Paws for Purple Hearts is transforming the way Veterans with PTSD and TBI receive relief from symptoms with our unique Canine-Assisted Warrior TherapyTM and training approaches. Warriors Helping Warriors! Paws for Purple Hearts has completed two years of a four year study working with the National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, which is already validating our approach. Paws for Purple Hearts is the world’s only service dog organization for wounded service members and veterans that partners with Bergin University of Canine Studies. Bergin provides all Paws for Purple Hearts service dogs and trainers. Founded and led by the famous canine researcher and inventor of the service dog concept, Dr. Bonnie Bergin, Bergin University is the first and only university in the world that focuses on training dogs and learning about dogs. Through its unique mission to advance human-canine studies, it produces the world’s best dog trainers and helps us breed the highest quality service dogs in the world. Although Paws for Purple Hearts is now separate from Bergin University, it’s a cause that is near and dear to Dr. Bergin. Today, she still actively engaged with Paws for Purple Hearts as board member.
