Travis Peele, USA Veteran

Travis came to paws4vets after training with another Service Dog organization. DEUCE and Travis needed additional training to learn how to better handle and mitigate Travis’ symptoms.

Travis was taught how to read DEUCE’s physical cues to mitigate his anxiety levels. This team’s previous coping mechanism involved avoiding the stress instead of learning to mitigate and control symptoms related to anxiety. DEUCE is now trained to alert Travis to anxiety through behavioral cues and compression.

This has allowed Travis to begin the process of taking steps to decrease his agoraphobia when in public. Travis experiences anger related to his PTS and anxiety. He is learning to read DEUCE’s behavior interruption signals which has increased his impulse control. Working team since 2014, Travis reports decreased anger and increased impulse control with the help of DEUCE and our training methods.
