No other pet in the world can probably match the unconditional love bestowed by a dog to the owner. Uncountable instances of dogs coming to the rescue of their human companions clearly prove this fact. Millions of dog owners around the world would happily testify how is it because of their pet they retained emotional strength even in the most difficult times. In fact, there have been many stories of dogs laying down their lives to save their master’s! The great honor of being Man’s Best Friend is only worthy of the Dog! These days, even medical science recognizes the immense emotional support that comes from a pet, especially a dog.
Comfort in loneliness
Numerous army veterans would testify that it may be only for their dog that they have stopped themselves from blowing their heads! The acute depression of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can be so painful that suicide seems like an easy option. Stories of war cannot be shared with the world either as it involves too many complex layers. In this harrowing loneliness, your emotional support dog provides the valuable companionship of a non-judgmental friend. The comfort is priceless in the sense that you can share your stories of pain to a listener who understands every bit, but does not respond as another person would. Besides PTSD victims, the ESA is an invaluable companion in any kind of mental and emotional disturbance.
Always by your side
Nervous disorders tend to make one shaky. In fact, you may even begin to fear the slightest sound of someone talking random stuff within your audible range. Getting on the road might appear like a nightmare with an overwhelming dread of being run over by a speeding vehicle. The presence of your dog provides an amazing sense of security. A strong dog is very protective and is very good at it. However, ensuring that your dog is always by your side may pose certain legal issues. Sometimes, landlords do not allow pets; flights do not usually allow animals. Obtaining a legal ESA (Emotional Support Animal) certificate from a registered medical practitioner resolves this issue easily.
A Guide of Recovery
The pet of a depressed man (or woman) is more than just being a listening friend. Put it fairly, it may be quite impossible for an emotionally disturbed person to live without their dogs leading them on the road of recovery. The dog would steadily lead you to your destination and guard you along the road simply by offering its unconditional loyalty. One can never ever repay this sort of invaluable loyalty. The best you can do is to make sure that the dog has all the legal authorities to stay in your assistance.
The legal procedure involves obtaining a signed letterhead document from a certified medical professional. The doctor would state your medical condition and the recognized therapeutic value of having your Emotional Support Dog always by your side. Several legal provisions exist which guarantees this support, but you must proceed in the right protocol to benefit from them. The Air Carrier Access Act and Fair Housing Act are two key policies for this. Contact a competent service to guide you through the process.
