‘Dogs Of War:’ New A&E Reality Show Spotlights Service Dogs For Combat Veterans With PTSD

In light of Veteran’s Day, we wanted to share a very special reality show with our readers.

In a culture where most reality TV programming is full of bad word, drama and sometimes even violence, Dogs of War is a refreshing take on what reality actually is for many people.

We get to meet combat veteran Jim Stanek, who returns home struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He decided to look into getting a service dog help him heal but he finds that the cost of the dogs are extremely expensive and the wait to be paired with one was very long. As a solution, Stanek established his own nonprofit organization to rescue dogs from kill shelters, train them as service dogs and partner them with other struggling veterans at little to no cost.
