Award-Winning Video Shows How A Service Dog Can Help A War Veteran

‘We not only help people who cannot see, but also those who have seen too much.’

This short video from The Royal Dutch Guide Dog Foundation was the winner of the Gouden Loeki 2014 (Dutch commercial award) and for good reason. The commercial does a masterful job of showing the assistance a service dog can offer a war veteran who is coping with severe war related trauma.

It begins with a soldier in the middle of battle witnessing the pain and suffering war inflicts on everyone involved. Just when it all gets to be too much for him to take, the video ends in a way that’s sure to make you smile.
