PTSD service dogs are becoming increasingly popular for military veterans with PTSD. But what exactly do they do, and are they effective at treating PTSD? Dr. Rodriguez will discuss her research in this field, discussing current findings on how PTSD service dogs benefit military veterans and their families and future directions for research.

This seminar is hosted by the University of Nebraska Human-Animal Interaction Initiative and is sponsored by a University of Nebraska Collaboration Initiative grant and the Canine Cognition and Human Interaction Lab.
