Dogs can be trained to sense when you're going to have a panic attack, notice when your heart rate increases and detect spikes in cortisol and blood sugar.
Jessica also shares how she's training her own dog, Chloe, as a psychiatric service dog in this special episode sponsored by Landmark College in Putney, Vermont.
