The founders of Do Unto Others (D.U.O.) Assistance Dogs have committed to the following attributes that are an essential part of everything we do:

TEAMWORK - as an Executive Team we feel we are all “stronger together”, and pledge to work together with our Board of Directors, volunteers, and clients to achieve success.

INTEGRITY - we pledge to be transparent and scrupulous in adherence to best practices in business, breeding and training.

PASSION - everyone involved in D.U.O. needs a heart for serving others; we love what we’re called to do and hope that joy will be evident in everything we do.

PROFESSIONALISM - a part of the fabric of our organization is our commitment to seeking out professional certifications and affiliations; continuing education at every level; and continuous process improvement.

INTENTIONALITY - We want to be sure we know where we want to go and how to get there.  This intentionality will necessitate long range planning including our Board of Directors, our Executive Team, our volunteers, our clients, and community partners.

TRAINING - We commit to training our dogs using Least Intrusive Minimally Aversive (LIMA) behavior intervention policies - the current industry gold standard.  We believe that good training begins at the top of the leash, so our trainers and volunteers will also be involved in regular honing of our skills.

About D.U.O.

Do Unto Others (D.U.O.) Assistance Dogs was founded by a dedicated team with over 30 years of combined experience in raising service dogs. The organization was launched with the vision of serving individuals with disabilities such as mobility issues, PTSD, and Autism Spectrum Disorder.

The mission of D.U.O. is to train dogs to serve the specific needs of their human partners. They are committed to values such as teamwork, integrity, passion, professionalism, intentionality, and high-standard training methods. These principles guide their efforts to empower individuals with disabilities, enhancing their independence and quality of life through the support of well-trained service dogs​

The team includes former educators and experienced dog trainers who came together to create a non-profit that could provide highly trained assistance dogs to those in need.
