What service dogs do when it is too cold and early...

to get out of bed. Duly noted, Fiyero now resides with SSG Raymond, who has Guard this weekend. She was out of bed at 0500. Fi wasn't. Not even close.

We're in The Iowan!

If you're heading to the grocery or book store, check out the November/December 2010 issue of The Iowan. We are featured in a two page spread titled Canine Confidence that features the literacy program in which our therapy dog teams participate. It is another fantastic story.

If you'd prefer, feel free to email me and I can send you a .pdf!

"We Serve with Honor" PSAs teaser.

Paws & Effect has embarked on a mission to deploy service dogs to Iowa Veterans.

To kick off this venture we brought in 7 special operations officers - otherwise known as service puppies in training - who will be raised and trained by puppy raisers around the state.

This video teaser are some of the behind the scenes images and video from our four days of filming. Stay tuned to local channels near you for the final public service announcements to launch very soon.

Congratulations Paws & Effect!

We'd kept the fact that we applied to become a Delta Society Affiliate under wraps because we didn't want to jinx the outcome. Consider this a rather significant, long awaited, very exciting announcement:

Paws & Effect is a Delta Society Affiliate Program

To say that we're proud of the designation is an understatement. To be recognized as one of the few programs that are of the quality and consistency necessary to receive this honor is just that: an honor.

I hope this brings as big a sense of satisfaction to you as it has me.
