Educating members of the public and legal professionals about the benefits of facility dogs
Guiding governmental agencies (prosecutor offices and law enforcement agencies) and nonprofit organizations (child advocacy centers and victim advocacy groups) in program development using a best practices model
Supporting nonprofit service dog organizations that train and place facility dogs
Encouraging and facilitating scientific research on the use of facility dogs
