Vision & Values

NEADS WILL...

  • ensure the continued fulfillment of our mission by tirelessly increasing our number of client-dog teams, improving the efficiency of our training processes, cultivating current and new revenue sources, implementing rigorous financial controls and nourishing the wellbeing of our valued employees and dogs.
  • build upon our history, by continuing to foster a rewarding experience for our clients, while remaining engaged and invested in their welfare and success.
  • continuously transform ourselves through innovation in the evolving world in which we operate, adapting to changes in training techniques and equipment, legislation, and the recognition of new types of disabilities.
