This guide dog commercial lets us know that guide dogs are helpful for others than just the blind. With the commercial, a soldier on a battlefield is snapped out of his nightmare by his guide dog licking his face. With guide dogs traditionally being used to help the blind, we don't see them as being useful for any other purpose. The Royal Dutch Guide Dog Foundation put its focus on the ulterior functions of its guide dogs.

Many men and women return home from war-torn countries and face post-traumatic stress disorder. With some of the symptoms being restless sleep, these guide dogs are perfect for those who relive battles while asleep. It also helps when you wake up from a nightmare to have someone there to comfort you and help you feel better.
