Canine Therapy for First Responders

At Canine Therapy for First Responders (CTFFR Atlantic), our mission is to provide certified Service and Facility dogs the First Responder/Veteran community with the resources and support they need to cope with the struggles of their occupational illness. We offer specially trained Service/Facility dogs to help first responders with mental health and any physical challenges they may experience. These dogs are physical aids that are trained and educated to assist their handler during a time of need. Whether it be a trigger warning, or picking up your keys, A dogs can be taught upward of 200 tasks to assist their handler at anytime.
