Staying in Touch with the Latest News in the Service Dog Community

The world of service dogs and the rules that govern their use are equally dynamic. There are several fine newsletters published throughout the community keeping those partnered with service dogs up-to-date and connected.
  1. Assistance Dog Club of Puget Sound Newsletter- written by the members and associates of the ADC. People interested may subscribe for $20 a year.
  2. Harness Up-the biennial Newsletter of the National Association of Guide Dog Users, (NAGDU) contains information of interest to guide dog users and others associated with the guide dog movement and the organized blind. Unlike many other publications on the subject of guide dogs and their use articles appearing in Harness Up are written from the stand point of guide dog users themselves. Anyone who belongs to NAGDU and who is current on their membership dues is eligible to receive Harness Up in print, or on audio cassette.
  3. Partners Forum- IAADP's global information sharing & advocacy newsletter links together disabled persons with guide, hearing and service dogs and assistance dog training programs on 5 continents. Under the editorship of Joan Froling, our publication has been honored for excellence in the field of Canine Newspapers by the Dog Writers Association of America at their annual Awards Banquet in New York City on numerous occasions since 1994. Selected issues are available for free download. Those needing/wanting an alternative format can subscribe for $30 annually
