In 1996 CHC trained its first Psychiatric service dog for a vietnam veteran
whom suffered from PTSD. He did not want to leave the house.
After his dog became certified in the public he was able to go places.
It was amazing to watch through the years how the dog
helped heal him of his phobias.
In 2002 CHC expanded to Fairton Federal Prison by providing dogs in the program
to be trained as service dogs. The program is very succesful training 4 dogs at a time.
It has made a difference in the lives of the inmates, changing thier views on life and
learning the joy of giving back to help others.
In 2002 CHC found the dogs that did not qualify to be hearing dogs learned to be
Medic Alert dogs helping to alert a person before they would have a seizure, diabetic
or angina attack.
