Psychiatric service dog

Man's best friend gives us many joys. But as a psychiatric service dog, dogs can actually do some absolutely invaluable things for people with mental challenges as well. As a close and faithful companion, the dog helps them get through everyday life and gives them peace of mind wherever they move together.

Om arrangementet

Most people probably know the term 'service dog', and perhaps most associate it with a dog that assists a physically disabled person. A psychiatric service dog helps and assists a mentally vulnerable person who has a psychiatric diagnosis. It does this by reading its owner's mental state, warning of incipient seizures or episodes and helping him / her through them.


The psychiatric service dog supports people with such disorders and provides mental support in the home and when its owner moves out into the community. If the owner has a psychiatric diagnosis such as anxiety, it can be difficult to make an everyday life stick together.


The psychiatric service dog supports the owner with daily activities so that the owner is able to:

  • Get up in the morning
  • Go outside
  • Attend necessary treatments or medical check-ups
  • Be social and enter into social relationships with other people
  • Maintain his / her job or complete an education


Dog behavior therapist and trainer Trine Bargmann from the association Trinitas talks about psychiatric service dogs. She will also present the association's purpose and provide examples of its results. Efforts will be made to involve a user of psychiatric service dogs.


Trine also gets into therapy dogs that are trained to be able to help their owner help mentally vulnerable people. It can be as an icebreaker with a psychologist, as a mascot in a daycare center, as a school dog among autistic children, or as a support dog for a caseworker.



You will gain insight into what a psychiatric service dog is and how they help people with mental challenges to get through everyday life. In addition, you will get to know the association Trinitas and its work.



Trine Bargmann is a trained dog behavior therapist and trainer, and has worked with training of psychiatric service dogs for almost 6 years. She is also a coordinator at the association Trinitas, which aims to make Danish society recognize the value of dogs with social, educational and therapeutic purposes.
