This is Not Just a School for Service Dogs...

We train people! Our 18 month program is more than obedience school. As our admitted student, we will guide you through a comprehensive education including learning theory, dog development, care and management, applied training skills and drills, and customized service dog tasking based on your specific medical needs.

Peggy Moran's School for Dogs, LLC has partnered with AVSDA to offer the highest level of training and educational support to Veterans diagnosed with PTSD who have been prescribed a service dog. 

Thank You for Supporting Our Veterans!

According to the Veterans Administration, currently an average of 20 Veterans commit suicide everyday in the United States.  AVSDA's mission is to bring this number down using the proven, positive effects of service dogs.
