Mission Statement

To provide for the training of a Medical Alert Service Dog, as designated by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 2010 guidelines, for ANY wounded warrior, Active Duty or Veteran, surviving with Military Induced Anxiety Depressions Syndrome (MIADS), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Military Sexual Trauma (MST) and/or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), in order to restore and improve the Warrior’s Quality of Life with a canine 'Battle Buddy’, at no charge to the Warrior ro the family, and the difference made to the family, the neighborhood and the community


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.

From July 2010 thru October 22 nd 2020, TADSAW, INC. has accredited 1,172 Medical Alert Service Dog Teams (M:848//F:324) including 138 Vietnam War Veteran (M:127//F:11), TWO Korean War Veteran and 59 TADSAF (Train a Dog - Save a Family) Service Dog Teams throughout the United States. TADSAW is responsible for preventing over 1,170+ Veteran suicides!!!

TADSAW is the leader of Service Dog Providers in the area of Diversity, striving to mirror the demographics of Our Military and Veteran populations with disabilities. 27% of Our Teams are Female Veterans. 25% of Our Teams are Minorities, having accredited 299 Service Dog Teams throughout their communities, represented by 153 Hispanic-Latina (M:95//F:58)and 107 African-American (M:44//F:63) and 39 otherEthnicities (M:24//F:15).
