Service Dog Helps owner with PTSD/Depression get out of bed. This is Raphael, my boyfriend's psychiatric service dog, who helps him get up and out of bed every day, or even just stays in bed with him on those days when he just can't-because Raph understands that sometimes with depression you just can't, and that's okay too.
When we go out in public you'll see Raph wearing his little service vest, and when we put it on we always tell him it's work time. The transformation is immediate - from high-energy playful puppy dog to calm and steady professional. But as you can see, Raph knows that love is never off the clock, and helping Dad get out of bed every day is just one of many tasks he performs for him at home, both trained and untrained.
