“Hi Steve,

I’m a former Victoria Police officer who has started a dog training/ well-being business, Melanie Scott K9 Training. Based in Werribee, I offer First Responder only group dog training classes, focusing on those current and ex-serving members suffering PTSD. I also offer in home services to both metro Melbourne and regional Victoria, including tailored PTSD Service and Therapy dog training programmes. Dogs bring people together, provide unconditional love, loyalty, promote exercise and social interaction and I’m using these benefits to help those with PTSD. I’m looking at increase the knowledge of my business within the ambulance community. Are you interested in a story related to my business?
