me tremendously.
