Since her time in the Army as a K9 handler, Mary Cortani has understood how our four-legged friends have healing benefits. She founded the organization Operation Freedom Paws - a non-profit that empowers veterans and individuals with disabilities to restore their freedom to live life through a special therapeutic canine-human relationship. In this episode, Dr. Springer and Mary talk about the therapeutic benefits of canines for many different types of trauma survivors and how Operation Freedom Paws has incorporated Stella’s innovative SGB treatment into their programming.
