A dog is man’s best friend, but a service dog is much more than being just that. This 35-sec award winning Dutch commercial shows the assistance a veteran dog can offer in helping a military veteran who is coping with severe war-related trauma.
This advert has been awarded the Dutch ‘Gouden Loeki‘ (Dutch Commercial Award) for best commercial. It highlights the work and the help a service dog can do to those suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD). The ad portrays a war veteran reliving the horrors of the war and the vigilant canine who helps him calm down and cope the tribulation.
Guide Dogs for Veterans is one of the many valuable programs offered by Royal Dutch Guide Dog Foundation (KNGF Geleidehonden). The commercial is filmed in order to create awareness about the veteran dogs and recognising their support roles for war veterans.
