Behesha Doan, founder and chief trainer at Extreme K-9, a world-class dog training facility in Carbondale, Ill., is also the founder of This Able Veteran, a program that pairs specially trained dogs with veterans struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Doan -- herself a trauma survivor -- is motivated to serve veterans in part by her deep compassion for those who have endured traumatic experiences and her understanding of how dogs can help veterans recover by interrupting the cycles of PTSD.
