What’s in YOUR FUTURE?????
Service Dog Training represents therapy
in the “HERE & NOW“!!!
Traditional counseling the therapy
in the “THEN & WAS“!!!!!

Why treat PTSD as a mental health/mental illness,
and not as an OCCUPATIONAL HAZARD????
And be treated with Occupational Therapy!!!!
MIADS !!!! hmmm!!!!


 The level of Sarcasm depends upon

the other person’s level of Stupidity!!!!

Since July 2010, TADSAW has accredited 945 Service Dog Teams, including 111 Vietnam Veteran and ONE Korean War Veteran and 48 TADSAF (“Train a Dog – Save a Family” member program) Service Dog Teams.

Male :       692

Female:    253

In 2018, TADSAW has accredited 144 Service Dog Teams, (M:92/F:52) including 15 Vietnam Veteran (M:14//F:1) and 9 TADSAF Service Dog Teams!!!!

And remember those other Service Dog Organizations train one dog for $25,000 to $45,000 – just for one Veteran!!!!!  And TADSAW is still training one  Medical Alert Service Dog Team for $2,500. 


big-give-sa-photoYou, as trainers, obviously see the way our rescue dogs change, and in many cases, save lives.  As Program Director and Founder of TADSAW I am asking you to become further involved by supporting TADSAW, as the need for funding is greater now than ever before.

I invite you to please immediately post the following link to your ‘Facebook’ pages and websites so that your friends and families can make a contribution to TADSAW, INC.  This is a huge opportunity to have nationwide donor participation following TADSAW in your own backyards.

Although every Service Dog Organization is responsible for the actions of the Service Dogs evaluated, trained and accredited, it is still the after training handling by the Dog’s handler, in this case the Veteran, to maintain TADSAW’s philosophy “If you set your dog up to fail, the Dog will fail” and consequently so will the Veteran.

A Service Dog may be accredited by successfully completing the Public Access Temperament Test, but in reality the dog only goes from the status of an “in-training service dog” to a “Service Dog In-Training” for the remainder of their career. And the handler must be aware of this at all times. Having a Service Dog is a 24/7/365 commitment for Life!!!


It is still TADSAW’s commitment to using only positive reinforced training methodology in the building of the canine-human bond, so necessary in any type of working dog relationship. ‘TOGETHER YOU TRAIN TO HONE YOUR SKILLS AND BOND AS A TEAM”!!
