Location Salida, California

Description

Kona is an owner trained Psychiatric Service Dog who has made day to day life possible for myself (Kelsey) a full time college student living on her own.

I would not leave my house without her. Kona has successfully stopped two suicide attempts and assisted through countless flashback episodes.

I suffer from non military PTSD and mood disorders NOS.

Kona is trained to perform medical alert and response, blocking, disrupting destructive behaviors, deep pressure therapy, medication reminders and many many more!

The picture is of Kona providing deep pressure therapy and trying to cool my panic attack.

I love Kona and hope you like her too because she makes me feel like I'm not alone in the battle against my psyhiatric disability.
