Details: Welcome to the 3rd annual Service for Service: Washington Goes to the Dogs. This event will focus the use of Service Dogs with combat veterans suffering with the invisible wounds of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Military Sexual Trauma. This event is free to the public and lunch is provided. Registration is open to anyone and we will be targeting businesses with public access, organizations who work with training dogs for the above mentioned areas, anyone interested in receiving services from a dog, and veterans and their family members.
Objectives: The focus this year is on how all dogs serve veterans (and others with disabilities). In addition to presenting on Service Dogs, we will also have presentations on Emotional Support Dogs, Therapy Dogs, and even Dogs of War such as bomb sniffing dogs.
We can use your help at the conference with Set up and Exhibitors, Registration, Time Keepers, Q&A Mics, Tear Down, Rovers. To volunteer, click here
