Episode Description

Two of the biggest problems in the service dog training business are the scam of registering your dog as a service dog and passing a dog off as a service dog. There are scam companies that will register your dog for a price, and scam people who claim their dogs are service dogs

VSCOA PAWS Service & Companion Dog Training Program is fundamentally transforming how we serve our disabled veterans and Wounded Warriors who have become homeless at Camp Royal Oak. Veterans who come to Camp Royal Oak are now offered several opportunities that can result in them receiving pre-vocational skills, a career path and or a way to serve their fellow brother and sister veterans. In addition all dogs in our programs are rescue dogs. VSCOA PAWS Service & Companion Dog Training Program offers two very different Service Dog Training programs that a veteran can get involved with while staying at Camp Royal Oak. “Train a Trainer” or “TAT” is a Therapeutic Vocational Education & Training Program that the VSCOA PAWS Program offers to the disabled veterans and Wounded Warriors we serve at Camp Royal Oak. This unique first of its kind program offers qualified veterans staying at Camp Royal Oak the opportunity to obtain pre-vocational skills that could help lead a veteran to become a fully certified Companion- Service Dog Trainer or more. Veterans that enroll for the “TAT” program are taught to train Companion- Service Dogs for disabled heroes such as Combat Veterans and First Responders that suffer with PTSD and or Traumatic Brain Injuries known as TBI’s.
