Description

The 'Train a Dog - Save a Warrior' (TADSAW) philosophy is "Together you train to hone your skills and Bond as a Team".

The Veteran and their Service Dog candidate work together from start to finish with a Dog Trainer to accomplish the mission. The military's rationale of " PLAN - PREPARE and ENGAGE, during the years of service, is useful because it allows the Veteran to successfully accomplish and complete the mission of being part of the Medical Alert Service Dog Team.
