To improve the lives of dogs, their owners, and society through humane education, positive training, and community involvement.
Dog Scouts of America Vision
We envision a future where dogs remain in happy, lifelong homes with responsible owners. In this vision, all dogs are seen as a useful and welcome part of the community, because people take responsibility for socializing, training, containing, and caring for them. We strive to create a world where people view their dogs as part of their family and all dog owners have the knowledge they need to raise well-mannered canine citizens.
What DSA Stands For
We stand for responsibility – to the dogs in our care, to our communities, and to each other.
We believe that our members make a difference by setting an example, developing skills and embracing opportunities to share our philosophy with each other and inspire people to join us.
In Dog Scouts, people help dogs, dogs help people, and the whole community benefits.
